The Hoity-Toity Angel Christmas Musical: Grumpy Sheep is 21!

We're making the world right for the Hoity-Toity Angel in this article; she was very put out, as all proud, haughty angels would be, to be upstaged by the Very Hopeless Camel in our last blog! She does consider herself to be the "very, very best" after all!

The Hoity-Toity Angel Christmas nativity play was first published in 2002. Inspired (apparently) by the antics of a certain toddler within the Hoile household, the nativity musical, featuring a proud and snooty angel quickly became a firm favourite in UK schools. Every teacher, it appeared, had a perfect student to play the leading role! 

As with all of our nativities for primary schools, the traditional Christmas story is entwined with another gently humorous tale - with a message! In this utterly endearing Christmas musical the Hoity-Toity angel's vanity - and pristine garments - are sorely dented when she ends up scruffily covered in cobwebs on the stable floor, with crooked wings and torn dress to boot! But in her sorry state, she learns that visible looks don't matter one little bit - it's what you're like on the inside that really counts; a valuable lesson for the Hoity-Toity angel - and, well, us all.

In 2019 we're delighted to say that the Hoity-toity Angel was also published separately as an endearing children's Christmas story book by SPCK, with beautiful illustrations. So children can read ( or have the story read to them) after the great performance event - and the chorus of 'don't be so hoity-toity!' can happily chime on in school for just that little bit longer! (Was that 'bother, bother, bother' we hear you cry?) You'll instantly understand what we mean if you've ever performed the musical - if not, now's your chance! Perform the  Hoity-Toity Angel nativity play this Christmas - and all will be revealed...
