Fall Sale – Christmas Scripts 25% Off!

Aug2018sale_FBcover

It’s that time of year! We’re halfway through August, fall is just around the corner, and it’s time to choose a play to perform at Christmastime. If your church, co-op, or school performs a drama in December, we know what you’re experiencing: that early-autumn struggle of finding a new script, one that fits your drama team and presents a meaningful message without taking itself too seriously.

For an ideal script, the list of requirements is long. Comical, but appropriate; profound, but not preachy; substantial, but doable by a young (or busy!) group of actors. And it’s a nice bonus when the number of characters is flexible, the sets are interesting but not too complicated, and the script is the perfect length for your program.

We certainly can’t promise that all our scripts will satisfy every preference of your drama team. But maybe, from our variety of topics, lengths, and more, one play will meet your needs. Among our five Christmas dramas, the number of cast members ranges from 8 to 15; duration from 15 minutes to nearly 2 hours; and setting from Jewish Bethlehem, to Victorian London, to 1950s America, to modern New England.

And, most importantly, starting today all our Christmas dramas are on sale! From August 15 through September 15, our Christmas scripts are 25% off, meaning you save $20-$40 on your purchase!

Now is the time to start researching. Click on the images below to find each script’s webpage, where you can read full character lists (with descriptions and line counts for each role) and production notes (complete with costume and prop details as well as casting information, such as which characters can be doubled or played by either gender). Also linked on each page is an excerpt from the script, where you can get a flavor for the characters and plot setup.
