Camel Hot

Camel Hot is a light-hearted, unison cantata for children which tells the Christmas story in a rather unconventional way. It is particularly suitable for children aged 8 – 13 and includes a rockin’ and rollin’ camel, a very itchy stable and the chance for Joseph (rather than Mary) to sing the lullaby!

Tongue-in-cheek but not irreverent, the piece introduces the Christmas story in a humorous way and aims to provide a springboard for discussion as well as a vehicle for school and church productions. The most important elements of any successful performance of Camel Hot are energy, enthusiasm and a sense of humour

‘Begin again at Bethlehem’ and ‘Camel Hot’ should be performed in every primary school – I can’t imagine there being any better Christmas Musicals written for children. I remember both from beginning to end – and I still have my copies!”

– says Sera who sang in the first performance – seems like yesterday (but isn’t!)
