Christmas Factory, The - By Dave Corbett
It's a very cold and frosty Christmas Eve and Lisa, John and Chrissie are full of excitement about a visit from Santa. As mum tries to settle them for bedtime, Lisa picks up her very tatty teddy and wishes he could be fixed just one more time. The three children are soon sound asleep until a loud crash startles them and they go to investigate.
There in the living room is Father Christmas himself ... a very clumsy Father Christmas who has broken mum's new teapot! There's only one thing for it! Santa must fly back to winter wonderland to get mum a new present.
After much pleading from the excitable trio, the children are soon accompanying Santa on his sleigh along with tatty ted. At the Christmas Factory they meet a host of comical characters including busy elves, silly snowmen, talking toys and a very famous reindeer with a very shiny nose!
But can they replace mum's teapot and mend poor old tatty ted in time for Christmas morning?
Very easy to stage and teach with 29 speaking roles and a flexible cast size to suit your group numbers, from 29 actors upwards, with any number of chorus parts. Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks and Easy Play Piano Score also available. Suitable for key stages 1 and 2 (ages 5-11 years).
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is also availables. This CD-ROM teaches the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof. Just give it to the children and they’ll do the rest.
