This great new musical for children tells the story of young people from a church who go Christmas caroling. They become dismayed when a gold locket is taken from a home they visit. Deeper Christmas themes of forgiveness and reconciliation then emerge. The story and songs are new, but familiar carols and a tableau based on the Nativity make this a Christmas presentation that everyone will enjoy!
One Good Christmas includes roles for 17 young people (and three adults). Parts can be combined or divided as needed. A younger Cherub Choir could also be included in the first part of the show.
Sure to be a production to remember, One Good Christmas offers not only entertainment, but also a wonderful seasonal message for all who take part.
Duration: approx. 35-40 minutes.
