A CHRISTMAS PETER PAN
WHY IS THIS PLAY BEST FOR YOUR SCHOOL?

Written especially for young people to perform.
While you may find large cast plays from other publishers, most of those were originally written for adults or professional actors to perform. They often contain difficult dialogue, unfamiliar or complex language, and speeches too long for young children to memorize. They may even contain jokes, innuendos and subject matter that may not be appropriate for children.

Easy to understand and memorize.
Dialogue is simple, fresh, quick and humorous, keeping the action flowing without stops and starts between scenes. This keeps young people and young audiences engaged throughout the performance - no awkward pauses, no dead-time, no wiggles!

Everyone participates!
All children are involved throughout the performance. This builds confidence, promotes team spirit and eliminates rehearsal rowdiness. The audience is often asked to join in the fun, and action often spills into the aisles! All of our SCHOOL PLAYS give suggestions on how to divide up large parts (such as Snow White or Cinderella) among several performers so that no one child is the "star".

Familiar stories with upbeat endings.
The story line stays as close as possible to the familiar story the kids already know.  While some authors feel the need to "improve" the story, our SCHOOL PLAYS stay as close to the familiar narrative as possible, making it easier for children - and your audience - to understand.

Feel free to edit!  Go ahead and tape it!
Most publishers insist that no changes may be made to their scripts.  We know that your goal is to engage every child in the most meaningful way and that your needs are unique.  Cut, eliminate, re-assign lines, or add as much as you like!  Also, there are no restrictions on video tapes.  Parents want a tape or DVD to remember their child's big moment.   Go ahead and tape away!


A CHRISTMAS PETER PAN
A NOTE FROM THE PLAYWRIGHT

In the past few years we've seen a tremendous increase of confidence in the teachers we hear from.  Most are finding it easier to let the process flow and worry less about the final product.  I firmly believe that the experience will be best for all when you keep a few things in mind:

Free yourself from worry about whether or not it's "good".  No one is paying big ticket prices; no one expects a Broadway success.  The key to making this project meaningful is to put the emphasis on process; realize that rehearsal and practice are as much a part of the experience as the actual performance.  Encourage fun and you will free the children from embarrassment and stress.  If the kids can't learn the lines let them carry a script or use their own words to convey the character's message.  If they seem to wander the stage, let them explore where they want to go - they might surprise you with a wonderful idea.  In every aspect of the process give them the wings to create and think.  Give them a comfortable, supportive place to go and their confidence and self-expression will soar!

Above all else, make sure you are having fun.  If you've never directed a play before, don't worry.  It's all just pretend -- you can't do it wrong!  The quality of your experience is every bit as important as that of the children.  You need the joy of self-expression too, that doesn't go away when we grow up.  So give yourself a break.  And when all else fails, laugh!

Thank you so much for choosing A Christmas Peter Pan.  I hope you and your young friends have as much fun performing this play as I did writing it.

A CHRISTMAS PETER PAN
SCRIPT SAMPLE

The Snow Fairies introduce the Pirates and Captain Hook.
(Script pages 18-20)

MORNING SKY:  And not far away in Peppermint Cove...

STARSHINE:  Captain Hook's boys were hiding out...

(SOUND CUE #8: Pirate music. [sample]

PIRATES enter as their names are called carrying mops, except for SMEE who carries the bucket.  They can dip their mops in bucket, later SMEE will use it for pudding pot.)

WHITEWING:  The first pirate's name was Tattoo Bill...

TATTOO BILL:  (Pushes up sleeve and flexes muscles, to audience.)  Ha-ha! See my terrible tattoos, you scallywags!  Argg!

MORNINGSKY:  Then came Skylights...

SKYLIGHTS:  Ha-ha!  See my terrible glass eye!  (Lifts eye patch.) Argg!

MOONDUST:  Then Noodler whose hands were fixed on backwards.

NOODLER:  Ha-ha!  See my terrible hands that are fixed on backwards!  Argg!

STARSHINE:  Then Smee who was a terrible, terrible cook!

SMEE:  Ha-ha!  Try my terrible, terrible food!   (He goes to audience in front row or aisle seat and offers a spoonful of soup.)  Have a taste of my Pirate Plum Puddin'!  (Puts wooden spoon to audience member's mouth.)  Terrible, isn't it?  (audience member agrees.)  Argg!

(SKIP FORWARD TO NEXT SOUND CUE.

SOUND CUE #9: Deck the Halls [short intro].  [sample]

SMEE leads PIRATES in song as they mop.)

ALL PIRATES:  (Singing.)

Swab the deck and scrub the galley!
Fa la la la la la la la la la.
Tis the season to be rowdy!
Fa la la la la la la la la la.
We're the pirates of the season!
Fa la la la la la la la la la.
Join us now in merry treason!
Fa la la la la la la la la la.

(SOUND CUE ENDS.  All PIRATES except SMEE exit.)

WHITEWING:  But there was one pirate more terrible than all the others put together...

SMEE:  Psst!  Coast is clear, Captain!

(CAPTAIN HOOK sticks his head out, looking around cautiously, sniffing for enemies.)

CAPTAIN HOOK:  No Indians?

SMEE:  No.

CAPTAIN HOOK:  No children?

SMEE:  No!

CAPTAIN HOOK:  No cro... cro... crocodile?

SMEE:  No sir, Captain!  Haul him in!

(CAPTAIN HOOK pulls on rope, tugging in his bounty:  PETER PAN wrapped in ropes with gag in his mouth.  PETER PAN struggles and makes muted sounds while SMEE and CAPTAIN HOOK tie him to the Christmas tree.)

CAPTAIN HOOK:  Ha-ha, Peter Pan!  What's the matter there, Peter?  Looks like you're a little tied up at the moment!

SMEE:  You just had to get an eyeful of old Santy, didn't ya?

CAPTAIN HOOK:  That's what I like about you Peter.  You'll never grow up. 

(PETER PAN spits out his gag.)

PETER PAN:  What have you done with Santa, Hook?

CAPTAIN HOOK:  Let's just say we've got him on ice. 

SMEE:  Let's just say he's a little under the weather.

CAPTAIN HOOK:  Let's just say he's got himself a little... cold!

(CAPTAIN HOOK and SMEE laugh uproariously.)

PETER PAN:  Ice?  Cold?  You've frozen Santa?

CAPTAIN HOOK:  What else am I supposed to do with all this ice we got up here at the North Pole, hmm?

PETER PAN:  But you can't do that!  He's got toys to deliver!  It's almost Christmas morning!

CAPTAIN HOOK:  Christmas!  Christmas!  Blast your blitherin' blubberin' Christmas!  It's over, Peter!  All over!

      (SOUND CUE #10: Twelve Days of Christmas [short intro].)  [sample]

CAPTAIN HOOK & SMEE:  (Singing.)

On the worst day of Christmas we poked 'em in the brig!
We've captured Peter!  We've frozen Santa!
We're gonna blow it!  We're gonna sink it!
We're gonna crush it!  We're gonna bash it!
Christmas beware!
No lousy trees!
No darned socks!
No toys for tots!
Stick it all in your jolly old ear!

(SOUND CUE ENDS.)

PETER PAN:  That's all well and good for me, Captain!  But what do you think the Crocodile will think of it?

CAPTAIN HOOK:  (Suddenly terrified.)  Crocodile!  Did you say Cro... cro... cro... Crocodile?

SMEE:  Shut your claptrap!  Nobody says that around the Captain.  Never say...

PETER PAN:  What?  Crocodile???  Oh, that's right the Captain doesn't like crocodiles does he?  He's scared of the Crocodile, isn't he?

SMEE:  Ever since that scallywaggin' reptile ate his arm...

CAPTAIN HOOK:  Arg!  (Grabs his hook, swoons with fear.)  Ahhhrrrgggg!!!!
