"I’ve come to offer my services. I want to be-a his navigator, like-a. . . you know, Rudy’s sidekick. I want to see-a the world, to fly with the MAIN MAN."
Take a trip around the world this Christmas with this absolutely darling royalty-free play! Written by a National Board Certified Teacher in elementary music, our plays have tickled and delighted audiences all over the USA and Canada! Each one is comprised of five or more scenes that are designed to fit in between musical performances by different grade levels or groups of singers. You may not have that many singing groups. No problem!! Simply run two scenes back to back. Or should you just want a great little play for your upper elementary or middle school students, you can perform these scenes simply as a play, without the musical groups. This format allows you, the director, the flexibility to choose the music you want and still give your students the chance to experience the magic of theatre!
Everywhere, It's Christmas! synopsis:

Along the way, he and his new friends introduce the audience to Sinterklass and his companion Black Pete from Holland. . . Hoteiosho and the New Year’s traditions of Japan. . . . the breaking of the piñata during Mexico’s La Fiesta de la Posada. . . as well as Papai Noel of Brazil and his noisy helicopter ride into Rio. During the play, the true story of the emergency that led Franz Gruber to pen Stille Nacht. . . (you know, . . Silent Night!) is shared by Heidi, Elga, and Anna after Mario interrupts the singers and insists the story be told. Finally, Mario meets his hero, Befana, who shares with him the story of the first carol of the New World, the hauntingly beautiful Huron Carol.
