Christmas musical for 7-11 years (KS2)
Running time 60 minutes approx.
A new updated version of one of Edgy Productions' best-selling Christmas shows! Who should win an award for Outstanding Contribution to Christmas? Santa? Christmas cards? Christmas trees? The turkey dinner? What about snow? Find out the answer in this, the most star-studded event of the year - the Christmas Awards Ceremony from Holly-wood in Tinsel-Town! It's a musical reminder of what it truly means to be a Christmas star!
It’s the Christmas awards ceremony (Song – ‘The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas’), from Holly-wood in Tinsel-town, presented by the beautiful Miss Carol Singer, and the dashing Mr Noël Knowles. Out on the red carpet Ollie Berry and Chrissie Pressie are with an excited crowd of fans who’ve come to see their favourite Christmas ‘stars’ arrive. Which of these stars will win the ‘Cracker’, the prestigious award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Christmas’?
Will it be the faithful Christmas cards, who keep everyone in touch with each other over the festive season (Song – ‘Send Me On My Way’)? Perhaps it will be Santa and his jolly helpers, who deliver all those presents to ‘good’ boys and girls (Song – ‘Boogie Woogie Santa’). Although it’s not shown up in recent years maybe Snow will walk away with the award (Song – ‘Why Won’t It Snow ?’). Surely the Christmas trees, which bring a warm and happy glow to every house, are in with a chance (Song – ‘Christmas Tree Song’). And then there’s the Christmas dinner, which brings families together to feast on turkey and the trimmings (Song – ‘Christmas Dinner Is A Winner’). Each star tells the audience why they’ve made an outstanding contribution to Christmas and the crowd eagerly waits to find out who will take home the ‘Cracker’.
But then we hear of a late entry – another ‘star’, this time a real star by the name of Beth (short for ‘the Star of Bethlehem), who made a contribution to the very first Christmas many years ago. She tells us a wondrous story of a baby, born in a stable (Song – Silent Night’). After hearing this tale everyone agrees there can only be one recipient of the award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Christmas’.
The award is given to its rightful winner, whose acceptance speech recognises all the other stars’ contributions to making every Christmas so special. With much celebration the ceremony closes with a reprise of the song ‘The Stars are coming out for Christmas’.
