A complete multicultural Christmas concert for students K-8

Christmas Castaways is a theme based, complete Christmas concert. It has been designed to include every student in the school while dividing the work load equally among the staff through the component system. Each staff member should become familiar with the story and the component they wish their class to perform. Each component is a unit in itself and can be rehearsed as a separate classroom unit, thus greatly reducing the time needed to prepare this production. Each component includes a description of the characters, props, costumes, and stage directions.

The component feature allows teachers to add or delete items to suit their particular school size. To include more classrooms, creative teachers may wish to make up or adapt acts from other countries. These can be inserted by writing a few introductory lines for the main characters and inserting a song for the choir which provides time for each act to get on and off stage. If your school does not wish to follow the theme, each individual component may be used in a variety concert by excluding the main characters and having a Master of Ceremonies.

THE STORY

Just prior to the Christmas holiday, a cruise ship went down at sea and a life boat of survivors have landed on a deserted tropical island. As it turns out they are all from different countries. Christmas is drawing near and the individuals are, each in his own way, fearing they will miss the festivities of the season with their respective families, culture, and customs. While they await rescue, they discuss the traditions of Christmas in their own country. These are performed, in a serious and humorous light, on stage by the various classes. Of course, the common thread of the Nativity is found in all cultures that celebrate Christmas and so the concert culminates with the Nativity scene and the rescue of the "castaways" - the best Christmas gift of all.
