Christmas Grotto - By Dave Corbett
It's Christmas time at a large department store and Stevie, Annie and Polly are queuing outside Santa's Grotto with their mum. While little Polly waits patiently, Stevie and Annie are up to mischief and upsetting the store's agitated assistant. While mum dashes off to buy some crackers, the children are called for their turn and they excitedly enter the Grotto. Unfortunately, Stevie's mischievous behaviour continues as he tries to pull Santa's beard off!
After a stern telling off from Santa and with the store assistant approaching, they grab poor Polly's hand and make their escape through a door marked 'No Entry' which locks itself behind them. A magical world greets them on the other side but little Polly is scared and wants her mum. With no way back through the door, they must find another way back to the Grotto.
Along their strange adventure they meet lots of festive folk, penguin posties and abominable snowmen who are very naughty indeed! Will the children find their way back and will they learn their lesson?
Very easy to stage and teach with 31 speaking roles and a flexible cast size to suit your group numbers, from 23 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.
