Product Description
JINGLE BELLS is a short play dramatizing the origins of the song “Jingle Bells”. Christmas Eve, 1857, Boston. The Pierpont Family is ready to travel to Grandmother’s farm for Christmas dinner, but their new horse, Pettynoll, refuses to move. Father says that the man who sold the horse was from Quebec, and the Pierpont children, Lucas and Liza, wonder if perhaps the horse has another name — a Christmas name. Mother notes that “pettynoll” could also be pronounced “Petit Noël” — French for “little Christmas”. Hearing the correct pronunciation of its name, the horse whinnies but still does not move. Lucas and Liza suggest making up a Christmas song about riding a horse, and the family creates "Jingle Bells", which finally gets Pettynoll off and running. Playscript contains full set, stage, costume directions along with useful staging tips.
