Product Description
Perform Your Own "Top Twelve" Show!

Christmas Countdown is a mock TV "Countdown" Special that highlights 12 common (but often comical!) aspects of the season. For each number in the countdown there is a song and/or vignette for the students to perform.

Looking for a Christmas play? This is a completely original, kid-tested, high quality script for Christmas concerts & pageants that weaves music and story into one cohesive performance. Not sure which of my scripts is the best fit for you? Download my FREE Concert Script Comparison Chart

The goal of these concert scripts I have written is to allow groups of students (classes, choirs, etc) to perform individual musical numbers while having an actual story (with AUTHENTIC characters) to connect the performances together. This makes the resulting show easier to rehearse, but avoids the “rotating stage” style of concert. We know that the parents come to see their kids, but there’s no reason we can’t entertain them at the same time!

This script is great for letting lots of kids have a moment to shine, whether singing, acting, dancing, or even physical comedy. One of my favorite things about this script is the variety of talents that can be displayed. The “Elf” character is a great part for someone who is very outgoing and physically adept but may not be very strong at speaking in front of an audience. The two MCs should be chosen carefully as they carry much of the show and should have strong acting skills. You will also need other actors for various vignettes.

All of the songs used in this script have commonly available sheet music and karaoke backing tracks, making this script useable by anyone even if you don’t have anyone who plays the piano. Original versions as well as background tracks for all of these songs are available from iTunes.

*NOTE: This script contains actual CHRISTMAS content. If you are looking for a "holiday" concert that avoids any reference to religious content, this is not the script for you.

**Having said that, the script is "informative" in nature rather than supporting any specific belief.
