This is a nativity play designed for the needs of the modern parent i.e. it uses only costumes that the average time-poor, pointless-crap-rich family already owns. It preaches a message of love, acceptance and extreme laziness highly pertinent to our frantic society.
A generic nativity play set with stars and stuff. Enter Mary (a princess) and Batman. All their luggage is piled on the back of a patient grey zombie.
Song: “Little zombie”
Mary We need somewhere to rest. I am about to have a baby and our zombie is very tired.
Batman knocks in mid-air.
Batman Is there room in the inn?
Witch No, but you can sleep in the stable where I keep all the ghosts, vampires and ghouls.
Enter ten children in their Halloween costumes.
Song: “A Wraith in a Manger”
Narrator (a knight) Mary had her baby and she called him Jesus. She laid him in the manger.
Ghost Wooooooo, what a beautiful baby!
Count Dracula He looks tasty.
Mary (indulgently) Count Dracula, you need to learn about the spirit of Christmas!
Still the same generic nativity play set, only now Mary, Batman and all the Halloween characters sit down at the side of the stage to indicate we can’t see them.
Narrator And there were superheroes abiding in the fields, keeping watch over the city by night.
Enter six or seven superheroes.
Song: “O little town of Bethlehem, how full you are of crime”
Narrator Suddenly, the sky was full of princesses.
Enter fifteen princesses. Fourteen of them are Elsa from “Frozen”. The fifteenth is Xena, Warrior Princess, as she has a geeky mum who does cosplay.
Song: “The people that walked in darkness have Xena great light”
Xena, Warrior Princess Be not afraid! A child has been born in the city of Bethlehem who will save everybody much better than you do. However, he is being menaced by Count Dracula.
The superheroes have a quiet but intense argument among themselves.
Spiderman We will go to see him and bring him presents.
Same as Scene One but now with all the superheroes. The superheroes present the baby with a random selection of cuddly toys, weapons, pokémon cards etc.
Count Dracula This baby must be important, but I am getting very hungry.
Superman Don’t you dare try it, Dracula! We defeated you before!
Song: “Last Christmas, we skewered your heart”
By the way (thanks to Comics Alliance):
Nothing about the stage has changed, except perhaps a small ghoul has fallen off it. Enter three wise Jedi: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
Song: “We three kings escaped the Death Star”
Obi-Wan Kenobi We felt a disturbance in the Force and set out to bring gifts to the newborn king.
Luke We bring gold, frankincense, and myrrh-derous lightsabers.
The Jedi lay the lightsabers beside the crib.
Count Dracula I admit it, I can’t harm this baby. There’s simply too much peace and goodwill around. From now on I will give up sucking blood and eat only foil-wrapped chocolate coins and chestnut stuffing.
Everybody Hooray! Count Dracula has discovered the spirit of Christmas!
Song: “Dracul, the sharp-toothed vampire”
Darth Vader Jesus, I am your father.
Teacher Stop it, Nathan, that’s not in the Bible.
Song: “Have yourself a very mixed-up Christmas”
