Sing Nowell - A Fantasy for Christmas


Adrienne Howell

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

A fantasy journey through Christmas down the ages, Sing Nowell offers audience participation and even the interval can be part of the fantasy!

Tommy wants to join in singing Christmas carols, but is rejected because he can't sing in tune. The mysterious Professor Nowell sends him on a journey to find his voice in time for Christmas

Pursued by Herod's agents, helped by the Professor and the audience, Tommy travels back in time

He acts in a Mummers Play, becomes an unwilling apprentice, then a performer in a travelling fair, is imprisoned by a Major General and put in the stocks by the Lord of Misrule before, finally, he arrives in Herod's palace

Apart from its two principals, the play's casting options can involve a large cast with smallish speaking parts and feature a variety of school or community activities
