This is a readers theater adaptation of the book "The Great Reindeer Rebellion" written by Lisa Trumbauer with Illustrations by Jannie Ho
There are roles for 23 students. The Elves act as narrators for the story. Santa's Reindeer have gone on strike one week before Christmas. Santa decides to try and use other animals in their place. But they all seem to have their faults. So to save Christmas Santa must decide to either give the Reindeer what they want or deal with the other animals.
The story is more than a Christmas tale. It's about workers rights and Santa learning to be a better employer. It works best with 2nd and 3rd graders. I suggest getting the book to go along with the script to show the wonderful illustrations.
