And A Partridge In A Pear Tree
Performance Time: Approximately 60 minutes
Cast: 24-30+ flexible (Doubling possible)
A guy with an invisible drum, a medieval restaurant host who won’t break character, a milkmaid who just wants to get rid of some cheese, and a dancing snowflake in the world’s ugliest costume. These are just some of the characters you’ll find in “And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.” This 60-minute holiday play weaves together 12 five-minute scenes based on the well-known verses of the Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” With a basic set and hugely flexible cast from adults to children, this play uses humor and heart to remind us about the gifts we give and receive… and not just the ones you can buy in a store. Two endings are provided, one secular and one religious.
