This winter concert 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.)

Winter Songs included in this script:

  • Picnic in the Snow (Squadronaires)
  • Suzy Snowflake (Rosemary Clooney)
  • Sleigh Ride (Ella Fitzgerald)
  • It’s A Marshmallow World (Bing Crosby)
  • Let’s Start The New Year Right (Bing Crosby, from Holiday Inn)
  • Auld Lang Syne

*NOTE: This script is completely free of Christmas or religious references. It is suitable as a secular “winter” concert performance.
