This is a question Nativity Plays

Every year the little kids at schools all over get to put on a play. Often it's christmas themed, but the key thing is that everyone gets a part, whether it's Snowflake #12 or Mary or Grendel (yes, really).

Personally I played a 'Rich Husband' who refused to buy matches from some scabby street urchin. Never did see her again...

Who or what did you get to be? And what did you have to wear?

B3ta Nativity play, Act 1
Scene: classroom, B3ta Grant Maintained Primary School. Pasta and glitter glue CDCs adorn the walls. The teacher, Mr chthonic, is discussing the forthcoming nativity play.

Mr chthonic: (soothingly) Okay. Now, let's see... Pooflake, you've been very good this year. Consistent performance, just as expected. Right, you can be Joseph.

Pooflake: Woo!

SpankyHanky: But sir! Sir! That's not fair! I got loads of Best Ofs.

Mr chthonic: Sorry Spanky, but Joseph is a very responsible post. We need a reliable type like Pooflake in that role. You can be the Innkeeper.

(Pooflake belms beams.)

SpankyHanky: (huffily) I don't want to be the Innkeeper. I want to do Mary

Mr chthonic: What was that Spanky?

SpankyHanky: I said, who is going to be Mary?

CHCB: Oh, can I be Mary, sir, can I?

Mr chthonic: No, CHCB. Mary was a Virgin. The Bible is quite clear on that.

Enzyme: Actually, sir, that's a mistranslation-

Mr chthonic: (abruptly) yes, thank you Enzyme. At the risk of typecasting, you can be a Wise Man. BGB will play Mary.

(BGB pokes her tongue out at CHCB.)

Mr chthonic: The other two Wise Men are Sexmonkey and althegeordie. We need to keep them away from the goats so they can't be shepherds. Don't let them stand next to each other. Apeloverage is a shepherd. It's a non-speaking role so we should be safe from punnage. Rakky, chickenlady and rachelswipe are angels. I've got you down as the Archangel Gabriel, PJM, but if you utter a word about unmarried mothers on benefits, I'll have your life. Everyone else is a sheep or a donkey. CHCB, you can be the narrator.

CHCB: (bitterly) I'm always the narrator.

Mr chthonic: your Norn Irish accent puts the fear of god into the others. That seems fitting.
(Claps hands) Right! Rehersals start tomorrow. Spanky, stop pulling BGB's hair or I'll send you to the Headmaster. Remember what happened last time you went to see Mr Rob? Yes, well, not another word out of you.

(Act 2 is here)

Aww, Loon
YOu can be the star. The Star. The one that guides Enzyme, al and Bert to some poxy stable. The Star is a very important role. If it wasn't for The Star, the wise men would still be wandering around the desert, molesting camels.

I'm not terribly good at twinkling.
Besides, I somehow doubt that Enzyme would have much of anything to do with this, as it's bible related.

'Sokay, I have stage fright anyway.

And me...
...can I be a shepherd?

Okay. That was a good pun you just did, so you are rewarded with a non-speaking tea-towel based role.

Obviously this is fucking magnificent
...I am an attention whore...

Innkeeper will do fine. Joseph was a cunt anyway. And I'd do the Innkeeper in the style of Scarface.

Joseph was a cunt?...

Well then it's the best bit of casting since they gave the voice of Garfield to Bill Murray.

Woo again!

Spanks, we can privately act out the little known scene from the nativity, where the innkeeper says:

"Well, we might have some room at the inn...but you'll have to let me touch your cock first"
(, Fri 27 Mar 2009, 16:07, closed)
Or the scene
where the innkeeper produces the photos of Mary sucking off the donkey and threatens to blackmail her unless she does unspeakable inkeeper-related-sex-acts.

Virgin my arse...

"Say hello to my little inn"
(, Fri 27 Mar 2009, 16:17, closed)
That'd be fantastic.
Innkeeper opens door to reveal a huge pile of coke and an assault rifle. Then sends his dwarf mate out back to check on the animals.
Dwarf mate hits his head on the roof of the stable, and the innkeeper quips

"Stable low to my leetle friend!"

no laughs? It's all in how I tell 'em...

Can I be in charge of
handing out orange squash and bourbon buiscits at the interval?
(, Fri 27 Mar 2009, 15:56, closed)
hell yes
make sure it's extra watery squash

I might eat some (most) of the tasty buiscits though.

I'm a trained ac-tor, you know. :(

I'm *ahem* fully-equipped!

Tell people that you're the Metatron and they look at you blankly.
Mention something from a Charlton Heston movie and suddenly everyone's a biblical scholar!

Do you drench everyone who enters your bedroom in fire retardant chemicals? It's no wonder you're single!

An angel!

I never, ever got to be an angel - being dark haired and far too mouthy for my own good. I was always the narrator apart from one excellent time when I was HEROD! Oh yes, no typecasting going on there.

I shall make my own angel costume - something a little Jade inspired perhaps...
(, Fri 27 Mar 2009, 17:38, closed)
I can soooo see you as an angel.
With the light behind you shining through your curly hair and making you look all ethereal : )

and shining through her skirt and the gauzy blouse...

Yeah, I'm all for this.

An interesting thought

Can I be Herod?
I have an inherent unease around small children, and a fetchingly sinister beard. Well, sinisterish, but I stroke it meaningfully a lot and glower when I'm doing it.

You're on.
Camp up the paedo routine.

I shall be Herod in the style of Kenneth Williams mixed with Ray Winstone. I think it's a goer.

And Mary Magdalene, apparently. Although the church doesn't talk about that bit much.

Did you know
that churches used to have pictures of her looking all sad and that in and this is where the word maudlin comes from?

I like the idea of being Mr Chthonic

use red pen any more.

Too upsetting.

Dear CHCB, can I please have a part?
I'll play with it until white stuff comes out. I think it's about time we had a nativity play with a bukkake scene.
