What are your recollections of nativity plays?

Nativity play season is below way, and 2,000 parents on the Netmums website have been discussing the ways in which the tradition has altered. These days, apparently, rather than just featuring Mary, Joseph, an innkeeper, assorted donkeys, smart guys and angels, some nativity plays have branched out to consist of aliens, lobsters, footballers and Elvis – an unusually intriguing night at the inn.

What are your memories of appearing in a nativity play, or going to see your youngsters in one particular? Did you ever land a plum part, or have been you permanently relegated to the donkey’s back legs? Did you bear in mind your lines, or fluff them entirely? And what was the dream role you never landed?
