Christmas Is Cancelled

by Clive Hulme

This is a project for schools and drama groups which will result in a Christmas-themed radio play. It includes the script and lots of technical information and tips. There are even introductory activities and suggestions for follow-up work. It isn't complicated, it's easily achievable no matter what your level of expertise and equipment. This is the Christmas play you thought would not happen this year! Suitable for Year 3 up to Year 7 – and possibly even beyond. Share the resulting 10-20 minute recording with other classes and parents and bring the spirit of Christmas back.
