Christmas Titles

Here's our small but interesting selection of musicals specifically for Christmas productions ...

A Christmas Carol

Principals : 6m, 3f, 1m/f, 1 child male    Support  : Large (Adult/Youth Chorus/Cameos)
A relatively easy to stage, musical version of the Dickens classic tale. Some interesting principal roles and lots of chorus work combine to make this an ideal choice for groups that produce a Christmas fund-raiser in between their main shows, or maybe taking the place of a panto as an alternative piece of traditional Christmas theatre.

And here are some plays, and plays-with-music, with a Christmas flavour ...

A Christmas Carol

(3m, 2f minimum)
An adaptation of the famous Christmas tale, designed for small touring company, but could be played by a large cast. The audience are invited to take part if they wish as human sound effects either singly or in groups which adds to the ‘experience’! The production can also be performed using more actors and recorded sound effects without audience involvement or a mixture of both.

The Canterville Ghost

(2m, 3f minimum)
Oscar Wilde's tale of an American family moving into a British mansion, Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance its tired ghost. The family, which refuses to believe in the ghost, is in Wilde's way a commentary on the British nobility of the day, and on Americans, too. The tale, like many of Wilde's, is rich with allusion, but ends as sentimental romance. This adaptation, designed primarily for a small touring company, is aimed at audiences over the festive season, and was re-worked to take place at Christmas. It includes carols, which the audience can join in with if they so wish.


(9m, 12f)
'Tinsel' is a large cast, full length play with lots of lovely cameo parts and is set in the struggling Pebbledon Theatre. Here, the Pebbledon Reps are rehearsing their Christmas show, putting up with cheap costumes and tatty scenery. The theatre’s owner has died, leaving his long-lost daughter as sole beneficiary, but she cannot be traced. Instead, his great-great-niece, Stacey Starchy, could inherit. Her plans though, threaten the very fabric of the theatre itself.
