Seven Cities. . . Tens of thousands of merry music makers. . .
One shimmering spectacle . . .Coming soon!
Another round of auditions right here at the North Pole,
the HO – HO – HO – Home of the original Rock’n Roll Christmas!
If you loved the original America Idol show, you will be delighted with this darling royalty-free play! Hosted by the suave Ryan Starcrest (and assisted by that eternal teenager, Dick “Deck the Halls” Clark), the contest is judged by who else, but Paula Poinsettia, Simon Snowflake, and Randy Jingles. It even has a perfect place for a surprise teacher/staff performance that will thrill your students and their guests!
Shimmering Star Search synopsis:
All the girls know that Merrie Mistletoe is a sure bet to win the Shimmering Star Search auditions. That is except Merrie herself. Then there are those cocky reindeer—CoCo and his band, the Peppermints. So smug and cool, they are so sure that they have this contest tied up with a bright red bow. After much persuasion by Cinnamon and her little elf cronies, Merrie finally agrees to perform.
At just the moment of the big announcement, Simon pops off one too many times and Randy gets nose to nose with him, inviting him to “take it outside.” Jingle bells interrupt the moment when a surprise visitor, the Merry ol’ Elf himself, comes out of the audience onto the Shimmering Star Search stage. Santa give both cast and contestants a good scolding– reminding them that Christmas isn’t about demanding star power, but about offering our gifts in service and love. All ends well when CoCo invites them all to a big caroling party and asks Merrie and her girls to join him and the band in a rousing duet of “Jingle Bells.”
Written by a National Board Certified Teacher in elementary music, this play is so much fun for your actors as well as your audience! Our plays are 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!
