Cinderella Christmas Play
This script is actually based on a PSHE unit of work - on how understanding one another's perspectives can help resolve a conflict. But I have included it in my Christmas collection because there is a reference to Christmas at the beginning and the end of the play. The script could be extended by the inclusion of some of the 40 Xmas jokes available free off www.plays-r-ussell.com
Cast of 30 - easily adapted up or down; likewise, with duration - reading time approx 10 minutes (plus music suggestions - taking assembly time to around 20-30 minutes)
Music 5: Sisters are Doin’ it for Themselves – Eurythmics
(All three sisters sing and dance – chorus and couple of verses)
Narrator: (Applauding) Bravo! Bravo! Which brings us to a truly happy ending. It looks like this family really will live happily ever after.
Cinderella: But of course life’s not always like a fairy tale with a fairy tale ending.
Father: Some people go through their lives taking their misery out on others.
Stepsister 1: Which is why it’s so important sometimes to stop and think about why we are behaving in a particular way.
Stepsister 2: If we are unhappy we should talk about it – not just take it out on others.
Stepsister 1: Understanding why we are behaving the way we are is half the battle.
Stepsister 2: Then we can do something about it.
Stepsisters 1 & 2: (Together) And feel happy again!
Narrator: And perhaps especially at this festive time of year, we should all be thinking about how we can make ourselves happy – by making others so!
Father: And to that end, we would like to share the following with you. Take it away, girls!
