“When I saw ‘The Other Christmas Story’ I thought, what a perfect conclusion for our day because no matter what customs or traditions we follow or legends we learn about, the BEST story is the real story which gives meaning to everything else.” Candy Watkins, Messiah Lutheran Church, S. Williamsport, PA, USA
This fun drama script would be ideal for use in a Christmas family service or school assembly.
Christmas is a time for all sorts of stories. There are familiar films on television and Santa books at bedtime and family tales of disastrous past Christmases. They are all happily familiar – but which one is the real Christmas story? What is Christmas about?
This is an audience participation piece, with two narrators using keywords that have actions attached. There is plenty of scope for interacting with the audience and – well, just having fun!
“Thanks for your script ‘The Other Christmas Story’ which went down well at the beginning of our carol service. Loads of audience participation, fun but with a serious message” Hilary Taylor, Ashford Common Baptist Church, UK
