PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Waiting for the Christmas train that brought Santa to the farthest reaches of the Appalachian Mountains, a group of small town children reach out to the strangers thrust into their midst and demonstrate the true meaning of Christmas.

This one act Christmas drama uses homespun dialogue to harken back to a time and place when entire communities would pitch in to work together because survival depended on people helping one another. The Appalachian traditions mentioned are just a few of the ones common in the area at the time.

Written originally to showcase dulcimers, recorders and traditional folk instruments it works well with Appalachian folk music and carols inserted into the music cues. By changing or leaving out a few lines this endearing drama can also be performed without music without losing its appeal.

A big hit with the fifth graders who played the main parts, it’s also suitable for grades 4 through 12.

19 Players:10 males, 9 females- Most parts can be gender neutral
(30 to 45 minutes depending on how much music you use) Minimal costumes and sets.
