Born This Night – A Nativity Musical with Makaton by Rebecca Thompson


Licensed by the Makaton Charity, this nativity musical includes Makaton line drawings to help allow children with communication difficulties and/or English as an Additional Language to participate meaningfully alongside their peers in their school performance.

Born This Night has been written by Rebecca Thompson who is both a primary school teacher and a parent of Jacob, who has Down Syndrome. Her musical has a simple rhyming script and adaptable parts to suit small or larger casts.  The songs are catchy, easy to learn and can be performed with or without Makaton signing.
