Synopsis

Three completely different short plays: ‘Twas the Night Before Columbus Day … I Mean Christmas (2m., 3w., 4 either gender) presents the funniest recitation of the famous poem you’ve ever heard. A nerdy character who brags about his infallible memory enters the stage to recite the poem and messes up every line … to the enormous delight of children in the audience, who prompt him. The Angels’ Greatest Message (2m., 6 either gender. Can be expanded.) presents the Christmas story in a refreshing new way, from the point of view of the angels who are chosen to announce the birth of Jesus to the shepherds. The Littlest Angel, who has dreamed of going to earth to pet a little lamb, begs to go along. How Santa Claus Discovered Christmas (3m., 2w., 11 either gender)tells about the Christmas Eve when Santa Claus sprained his ankle and was confined to a wheelchair. Just as he is giving up hopes of delivering toys to all the little children in the world, a young boy shows up and offers to help him—and does. When Santa thinks they have finished the job, the little boy tells him there is one child left and leads Santa to Bethlehem and the manger, where Santa sees the Wise Men delivering the world’s first Christmas presents.
