What Makes Christmas Merry by Lynn Brittney

£12.00 incl. zero VAT

The approximate running time of this play is 10 minutes.

A play in rhyme especially designed for children aged 6 to 8. The play opens with some Narrators wondering what it is exactly that makes Christmas such a merry time. Is it the food; the sweets; the toys; the decorations; snow; Santa?



At least 28 speaking parts but could be more if the lines are broken up between children.

Approximate running time of fifteen minutes.

There is one song at the end – We Wish You A Merry Christmas – which can be sung unaccompanied.

All the different components of Christmas come on stage and deliver little four line poems. This is an opportunity for some wonderful home-made costumes. At the end of the presentations, Santa comes on and reminds everyone that what really makes Christmas merry are family and friends and the cast end with a little song. Guaranteed to make infant school mothers cry.

No scenery or props are needed. As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on costumes.
