Christmas Under the Sea by Helen Nelson

£22.00 incl. zero VAT

The approximate running time of the play is 45 minutes.

The Elves find a letter from a child, after Santa has delivered all the presents on Christmas Eve. A present has to be delivered – but there’s a problem – the child in question lives under the sea, in a submarine! Time to teach the Reindeer to swim!



This play is a jolly romp through all things nautical. After Mrs Claus and the Elves have modified the sleigh to go underwater, Santa and his helpers set off on this new adventure. On the way they meet baby sharks, pirates, mermaids and sea kings. Lots of singing and dancing by all in a colourful (if unusual) setting. This has the potential to be a ‘big-cast’ play.

Songs suggested in the script are:

  • Rockin Around the Christmas Tree
  • Whistle While you Work
  • The Beautiful Briny
  • We Are Sailing
  • Baby Shark
  • A Pirate Went to Sea, Sea, Sea
  • Captain Hook is Comin to Town
  • Under the Sea
  • Santa’s Sleigh Came Sailing In


As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume making.
