Christmas Concert: 1940s Radio Broadcast


A Retro-Style Christmas Concert
This story takes place at a 1940s radio station during their Christmas Eve broadcast. Things start going awry when not everyone arrives in time for the show, and the program director is left to get someone – ANYone – to fill the roles.

The show is approximately 45 minutes in length.
It’s really hard to find high quality scripts for children that are both appropriate for the performers and entertaining for the audience. As both a teacher and an experienced musical theatre performer, I was disappointed by what was available… so I started writing my own! These scripts are based around genuine characters that encourage good acting skills from the students, and songs that are woven meaningfully right into the story with natural dialogue. (Instead of announcing, “now the kindergarten class will sing…” the songs are used as part of the story, as they would in a Broadway musical.)
• I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas
