Product Description
BRING A TORCH, JEANETTE, ISABELLA is a short play dramatizing the origins of the song “Bring a Torch Jeannette, Isabella”. A village in Provence, France, 1676. 11-year-old Camille is upset because she cannot attend the grand Christmas Eve ball — she and her 10-year-old twin sisters (Jeannette and Isabella) have been left in charge of running the family inn while their widowed mother goes to the next village to care for a sick friend. Camille is especially annoyed at two new arrivals, a young husband and pregnant wife, who are causing her even more work; at midnight, however, she hears strange noises from the outside loft and discovers the barn animals kneeling before the mother and her newborn baby — Jesus. Playscript contains full set, stage, costume directions along with useful staging tips.
