Christmas Concert: The Gift


Original Christmas Concert Script – Written by a performing arts specialist who is also an experienced performer.

Christmas Concert Script Synopsis
What do you get the child who has everything? Tinsel the elf likes everything neat, organized, and by the book, so they don’t know what to do when the North Pole receives a letter that doesn’t fit the usual rules. What do you give a child who has everything? Luckily, some elf friends help Tinsel to get creative, and the result is a gift that will last much longer than a toy.

This Christmas concert script is short (30 min) and sweet, with speaking parts for 8 characters and 6 songs that can be performed by a choir or separate classroom groups.

The show is approximately 30 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.)
