The Christmas Miracle 

The script excerpt
Scene One - Sandy’s bedroom & the orphanage garden

(Sandy is sitting on his bed talking to Snowflake.)

NARRATOR 1:      An unusually bright star had sparkled in the frosty sky above King Street for the past few days.  The starlight shone brightly down on two large homes in particular.  The first was a large ramshackled house that had seen better days: the shutters against the cold were broken and the roof was a patchwork of old broken tiles.

NARRATOR 2:      The second was an altogether different building: a grand mansion, with a sweeping driveway, high walls and manicured gardens.  In this house lived a young boy named Sandy O’Neil.  He lived with his father, a butler and a cook, but his only real friends were a kindly elderly gardener and Snowflake his labrador dog.

(There is a harsh knock at the door and Mr. O’Neil enters the room.)

MR. O’NEIL:     Dogs belong in kennels Sandy, not boys’ bedrooms. 

(Sandy hugs Snowflakes neck protectively.)

MR. O’NEIL:   Anyway, I’ve got to go away on business tomorrow: loans to make and bad loans to retrieve for the bank.

SANDY:   (Looking sad and pleading:) But it’s Christmas in four days time dad, can’t you stay just this once!  We could decorate the house with a Christmas tree and put up lights and decorations.....

MR. O’NEIL:     (Holds up hand to stop Sandy talking.) Hold on!  Sandy you’re ten years old.  You’re not a little boy: you know Santa doesn’t exist.  If I tell Mr Shine and Mrs Ovens to put up decorations what’s the point?  They only have to be removed a few weeks later.  You want them to have more work besides looking after you? 

SANDY:    (He hangs his head unhappily.)   I was only thinking....

MR. O’NEIL:    No Sandy, you weren’t thinking, just being childish.  And don’t mope around looking for old pictures of mum.  She died and we’ve got to move on.  Moping won’t get your homework done either. (He nods towards open school books on desk.)   I’ll say ‘goodbye’ before I go. 

(MR. O’NEIL exits and door closes. SANDY sits silently for a moment and wipes away tears.)

SANDY:  (Smiling sadly to Snowflake.)   No one’s putting you in a kennel.  I tell you every Christmas, but this year I really believe it’s going to be different! 

(Sound of childrens’ voices from outside the window.  MRS. MACINTOSH and the orphans enter the garden next door. SANDY and SNOWFLAKE look out the window to see MRS. MACINTOSH and the orphans looking and pointing at the stars.)

MRS. MACINTOSH:    (Strong Scottish accent.)  And those stars are the Plough, that’s the Great Bear......

HUGUES:    You mean the Great Teddy Bear!  (All laugh.)

MRS. MACINTOSH:   Well I see you’re thinking of bed and it’s getting late.  Come on, you lot, back to the house! 

(MRS. MACINTOSH beckons for the children to return to the house.  Orphans grumble and follow.  Peter carries a tired Stan. Sandy and Snowflake look at each other.)

SANDY:  I told you things are going to change.  You just wait and see.  (Snowflake ‘Woofs’ in reply and they fall asleep.)
