Arf! on the Housetop
Singing children, howling puppies and the one and only Santa Claus make a great combination for a holiday show. The local pound is overcrowded and in an uproar. Someone has eaten Buster Bulldog’s supper, Harold Hound Dog can’t get any sleep, and there’s no room at all to run and play. See how one family’s trip to the pound on Christmas Eve makes dreams come true for these canine characters and children around the world. With a message of sharing, caring and plenty of canine humor, this holiday musical features five original songs and easy-to-learn rhyming dialog with over 30 speaking parts.
Everything’s wild at the North Pole this time of year! Join the fun as Santa, the elves, the reindeer, and all of your students go crazy for Christmas! Program these nine songs individually, as a concert set, or as a simply staged 30-minute holiday program (using the optional script featuring 40 narrators). Includes complete choreography (also available for free online)! Recommended for grades 1-5.
Lights! Camera! Christmas!
We’re makin’ a movie about the one and only Santa Claus – but what style of movie fits the greatest elfin hero of all time? Thanks to a little help from Cecil B. DeGrille, Alfred Pitchfork, Steven Reelberg and a few other illustrious filmmakers, a young group of aspiring directors experience movie-making like never before, from Epic Extravaganza and Film Noir to Spaghetti Western and Super-hero-adventure film. This musical offers options for a simple or elaborate production, including the choice of two endings and suggestions for producing your very own movie. We’ll even show you how! Either way – it will be a blockbuster! This 40-minute musical features six original songs and connecting script with over 50 speaking parts.
