‘A Christmas show with something for everyone - very funny script - great songs.’
- Lincolnshire Primary School, UK.
Set in a Village Hall, Countdown to Christmas is a fun-filled musical look at the pre-Christmas goings on in a local community. Enjoy the hilarity that is the Weight Watchers Club as they strive to lose those extra few inches. The charm of Dolly the Pantomime Cow! Will Mr Shufflebottom ever get his drains fixed? What has Councillor Clott been up to? Can the Silver Surfers come to terms with new technology? And what really happened to Fred?
With a Rock Band that rocks (only slightly) and Cleaners who must never be upset. This festive offering will have your audience rolling in the aisles and tapping their feet but more importantly, lifting the children to a performance previously unseen.
Countdown to Christmas has been structured to maximise the available rehearsal time, with scenes that can be worked on class by class and then seamlessly stitched together to produce an evening’s entertainment of pure delight! Containing 42 speaking parts for the talented and, for the more reluctant thespians, 9 songs, choral and solo that explore the different genres of music. How can it fail?!!
