A funny play loosely based on the Tim Allen movie - The Santa Clause. ‘The Santa Clause’ tells the story of Scott Calvin, an ordinary man who accidentally causes Santa Claus to fall from his roof on Christmas Eve. Santa disappears but leaves his clothes and a note (The Santa Clause).
Scott and his two young sons have to finish Santa’s deliveries for the night, and then the reindeers fly them to the North Pole. Once there, Scott is greeted by Bernard and Julie, two elves, who explain to Scott about the Santa clause, and how he must become the new Santa.
Scott falls asleep and wakes in his own bed thinking it was all a dream until he starts to slowly turn into Santa. He then has to convince the one he loves that he isn’t crazy and that he is indeed the real ‘Santa Claus’.
There are song recommendations throughout the script, with a mixture of traditional Christmas songs and modern songs. There are 20 speaking parts, with additional non-speaking roles too for up to 30 students. The play is around 40-50 minutes long.
I hope you have fun with it, my class had a ball!
