My friend’s daughter is playing a mushroom/toadstool in this year’s Nativity grin

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Sat 11-Nov-17 20:20:53

I played a piece of tinsel once, and a bauble.

CherryChasingDotMuncher Sat 11-Nov-17 20:26:16

Someone on a thread the other day said they once played a leper in a nativity 😂

lookatyourwatchnow Sat 11-Nov-17 20:33:05

I would love it if my DC got to play lepers. Such better comedy value than a Shepherd

Ds1 was bird three (v. proud mummy moment), dd was a robot and ds2 hit the thesp heights when he was cast as the littlest Christmas tree.

I was on the PTA too shock

Dh and ds both played trees. Same school, same teacher 30 years apart.

PolarBearGoingSomewhere Sat 11-Nov-17 20:38:12

My best friend and I once played Cat and Lytic the converters grin

A polar bear with an axe in DDs nativity.

My brother was once an elephant in the nativity. Loads of people bought the DVD that year because he started a fight with the other elephants and the photographer filmed that instead of the actual nativity. I was once a member of the homeguard (I'm a girl!) in a Christmas play set in WWII

there was a Piece of Cheese in DC2's nativity a couple of years ago. It was quite a big role, actually.

millionsofpeaches Sat 11-Nov-17 20:44:00

Dd's had party pigs last year!!

iismum Sat 11-Nov-17 20:44:47

I was the chair of the parent council, and it really paid off when DD landed the plum role of the third chicken in her nativity.

titbumwillypoo Sat 11-Nov-17 21:04:19

I school i worked at did the Inn Keepers breakfast, children dressed as bacon, sausage and eggs. It was surreal.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sat 11-Nov-17 21:08:23

DS was a Stoormtrooper in last year's nativity (quite a loose adaptation.)

Pollaidh Sat 11-Nov-17 21:14:07

King Herod's harem was somewhat unexpected in a very nice infant school...

JayZed Sat 11-Nov-17 21:25:23

I remember all the boys in my class fought to be Jordan (Katie Price in her glamour model days) in the nativity one year hmm

Alexindisguise Sat 11-Nov-17 21:28:18

My nephew was a rock, he had to stay still crouched dressed in grey for the whole play. He was 4 and struggled with the still bit.

wobblywonderwoman Sat 11-Nov-17 21:35:49

These are hilarious
All boring roles in our school sadly

UnicornPug Sat 11-Nov-17 21:42:04

I once had a child tell his mum he'd been cast as an alligator. Thankfully she queried it before buying the costume as I'd actually cast him as a narrator....

Warmworm Sat 11-Nov-17 21:46:26

My dd was a vine. Her friend was a sea urchin. grin

EnglishRose13 Sat 11-Nov-17 21:49:18

When I was 4, I had the part of a snowflake in the nativity.

I played a robin the following year.

Dixiestampsagain Sat 11-Nov-17 22:05:51

My DD ‘auditioned’ to be Sharon Osborne this week but was a little disappointed to be chosen as Mary!!

sizeofalentil Sat 11-Nov-17 22:06:24

My friend played a wall in our school nativity play

DustyCropHopper Sat 11-Nov-17 22:14:29

My ds2 is a tea towel seller!

ILoveMillhousesDad Sat 11-Nov-17 22:15:39

My dd's school plays are always a bit bizarre and goes on for nearly 2 hours. There are all kinds of random characters in that!!
