About Countdown To Christmas

With the help of a rather unusual Advent calendar, Countdown to Christmas charts the progress of a contemporary family as they battle their way through to the big day. With nine bite-sized cameos (ideal for individual classes), each with its own focus and theme song, this simple-to-stage show will not only have you smiling at the frantic pre-Christmas rush, but will also leave you with something special to remember long after Christmas is packed away.

All the elements that make a great Christmas are here: Christmas dinner, decorations, shopping, stockings, nativity plays, carol singing and even the festive hit single. Beautiful songs and a dazzling script ensure that this nativity for children will be a big hit - with children and parents alike.

A Performance Licence is required to perform Countdown To Christmas. You are able to purchase an Instant Performance Licence when you purchase this product, or a Standard Performance Licence at any time. For more information, please see below.
