Bring On the Snow! by Andy Beck & Brian Fisher
– Grades 4 and up, 30 minutes
This hilarious variety show is chock-full of one-liners, wintertime puns, and even a few knock-knock jokes! Plenty of parts allow you to show off oodles of young actors, or combine roles for just a select group of comedic kids. Silly skits include a pair of wisecracking reindeer, a snowflake ballet class, “Freeze-Whiz” (everyone’s favorite game show), and a directionally-challenged family of geese. It’s a breeze to put together – just stage the scenes around your regular choral formation. Featuring two-part music, appropriate for grades four and up. 30 minutes of bad jokes and belly laughs!
Holiday Road Trip by John Jacobson & Mac Huff
– Grades 4-8, 40 minutes
Celebrate local holiday traditions from coast-to-coast when “Uncle Nick” takes a busload of eager travelers for the ride of a lifetime! From singing the blues in Louisiana and dancing in the streets of Miami to a Texan line dance, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, a carriage ride in New York’s Central Park, and hitting the beach in Malibu, the fun never stops! Does Santa really show up in a boat pulled by eight alligators in New Orleans? Donner is going to Hollywood, Rudolph is posin’ at Muscle Beach, and Dasher is singing in a beach boy band! Discover that the universal themes of peace, joy and love are everywhere. Designed for performers in upper elementary and middle school, this 40-minute musical features seven original songs with connecting script and over 35 speaking parts. The Teacher Edition is filled with quality performance material including piano/vocal song arrangements and choreography, script, and helpful production guide. For added value, the ready-to-use student books include songs and script, and will enhance the musical experience for your young aspiring actors/singers!
