It's a such a funny and cute play for young children! Well, it just so happens that the pupils in this school are right about how snow is made, and it has absolutely nothing to do with air temperature. Ssh!, it's made by snow fairies, but they have a tendency to oversleep. Maybe, they're right about reindeer being able to fly as well?
This is an amusing and visually appealing Christmas play for pupils in Reception and Year One. Also the script is suitable for performances by little drama clubs or at home by family and friends. The cast is flexible - it can be enlarged easily or the play could be performed at home by as little as 2 actors (one child and one adult) as a pupet theatre.
Easy to stage light-hearted amusing play script with educational environmental aspects.
The play is perfect as part of Christmas school shows.
The play includes one dance scene (ballet) and recommendations for winter/Christmas songs (music CDs not included). There is a rich variety of roles: from non-speaking roles to several more challenging ones. The play production requires little in the way of stage arrangements.
Children will enjoy dressing up and performing as Snow Fairies, Polar Bears and other fun characters. The play includes a role for an adult, as the Teacher. This role allows an adult to direct and assist on stage if necessary.
