INTRO

Every year in the sleepy quaint Village of Winterbottom Mr. Witzer the richest man in the village who lives
in the large colourful house on top of Rosethistle hill would run a Christmas lights competition for all
houses in the Village. The house proclaimed as having the best lights display would win a Christmas
Holiday paid for in Las Vegas "the city of lights" jetting off to the Sun on Christmas Eve or the winner
could take a £10,000 cash prize. Mr Witzer loved lights more than he did people and he loved Christmas
more than anything in the World, his house was lit up wall to wall all year round with spectacular colour
changing fairy lights, he wanted it to be Christmas everyday. He was a slightly whacky man having never
worked in his life from being so rich and he was particularly used to getting his own way without
exception. But, his own way was not like that of everyone else who had learned how the real World
worked, at the age of 41 he hadn't quite grown up yet since no-one had been around to teach him, he
was orphaned at a very young age and his grandparents looked after him until they became too old
meaning Mr. Witzer had just done and acted as he'd pleased since he was a little boy. We'll learn much
more about Mr. Witzer as the story goes on.

The Christmas light competition was the highlight of the year for the Village of Winterbottom and the few
hundred villagers who lived there, the household that was crowned winner not only won an all expenses
paid trip to the city of lights for Christmas but they had the accolade of being the most imaginative and
brilliantly inspiring family in the whole village, everyone knew your name, you became a local celebrity. Of
course it's been a very very long time since anyone can remember any other than one family winning the
Christmas light competition. The Winston-Banks, the most material mad family you could possibly
imagine, they are the second richest family in the Village after Mr Witzer and they had every possession
going, from nice cars and expensive jewellery to the latest fashion for Mrs Winston-Banks and the
Winston-Banks children Harry and Hetty, well now, as we're talking about the children, they were plain
and simple spoilt rotten; candy treats all day long, a playground in their garden, all the latest and best toys
that were made, yes... they had all this and much much more. Mr Winston-Banks senior owned and
personally managed the banking and finances for the whole Village, he literally owned the place, a true
money loving fat cat. Year on year the other villagers tried their hardest to beat the Winston-Banks family
but year after year they came up with new and better themes and ideas that not only impressed the
parish council but wowed the entire village. Credit where credit is due (even though Mr Winston-Banks
didn't give much credit unless it came with 40% interest) the family had a talent for light shows but then of
course they could afford to.

Not everyone in the Village was wealthy, in fact the poorest family in the Village as bad luck would have
it, lived right next door to the Winston-Banks family. The Robin family were to say the least "delightful", an
almost exact opposite of the Winston-Banks, they didn't care much for money and they didn't care much
for things. Mr Robin, Michael is his name was a carpenter by trade and the family just about got by on his
earnings, the Robin family had been fortunate enough to inherit their house from his late father and a fine
house it was, large garden with a plethora of trees which the kids loved to climb, plenty of spacious rooms
and a good sized kitchen where the family enjoyed the culinary delights that Mrs Robin spent hours
preparing. The children were well mannered for the most part and although they never had much they
had a lot of friends which more than made up for having very few toys. Philippa was getting to an age
where she wanted more materialistic possessions and unfortunately she had befriended Hetty Winston-
Banks who would tease little Pip about not having as much as she did. Little Nick the Robin's boy was a
sweetheart and at the tender age of 4 he seemed to understand that life could be just as much fun
without any toys, he entertained himself by finding humour in almost everything and anything, he was
always smiling. This Christmas was a very special year for little Nick Robin, he discovered one of the
most wonderful things in the World that could be discovered, he discovered the magic of Santa Claus and
so our story begins."...

OPENING SCENE. Carol singers are singing (Sing: Angelic King) at a front door, camera pans out to
see the wondrous village of Winterbottom. (After song cue narration below).

In the pretty English Village of Winterbottom, kids were playing outside in the fresh snow, wrapped up
warm in winter coats, hats and mittens, carol singers were singing to open doors, houses were alight with
flashing colours, smoke poured out of every chimney in the village, every river and spring was frozen over
and skated on if you were brave enough to dare and the world was white all around, Christmas time was
finally here.

The postman, Mr Badger was delivering letters and the local paper the Winterbottom Times to the
Villagers, young Pip opens the door and thanks him for the mail, Mr Badger wishes her a merry Christmas
and goes on his way. The Robin family are having breakfast, Mr Robin is in his overalls dressed for work
and over breakfast they discuss the recent burglaries reported in the paper and the children are reminded
they need to do their lists to Santa, Nick wants to know more about Santa, who he is and what he does,
his mother tells him she will take him to meet Santa after breakfast when they go Christmas shopping.
Philippa is quite busy scribbling away and saying out loud what she wants, Mr Robin reminds his
daughter that she might not get everything she wants. Pip ignores the comment and has learnt from the
rich girl next door if she says certain things she should get her own way, she says to her Dad, "Daddy I
know you want me to be happy and you'll do what you can". The classic guilt trip. "We'll have to see
darling, business hasn't been fantastic this year, help your brother with writing his list to Santa we need
them done by tomorrow or Santa won't get them in time". (NOTE, over breakfast Michael is telling the
Children what they'll do together tomorrow (Christmas Eve, take them skating, and he tells them he's got
a really big surprise lined up etc), as he works every day of the year except Christmas eve, Christmas
Day and Boxing Day).

Mr Robin leaves for work, his wood shop is just down the street, (sing: Christmas Time is Here). Mrs
Robin takes the Children out shopping, little did they know their lives were about to be turned upside
down.

As we see from the Winterbottom Times headlines, not everything was as perfect as it should be in the
village, one man was trying his best to spoil Christmas for everybody. All the little boys and girls presents
were being stolen from underneath Christmas trees across the whole village and the village police have
tried everything to catch the so called Christmas Burglar. Being quite a clever intruder the only clue he
ever leaves behind at the crime scenes is what appears to be a black Santa hat and having stolen nearly
all the presents in the village the parents of all the children can't afford to replace the missing presents,
the children are very upset, Christmas is in danger of being completely ruined.

The Chief of Police, "Superintendent Atnas" a dark looking character is holding an emergency meeting
explaining they can't let anymore burglaries take place and they need to take action. He has instructed his
crack squadron of Christmas Burglar catchers to go out and arrest his number one suspect for the recent
crimes, he makes it very clear that the arrest should take place in public and the press should be alerted
that the Christmas Burglar has been apprehended.
Sirens on, but marching through the village (Song: Catch Him) the Superintendent shouts out to stop
and points to his suspects hide out, "we'll find him in there!" the police march comes to a clumsy halt, 9 of
the forces finest officers gracefully hurry over to surround the building while the Super calls Mr Robin out
with a mega phone (mega drama to catch everyone's attention). A poor unsuspecting Mr Robin is working
on a staircase order he needs to get done by New Years Day, he and his apprentice are working hard
and chatting away (showing how nice Michael is) when suddenly he is arrested, for what, he knows not
until he is read his rights and filled with horror. He has been very publicly humiliated and to make it worse
the police start hauling out stolen toys from Mr Robin's workshop.

Everyone has rushed out of their houses to see what's going on, the superintendent announces over the
mega phone that the Christmas burglar has been caught. The word spreads down the street that Mr
Robin has been arrested, word reaches The Winston-Banks house and Mr WB instantly speaks down his
nose about the whole family, "I knew it was Michael Robin all along, it makes sense doesn't it, with him
being so poor, he can't afford toys for his children so he steals them". Luckily Rebecca Robin wasn't
around to hear the upsetting slurs.

Blissfully unaware of what has happened Mrs Robin and the children are out shopping for presents, Pip is
still going on about what she wants and Nick is finding her very amusing. They see Santa has a little
grotto set-up in the Village Square, they get in line to go and see him. (Sing: Who Is This Silly Old Man).
After the song, Mrs Robin explains, "Now of course Santa is very busy at the moment making toys for
Christmas but all of his representatives are sent out to greet all the boys and girls of the World and ask
them how good they've been this year".

Just opposite Santas grotto as they leave, Mr Witzer is announcing the start of judging for the Christmas
lights competition, he will travel from street to street over the next two days with the winner announced on
Christmas eve when the chosen winner will Jet off to Vegas for Christmas. The kids ask if they will enter
this year as the family have never been on holiday and hear the WB's brag about Vegas every year. Mrs
Robin explains they can't really afford it but Daddy might have a surprise for them come Christmas Eve. It
seems the whole Village now knows that Mr Robin has been arrested and Rebecca becomes aware that
everyone is looking at them and whispering, it's glaringly obvious and Rebecca asks a friend what is
going on, (funny moment, friend just keeps saying, "you don't know"!). When her friend eventually talks,
she's horrified and rushes straight to the Police Station.

Superintendent Atnas let's Rebecca see her husband, Michael promises it wasn't him and Rebecca
knows it, if only somehow they could convince the Superintendent. Who incidentally has been listening in
on their conversation. Rebecca leaves very upset but at least she is sure her husband has done nothing
wrong. The super enters the room to see Michael, he treats him very poorly, guilty until proven innocent.
Michael picks up on his bad vibes and it clicks that Superintendent Atnas has set him up, he confronts
him, which only angers the Super further.

Rebecca gets the kids home,they see the WB family working on their lights display, she invites Mrs WB
over and asks the children to finish writing their Christmas lists to Santa. She is very upset and Mrs WB
tries to console her, though she is quite patronising at the same time.

The kids are working on their lists and they discuss that they need to get their Dad out of jail but don't
know where to start. Pip says that she has done her list and will write Nicks out for him. She says "so
what do you want from santa this year?" "That's it" he says, "Santa will find the real Christmas Burglar
and save Daddy". Pip tells him not to be silly and Santa is far too busy on Christmas Eve to come and
rescue their Dad but Nick says "Oh Pip, Santa is our only hope, if he doesn't help us then who will?" Pip
doesn't want to but she knows she has to tell Nick about Santa, "Look Nick, I heard a rumour" She says
tentatively. "Santa... Well, Santa might not exist but he's just a made up figure that kids think is real." Nick
begins to laugh. "Oh sis, you are funny, I know Santas real I saw him today, you saw him today!" "But that
was just a... you're right of course I know he's real, it was just a rumour I heard Hetty WB talking about."
Nick asks if she'll just write down what he says. (Sing: My First Letter to Santa).

Mrs Robin and the kids come outside to walk to the nearby Post Office, a client of Mr Robin's is waiting
outside and tells them that he doesn't want Mr Robin to do any more work for him and cancels his order,
this is a big blow and prompts a conversation about a bit of money the Robins owe Mr WB, this really
strikes a nerve at this difficult time and Mrs Robin accuses Mr WB of being money mad, as they walk to
the PO Mr WB accompanies them whilst singing, (Song: The Christmas Fat Cat). They just make the
last Christmas post on Dec 23rd, the letter goes on a fun journey when the Post Office throw it out with all
the other Santa Mail.

Some of Santa's elves (the Aurora squadron because they travel by light) are on a mission retrieving all
the mail thrown out by the Post Office, they fly it to the North Pole using puppy huskies that are formed of
lights like Aurora Borealis. Light travelling sends you doolally for a few days so the Aurora Squadron need
time off when they return, Santa would like to try it but fears it may cause him permanent damage
because he's too big his body would stretch over 3 miles. Cue a tour around Santas workshop, Santa is
checking up that everything is running on time. (Sing: The Santa Song).

Santa is going through the last of the mail entering toys, names and locations via voice activation onto
Cyber Santa (his personal assistant system). The Elves bring in the last sack of mail. Santa is literally
falling asleep as he comes to his last letter, he drops off just as he begins to read "To Mr Santa Claus"
spiralling into a deep sleep and it looks as if it's too late for young Nicks call to Santa for help.

Santa begins to dream, it's a wonderful family having fun and enjoying being with each other, then he
sees a woman curled up on her own and crying and a Man standing by himself and staring up at the sky
out of a barred window, he sees a playground full of children that are having so much fun except for one
boy who has all the sadness in the World upon his face, Santa's emotions send him into sweats of
despair he awakes and instantly realises the letter he holds in his hands is the once perfect family he just
dreamt of in turmoil. He must help, the most well behaved children in the World deserve what they ask for
from Santa. Mrs Claus says it's not a good idea, Santa tells her that there are less and less good people
left in the World and he wants to help them stay good and let them know that being nice still counts for a
lot.

Santa announces to the Elves that they need to finish making the rest of the presents without him and if
worse comes to worse they will need to deliver them to. He prepares for his trip to save the Robin family,
he must leave very early on the morning of Christmas Eve. The Elves wave Santa off, they've never been
left alone before. You can see an instant decline in discipline, they start to chatter louder and louder, head
Elf calms everyone down, one rebellious Elf starts to sing (Now That Santas Gone).

The guards at the police station have warmed to Mr Robin and don't agree with the Chief that he is as
bad as he says. Mr Robin has befriended one guard in particular, "PC Barry Parry" who sneeks into his
cell for chats with him and cups of tea, Michael asks if PC Parry can help him get out or if he knows
anything and why he's been set-up. Barry reveals to Mr Robin that he doesn't think that he is the
Christmas burglar, this lifts Mr Robins spirits and they go on to talk about family and Christmas. After PC
Parry leaves, Mr Robin sings (Christmas Lock Up). Michael is very distressed, he sighs "how am I ever
going to get out!!"

Santa arrives into town just after Sun Rise and after his reindeer have dropped him off he tells them to
keep hidden while he goes on his mission. Realising he can't walk around in his bright red suit he shuts
his eyes and hey presto he's in a perfectly normal outfit. He now realises he can't just walk in and
announce that Santa is here to help as requested, Santa looks at the Reindeer and talks to them, "Yes I
know etc...". After going through a couple of terrible ideas with the deer, which they shook there heads at
profusely he decides he will pose as a lawyer and ask to speak with Mrs Robin, once inside he'll give her
magic sleepy dust that will last until she is woken.

Santa has a short walk to the Robin's Residence, along the way he speaks to the young boys and girls
addressing them by their names. This gives a couple of the parents cause for concern, after asking his
child "Do you know that man" and getting the answer, "Yeah, sure, that's Santa", one shouts out "Hey,
how do you know my boy?". "I know everyone's children Mr Newman and I haven't forgotten about what
you did to the Blackworthy's cat when you were 8 yrs old.", the parent is left dumbfounded and the young
boy is shaking his head at his Daddy. Santa arrives at 217 Rosethistle Lane, a red eyed Mrs Robin opens
the door, "Mrs Robin, may I come in, it's about your husband". "Is he ok" Mrs Robin says in a lovingly
concerned voice. "He's fine Mrs Robin, I'm here to see if I can help you." "Please come in, would you like
a drink of something?" "No, I'm just fine thank you."

They are both seated in the lounge when Mrs Robin enquires as to the purpose of his visit and Santa
says "Well, it's a matter of great importance, I don't believe that your husband has done a thing wrong
and I want to help him." No sooner had Santa uttered these unexpected words, he sneezed wildly in Mrs
Robin's direction, he'd blown sleepy dust at Mrs Robin and she was out like a light, frozen in time with a
look of relief and happiness across her pleasant face. Santa lay her down, closed her eyes and wrapped
a blanket over her.

"Nicholas, Philippa" Santa called out from the hallway. No reply. Santa wondered up a couple of steps,
calling again, still nothing but the sound of an empty house. He stood and listened for a second and heard
children in the distance. He turned to look outside through the back door and there were the children
building a snowman in the garden. Santa opened the back door, "Children!" He said, "We have some very
important work to be done". Philippa looked up terrified that there was a strange man standing in their
garden, "Who are you?" She demanded. Whilst little Nick stood with his jaw wide open, he muttered
"Santa Claus", then escalated to the extreme of an overdose on E-numbers, "IT'S SANTA!!" "Philippa,
don't you see, it's Santa he's come to rescue Daddy." Philippa doesn't believe that this is Santa and
warns her brother to stay behind her, she makes the strange man prove his identity, he has no problem
with this stating her full name, DOB and proceeding to list everything Philippa had on her Christmas list to
Santa. Philippa was sold and amazed.

Nick asked Santa what his plan was to save their Dad. Santa hadn't really thought about how they would
do it, he just gave Nick a reassuring, "Oh, it'll be fine young Nick, you'll see". Nick was just so happy to
see Santa he didn't really mind what the plan was, he just knew that there was no better man, or no better
Saint to save Christmas.

"Firstly we must go to the Police Station to see if we can talk to your father." "Shall we tell Mother first?",
"No, young Nicholas, parents don't understand adventure, they're too sensible and look your Mother has
fallen asleep." We'll leave her a note then." Said a concerned Philippa. "No time." Said Santa, "Come on
the sooner we leave the better."

At the Police Station the officer at the desk flatly refuses to let Mr Saint who was posing as the family
lawyer and the children visit Mr Robin. Santa is shouting at the guard, he is overwhelmingly frightened,
"Well, I'm under orders sir" he said cowering into his shell, "WHO'S ORDERS ARE THESE?" Santa
demands. "The Superintendents." "Let me see him then!" "Impossible I'm afraid, he's on an undercover
operation today and can see nobody." "Then who is second in command here, I need to speak with
them." The station Sergeant picks up the phone, "Inspector, would you be able to spare a moment
please?... Thank you sir." "He's on his way sir, please take a seat."

Santa sat down and young Nick jumped on his knee, the Sergeant gave an odd look as if that was very
strange behaviour for a child to sit so comfortably on a lawyers knee and look like the happiest kid in the
world. Santa gets angry and unleashes all laws of the land

Santa now has the Sergeant and the Inspector in front of him, they won't reason with him, even though
Santa gives them every law under the Sun (possibly a song) as to how they themselves could be put in
prison if they do not let them visit Mr Robin in private and that they can only hold him for 24 hours if he's
not been charged, the super could extend it to 12 hours but he's not there. He's had enough, he
hypnotises(or blows happy dust on them freeing them of all responsibility) the two police officers after
getting agitated and makes the two police men hold hands and go to release Mr Robin, they do so.

Mr Robin is very confused, why are his children with this man and how did he persuade two officers to
hold hands and be more pleasant than any other human on the planet whilst releasing him, they even
carried him out of the cell. Santa: "I'll explain everything in good time Mr Robin, right now we need to
leave".

On the way to the Robin residence Santa introduces himself as "Mr Saint" and explains that the children
hired him as the lawyer for this case, he explains he's working for free and just wants to help clear his
name and get the family back as it was. At home, Mrs Robin is fast asleep, Mr Robin wakes her. She
stirs, "Hello darling", then shocked out of her mind "MICHAEL, how, when, what's going on! Oh it's so
good to see you, I want you back home". Mr Robin reassures her, "I'm home sweetheart and I'm not
going anywhere". Santa interrupts, "Actually you are. The Police will be looking for you and we need to
catch the real Christmas burglar as soon as we can, it's Christmas Eve and I have a feeling he'll be
ruining as many Christmas's as he can as soon as it's dark, I've got a plan, we need to do some door
knocking and collect some bags." "Bags?" asked Mr Robin. "Yes, bags" Santa replied, "It's a simple plan
that requires us to collect bags". "If you say so." Mr Robin responded wanting to trust this man. Santa tells
the Children they must collect shopping bags from all their neighbours.

Back at the police station, Superintendent Atnas checks into the station to enquire if all is in order. The
desk sergeant is still as happy as larry, the Super shouts at him in an almighty tone and the sergeant
snaps out of his happy spell. "Hello Superintendent, sorry sir I didn't see you there." "You were in a World
of your own Sergeant Sharp, now do you have any station updates for me?". "Just the one sir, we
released Michael Robin with no charge." The sergeant said realising towards the end of the sentence that
this was the dumbest thing he'd ever done. The Super went ballistic and demanded an explanation, the
Sergeant couldn't quite remember what had happened. The Super watched it back on the station security
camera, after seeing his men holding hands and gently carrying out Mr Robin, shaking his hand and
hugging him, the Super exploded like a microwaved egg (song What the, How the, Why the?). "Find
him, get every man off annual leave and find this man, he's a criminal and you let him go, I ought to lock
you away" "But sir, the men... it's Christmas eve." The Super didn't even need to say another word, his
evil stare said it all. And so a mass manhunt began for Mr Robin the Christmas burglar and the
overweight man with the white beard.

The kids go off to collect bags from neighbours saying it’s for a recycling project. Santa and Michael
discuss how they are going to lure the police to catch the burglar red handed. (Santa asks what does Mr
Robin know about the Christmas burglar, the only thing anyone knows is that he wears a black Santa
outfit, burgles when people are out and targets affluent neighbourhoods and mostly the nicest house in
the street and leaves a black hat at each crime scene. Mrs Robin helps out here, after her husband was
arrested she took a keen interest in the burglars operations and she’d made a map of where the burglar
had struck, they spot a pattern that was leading the Christmas burglar right to their street.) Michael tells
Mr Saint there is something he desperately needs to do, Mr Saint tells him to leave to him.

Firstly the bags have been collected from neighbours, the kids have to sort through and pick out labelled
bags from expensive shops, they choose a few houses in the street which would appeal to the burglar
and plant the bags inside the dust bin, they tip off the police with the Street name to make sure they are
around. There is an inclination to believe the burglar will be cocky enough to rob houses right under the
nose of the police and they know the police will never see the burglar so they must spot the Christmas
burglar, wait for him to enter a house then Mr Robin will purposefully catch the attention of the police and
enter the house. Mr Robin will escape out the back and run home to change while the police catch the
real burglar In the act.

They must get a black Santa outfit by tonight, Santa knows just the elf for the job. They decide to get out
of the village and head out of their back garden across the fields, down a country lane to a beautiful forest
park on the way the kids ask what the big surprise was that their Daddy had planned for them, he tells
them he was going to enter the lights competition this year but with what has happened they won't be
able to set it all up in time. The family take their Dog Ballo with them whilst they hide out for a few hours
until darkness begins to fall. (Sing: Taking the Dog for a Walk) Santa calls the elf's to arrange the black
suit from a pay phone he calls on 0800 NTH POLE, the toy shop is in a state and the elf's have had a
massive party. Head Elf answers the phone with a very tired groggy voice, Santa suspects that something
is wrong and makes head elf suffer by shouting loudly down the phone. He explains they need a black
Santa outfit for a man 33" waist, 98 inner leg, 38" chest and a black hat, need this delivered to the bench
under the Oak tree, at Greenberry Park, "Do you know where that is?" "It's fine I'll use the Sant Nav".
"Good, see you there, oh and Head Elf, wake everyone up as it's already the afternoon and get ready for
Christmas Eve delivery, I can't believe you had a party with so much work to be done but good for you for
having some fun, you all deserve it! If all goes well here I'll be back way before midnight. Oh and there’s
one more thing I’ll need you and elf Tuggle to do…” (go to Mr Robins workshop and finish off the work
he’s done for the light show. Mr Robin has been working on something for months but hasn't been able to
put it together with all that's been going on).


Mr and Mrs Robin take the kids ice skating on a lake, the family forget their troubles and have a wonderful
time, Santa realises it’s really been worth helping the family, they are so happy. POSS Pip asks if she's
still going to get her toys, her Daddy has to be firm with her she runs off and gets upset (Sing: Does
Daddy Still Love Me). OR The family sing a more happy song whilst skating with a great dancing on ice
routine.

The black outfit is delivered by a rather worn out looking small man. Mr Robin comes over to join Santa
on the park bench and they discuss the plan, it’s starting to get dark and they’re running out of time.
Santa and the family make their way back to the Robin residence and soon realise there is a very heavy
police presence in the area which means they have to hide until the time is right to execute their plan. The
kids tree house is perfect to hide out and get ready for “operation bring down the Christmas burglar”.

The family meet in the tree house and get the plan underway. 4 walkie talkies, one for each of the adults
and one for the kids, Santa directs the plan, kids and Mrs Robin you’ll be the home look out. Mr Robin,
you need to make yourself invisible, hide in the shadows avoid the police at all costs until it’s time to be
spotted, if you get caught before we find the real criminal you could be put away for a very long time. I’ll
be our eye in the sky.” Santa had forgotten that he was hiding his identity for a second. Mr and Mrs Robin
were very confused while the kids just laughed. “How do you mean Mr Saint?” asked Mr Robin. “Oh it’s
just a figure of speech, I’m going to be on the roof with some binoculars.” Mr and Mrs Robin didn’t even
question it, “Great idea” voiced Mr Robin, “Just be careful up on the roof”.

Plan laid out they all moved into action.

Christmas Eve in the Village of Winterbottom was the perfect winter scene, a recent covering of snow on
the ground and roof tops, slight cloud in the sky with stars peeping through and no moon in sight giving
unlit ground the feel of total darkness. The kids wrapped up warm and settled on the porch, they looked
ready for business, a little bit scared but they were together with their Mum and this gave them the
bravery they needed to help their Dad. Mrs Robin tested the Walkie talkies on her walk. Mr Robin clung to
houses and ducked under windows in the hope he wouldn’t be spotted by anyone. Santa makes his way
back to his sleigh to get some height on the situation.

With the family in place all they can do is stay sharp and wait. Mr Robin though anxious finds the whole
situation extremely funny, he’s hiding in the dark watching the police run around like Jedward on stage,
dressed in a very silly outfit trying to clear his name of something he wouldn’t even dream about doing,
it’s a cruel World and if you don’t stand up for what’s right, you’ll get walked all over. Just as his thoughts
are running away with him, his walkie t goes off, it's Santa he's spotted something down the street, Mr
Robin makes his way to the spot, he sees a movement, it was a bin lid opening and all of a sudden the
bin looked like it was glowing, the glow disappeared and a figure made it’s way to a window, the figure
managed to open the window with ease and hopped in. Mr Robin waited a few seconds and ran across
the street trying his best to be obvious, the police eventually spotted him and began their chase. Mr Robin
jumped in through the window, quietly ran through the house so not to disturb the burglar and out the
back door to run home and change. The police surrounded the house, bashed down the door and pulled
out who they thought was Mr Robin back on the job. By this time the villagers had gathered round to see
what was going on. The Superintendent once again announces to the village that they have recaptured
the escaped Christmas burglar, “I can assure you all that Mr (pulls off balaclava) WITZER (shocked)
erm…Mr Witzer won’t be stealing anymore presents.” He has to explain himself when the crowd begin to
ask why Mr Robin was arrested. Mr Robin turned up and shouted “Yes, please do enlighten us
Superintendent Atnas!”. The Super said “Well, it's simple, as soon as the burglar thought we had
apprehended who we thought was the Christmas burglar he wasn't taking his normal high standard of
pre-caution, this meant we could double our efforts and catch the real burglar red handed. Our tactics
worked perfectly as you can see from our results.” Santa shouts something funny, “can anyone smell a
really bad liar?” the villagers start laughing and now want Mr. Witzer to explain why he’s been stealing all
the presents. Mr Witzer bursts into song after saying it's hard to explain (sing: to be written. Song should
explain why Mr Witzer stole all the presents and be pathetic enough for the villagers to take pity on him,
things like he’s lonely and bored and needed a bit of excitement, he's unhappy and didn't want everyone
else to have a good christmas he didn’t think about the money because he doesn’t understand money).
The village laugh at Mr Witzer for being so vulnerable and pathetic when they all thought he was the
exact opposite, Santa speaks up, “I suggest the punishment for Mr Witzer here should be to wrap every
single present and deliver them back to where they were stolen.” the villagers agree with a cheer. Mr
Witzer retorts "That... that’s not possible to do, I’ll donate money to the families.” Santa argues, “I believe
Santa Claus can do the whole world in one night, can you not do one village?” Someone asks “Who will
judge the Christmas lights competition!?” Santa tells them the head of the Parish Council will decide on
the winner whilst Mr. Witzer returns the presents.

The Villagers suddenly realise they don't know who this man is that's making all the decisions even
though he's very good at it. They start to ask who he is. Mr Robin tells everyone he's a friend of the family
and the head of the parish council (Mr Gideon) thanks him for sorting everything out and then says, "Let's
get this show on the road, Mr Witzer you'll get on with righting your wrongs under the supervision of
Superintendent Atnas and I'll judge the Christmas lights competition. The plane to Vegas leaves in 4
hours, so let's get on with it. Mr Parsleymight I borrow your Horse drawn carriage to glide around the
village to see everyone's entries?". "Of course sir, I'll drive you myself." he replies. The Villagers run after
the carriage and Mr Gideon makes notes along the way, a song ensues (sing: lights lights lights). The
carriage comes to a stop outside the Winston-Banks and the Robins house, all falls silent as everyone
sees the display outside the Robins house. Villagers start shouting, it's amazing, it's incredible, I've never
seen anything like it, it's beautiful, "it's the winner" shouts Mr Gideon. Mr WB steps up onto the carriage to
make a speech, as soon as he starts to thank everyone Mr Gideon politely informs him that he is not the
winner, the Robins house has the best display. At this point the villagers Mr Witzer turns up with all the
presents in a sack, Mr Parsley offers to drive him round to take the presents back, he asks the Robins if
they want the holiday or the money, they choose the money, he writes them a cheque. The villagers start
to celebrate and burst into singing lights, lights, lights, everyone's dancing, singing and happy.

The children are told they must go to bed after a long day and much excitement, they're not tired though
and are too awake to sleep. Santa says, "now children, listen to your father, go to bed like good children
and Santa will reward you (he winks)." The children run inside to go to bed. Mr WB is telling his family
he's sorry about losing the competition, his family want to know what they're going to do for Christmas
now, the Robins overhear and invite them over to theirs for Christmas Day. The villagers all go home and
Mr Saint says his goodbye's to the family, they invite him to stay for Christmas Day he has to decline and
tells them how busy he is and that his family needs him.

The kids are tucked up in bed, when they hear a knock at the window. Santa is outside hovering with his
sleigh, he tells them to grab a coat and hat and jump in, he wants them to help him deliver the presents.
The kids are mega excited and jump on board. (Sing: Santastic Sleigh Ride). They reach the north pole
and Santa sees that everything is ready to go he quickly shows the children round the workshop while the
Elves get on with loading the presents into the bottomless sack. Santa has a massive map of the World
which lists every village and every town. The children tell him it's impossible for him to deliver presents to
everyone in just one night (sing: in just one night). They have to get going, Santa is already way behind
schedule. Santa explains that they'll whizz to the East first because the Sun rises here first, then he will
work his way West around the World drinking milk and eating pies that people have left out for him (this
can be illustrated by a map and lines whizzing around to show where they are or just a very fast
forwarded clip of him rushing around.) When they reach England Santa drops the children off at there
house, they are fast asleep. He puts their presents under their tree and waves goodbye.

The children wake in the morning and rush down to see their presents under the tree, Mr and Mrs Robin
are in the kitchen laughing at how excited the children are. They all sit round the tree and open presents.
The WB family arrive and bring a couple of gifts, the family get on really well Mr WB tells the Robin family
how fantastic Las Vegas is, Mr Robin says "Christmas just isn't Christmas unless your at home." (Sing:
Christmas is Better Than Vegas.)

THE END.


NOTES: Mr Witzer wants love for Christmas, he has everything else but has never had a girlfriend. The
village chief of Police could be a good match and lets him off the burglary charge if he agrees to wrap and
return every present. (SONG: Bring Me a Little Love This Year, She Said Yes) (SONG: Lights Lights
Lights, (like a rainbow in the dark, i love the way they sparkle) lead up to when the winner of the lights
comp is announced and everyone's happy the Robin's have won.)

Christmas the Musical - Script


Opening scene, Carol singers singing at the front door "song to be decided", cam pans back and shows
the beautiful village of Winterbottom.

Narration:                    “In the pretty English Village of Winterbottom, children were playing outside in the
                              fresh snow, wrapped up warm in winter coats, hats and mittens, carol singers
                              were singing to open doors, houses were alight with flashing colours, smoke
                              poured out of every chimney in the village, every river and spring was frozen over
                              and skated on if you were brave enough to dare and the world was white all
                              around, Christmas time had finally arrived and everyone in the village was so
                              excited about what this Christmas would bring.”



Postman walks up path to deliver letters, Pip answers the door.


Pip Robin:                    “Hello Mr Badger, thank you for the letters, you must be so busy this time of
                              year.”
Mr Badger:                    “Hello young Pip, yes, very busy but it’s nice to see everyone smile when they
                              get their Christmas cards. You have a merry Christmas now.”
Pip Robin:                    “Merry Christmas to you to Mr Badger, mind how you go, you're getting on a bit
                              now.” (Mr Badger is only about 30 and his face is a picture of surprise after this cheeky comment.)


Pip runs the post into the kitchen where the family are having breakfast. Gives her Dad the morning paper.



Michael Robin:                “Thank you pumpkin face.”
Pip Robin:                    “Daddy, I told you not to call me that, you can call me princess Philippa but I
                              don’t like pumpkin face!”
Michael Robin:                “It’s a cute name sweetheart but princess Philippa it is! Can you hand me
                              the newspaper please missy” (Pip hesitates and gives her Dad a stare & a huff with hands on
                              hips.)
                              "Ah, princess Philippa". (emphasized and curtseying, Nick giggles)
Pip Robin:                    "Daddy, Mummy, while we're on the subject, can I have an Ultimate Spa &
                              Perfume kit for Christmas?" (M and R stare at each other in surprise. Little Nick giggles while
                              eating his egg & soldiers)
Michael Robin:                "Well it's been about 24 hours since you were on that subject yesterday morning.
                              I thought you'd want something more fun than that? Mummy, what do you think?"
Rebecca Robin:                "Well dear, I'm not sure if you're old enough just yet for perfumes and spa kits."
Pip Robin:                    "I'm a tenager Mummy" (Nick bursts out laughing even he knows a ten year old isn't a tenager,
                              his sister gives him an evil)
Rebecca Robin:                "Oh, of course you are darling. (Wry smile) We'll have to see, remember Santa
                      can't bring you everything you ask for."
Pip Robin:            "Oh Mummy, I know Daddy will do everything he can to help Santa bring me the
                      presents I want." (Pip hugs and hangs off of Dads knee, Michael ignores her and lifts the paper
                                         up to block her out then shakes his head to Rebecca)
Michael Robin:        "Christmas Burglar's been burgling again so it seems, will they ever catch
                      him, he's been at it for weeks!"
Nick Robin:           "What's a Christmas Burglar Daddy?"
Michael Robin:        "Well son, (sing: No-one Knows.)
                      He’s a very nasty chap
                      taking this taking that
                      He goes around and steals
                      But he never reveals
                      who he is.
Nick Robin:           "No-one knows?"
Michael Robin:        "No-one knows!
                      Cos he's always on his toes
                      He creeps around at night
                      Finding things that he might like
                      Stealing toys stealing joy
                      This very Christmas he'll destroy
                      He goes around and steals
                      But he never reveals
                      Who he is.
Nick, Pip, Rebecca:   "No-one knows?"
The whole family:     "No-one knows! (the family dance around the kitchen, pan lids as symbols)
                      Cos he's always on his toes
                      He’s a very nasty chap
                      taking this taking that
                      He creeps around at night
                      Finding things that he might like

                      This very Christmas he'll destroy
                      He goes around and steals
                      But he never reveals
                      Who he is.
Pip and Nick          "No-one knows?"
Michael & Rebecca:    "No-one knows!"
The whole family:     "No-one knows!
           No-one knows
           No-one knows
           No-one knows."
Michael:   "I've got to get to work, I need to finish Mr Burtons staircase by New Years Eve.
           Now kids come and give your Dad a big hug to last him all day. When Christmas
           Eve is here tomorrow you know it's one of my three days off a year, so we're
           going to make the most of it and spend every second together."
Rebecca:   "We need to go to, come on children give your Daddy a hug and get your coats
           and shoes on, we're going Christmas shopping."
Pip:       "Daddy can we go skating?"
Michael:   "Of course princess of the ice."
Nick:      "Can we take Ballo to the park?" (Ballo barks and spins round with joy)
Michael:   "We'll take him everywhere with us and kids I don't want to get you too excited
           but I've got a huge surprise for you this year."
Pip:       "What is it Daddy what is it, are we going to the toy store, oh boy I love the toy
           store."
Michael:   "Er no dear, not the toy store."
Pip:       "Disney World?" (Nicks face lights up and he nods with excitement)
Michael:   "Ok, now my surprise might not be so good, you have to wait and see! You'd
           better get on and write your Christmas wish lists to Santa today, the last post will
           be this afternoon."
Nick:      "What is Santa Daddy?"
Michael:   "Oh Nick, you don't know?"
Nick:      "Well I never asked before."
Rebecca:   "I'll tell him dear, in fact (she bends down to Nick) Nick I'll take you to see him today
           you need to go." (Kisses Michael goodbye, you can see they're really in love.)
Nick:      "Take me to see him? Is he in a home like Grandpa" (Nick's very confused)
           (The family all leave the house not answering Nick who's stood there pondering and quickly runs out
           after them shutting the door)
W-B Snr:   "Morning Robins's's, how are we all today, spiffing, good." (Mr WB quoffs and answers
           for them as he's really not interest just attempting to be polite.)
Michael:   "Morning Frederick, the lights display is coming along just fine."
W-B Snr:   "Isn't it, yes you know how much we pride ourselves on our festive lights, we
           want the whole village to notice us, erm the lights I mean notice the lights."
Michael:   "We couldn't miss you, erm the lights sorry we couldn't miss the lights. Have a
           good day sir."
W-B Snr:   "Unrecognisable quoff"
Michael:   "I'm so excited about this Christmas, a year almost seems too long to wait! Bye
                dear" (Mr Robin turns right out of their gate the kids and Mrs Robin turn left into town)
                (Michael Robin sings "Christmas time is here" whilst walking to work.)
                "Christmas carols, Christmas cheer
                Christmas is my favourite time of the year

                Do I hear bells and reindeers hooves
                Could it be Santa up on the roofs?

                (Michael arrives at work his trusty apprentice Robbie is already there.)
Michael cont.   "Morning Robbie, you been waiting long?
Robbie:         "Morning boss, you know me, like to be early."
Michael:        "Let's get warmed up inside, cuppa?"
Robbie:         "Milk one please boss."
                (Mr Robin pops the kettle on and makes tea, whilst it's boiling they talk about the CB.)
Michael:                "Seen the paper today?"
Robbie:                        "Terrible isn't it, all those poor boys and girls having their presents stolen.
                               Tell you what the police need to find this guy before he ruins any else's
                               Christmas."
Michael:                       "Tricky though, the only clue he ever leaves is a black Santa hat, he's
                               just teasing the police, he's too clever for them to catch him."
Robbie:                        "Well I hope you're wrong boss."
Michael:                       "So do I Robbie, I just don't see what they can do to stop him unless he
                               slips up somewhere."


                               (Meanwhile a quarter of a mile away at the local police station a meeting is in progress.)
Superintendent Atnas:          "Right then you worms, shut up, listen up and listen good, we've put up
                               with this Christmas burglar for far too long now unless I'm wrong None of

PC:                            "Superintendent Atnas, we've tried and tried but this burglar can hide."
Superintendent Atnas:          "We've tried, he cried. Well no matter for your trying I've resolved this
                               little crime."
PC:                            "You have sir?"
Superintendent Atnas:          "I have sir! It's bleedinly obvious as to who's been robbin' us. He's poor

PC:                            "Mr Robin sir?" (Atnas nods once) "The nice carpenter fella?"
Superintendent Atnas:          "The carpenter felon, ha ha ha ha. (No one is laughing at his joke he realises and
                               promptly stops.) Well   make it snappy, let's catch this chappy."
                               (The police jump into action, hurrying out of the station start to sing "Catch Him". With
                               sirens on their helmets, they look ridiculous.)
Whole squadron:                " Catch him, catch him, catch him

Superintendent Atnas:   "PC's HALT!" (Atnas thinks he's an army sergeant. The squadron come to a fumbling
                        halt, anything but military like, Atnas looks at them in despair. The police are outside Mr
                        Robins workshop, Atnas lifts a megaphone to speak.) "Mr      Robin, this is the police
                        we know you're in there. If you don't come in we're coming out."
                        (One of the PC's whispered to Atnas that he got that wrong. Atnas clears his throat.)
                        "If you don't come out we're coming in."
                        (Mr Robin, peeps his head out the door very apprehensively.)
                        "That's it yes, yes, yes, yes, come quietly you know you've got no choice
                        in the matter."
Michael:                "What's the problem Superintendent Atnas?"
Superintendent Atnas:   "The problem Mr Robin, is that you've been robbin'!"
                        (The word spreads all the way down the street, each neighbour passes on, "Robin's the
                        Christmas burglar." Word reaches W-B)
Winston-Banks Snr:      "Well I knew it, makes sense that he's the thief, he can hardly afford to
                        brush his teeth."
Michael:                "That's an awful thing to accuse me of, what is your evidence?"
Superintendent Atnas:   "Evidence you ask? Search the premises boys."
                        (The police start to bring out bags and poor them on the street, they are
                        gifts and it doesn't look good for Mr Robin.)
                        "Your evidence, Mr Robin."

Michael:                "I swear, errr I've never, they're not mine."
Superintendent Atnas:   "No they're not yours Mr Robin, officers take him down town."

                        (Meanwhile, blissfully unaware to what's been going on, Mrs Robin has taken the kids
                        shopping and Nick is going to meet Santa for the first time. Whilst walking along the shops
                        Pip is pointing out what she wants for Christmas.)
Pip:                    "I want that Mummy and that, that would be good, that's not high up on
                        my list but I want it anyway. Mummy are you noting this down"
Rebecca:                "Yes, of course dear, is that all you want?"
Pip:                    "Wellll!? I'm sure there's more."
Rebecca:                "I'm sure there is, you'll have to put it on your list to Santa."
Nick:                   "Where is Mr Santa Mummy?"
Rebecca:                "Just over there sweetheart, in Santas grotto, come along let's go and
                        get in the queue to meet him."
Nick:                   (Whilst queuing Nick starts to question who this man is, he sings his own thoughts to
                        himself. Sing: "Who's This Silly Old Man")


                        "Who’s this silly old man
                        Children all like to sit on his knee
                        I don’t know what’s going on he’s just a stranger to me
                        A funny red suit and a pure white long beard
                        Isn't anyone else finding this very weird

                        Who’s this silly old man
                        The other kids love him
                        But I don’t know why
                        Last year this old man I remember he made me cry
                        I think perhaps that I’m warming to him
                        His smile is infectious that sweet charming grin

                        This man is so scary but also so nice
                        I’m so confused I need some advice
                        “Mummy”, I said, “Who’s this silly old man?
                        Everyone seems to be his biggest fan!”

                        She laughed out loud hysterically
                        I’m more confused, why’s she laughing at me
                        Then she said something I’ll never forget
                        This is what she said."

Rebecca:                "This is Santa Claus, he brings toys he brings joy
                        He’s the very reason we’re all happy my boy
                        Just once a year he gets on his sleigh
                        Gifts for the whole world just for Christmas Day

                        The elves make the toys for the girls and the boys
                        The elves work for fun they don’t stop til they’re done
                            If this sounds amazing it’s not yet the best bit
                            For this you’d better sit (Nick sits crossed legged on the floor listening attentively).

                            To make sure all of the good boys and girls
                            Receive all their presents all over the world
                            Santa needs help from the most wondrous of things
                            He’s got eight special reindeer who fly without wings."



Santa (not the real one):   "Hello boy and what's your name?"
Nick:                       "Hello Santa, I'm Nick."
Santa (not the real one):   "Hoho a fine name for a fine boy. Short for Nicholas no doubt? (Nick nods)
                            Well young Nick, let me tell you a little secret, Nicholas is my name to."
Nick:                       "Mummy he's not Santa?" (Nick shouts out. Catching everyone's attention.)
Santa (not the real one):   "Hoho, yes I am little one but my proper name is Saint Nicholas, Santa
                            Claus is kind of my nickname."
Nick:                       "Oh I see, did the children at your school call you 'no-pants' too?"
Santa (not the real one):   "Er no, why would they?"
Nick:                       "Because you're called knicker less? Like you haven't got any knickers
                            on but your a boy like me so they say pants instead."
Santa (not the real one):   "Dear oh dear, what wonderful imagination children have. Come young
                            Nick, what would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?"
Nick:                       "Well I don't really need anything, perhaps you could ask Mummy not to
                            make me eat sprouts this year." (Nick sticks his fingers in his mouth.)
Santa (not the real one):   "Hohoho, well maybe some extra carrots instead. Just remember to be
                            good and good thing's will happen to you. Good bye young Nick, I'll see
                            you next year."
Nick:                       "Good bye Santa." (Nick gives him a big hug.)
                            (Rebecca finishes singing Who is this silly old man.)
Rebecca:                    "So remember my child he’s no silly old man
                            He’s a saviour a saint from New York to Japan
                            Say your goodbyes you’ll see Santa next year
                            Don’t be upset son wipe away your tear
                            Say your goodbyes you'll see Santa next year"
                            (The kids walk away waving bye to Santa, just opposite Mr Witzer is making an
                            announcement.)
Pip:                        "Look Mummy, there's Mr Witzer the richest man in the village it's the
                            beginning of this years Christmas lights competition."
Mr Witzer:                  "Hear ye, hear ye, Christmas time it be. That means time of pure delights
                            and a competition in the name of lights. It's time to start our village
                 contest as if you've forgetten, it is of course the famous Christmas Lights
                 of Winterbottom. The one who astounds me the most out of any, wins
                 Christmas in Las Vegas or a million a penny. Choose the flash or choose
                 the cash the choice is all but yours. Remember this and don't remiss, you
                 can only win if you truly believe I will pick the winner come Christmas
                 eve."
Pip:             "Oh, can we enter and decorate our house this year please Mummy can
                 we enter?"
Rebecca:         "Now you know we can't afford to enter and the Winston Banks family
                 would just out do us anyway sweetheart."
Pip:             "But, we've never been on holiday and Hetty Winston-Banks brags every
                 year about winning the Christmas lights competition and going to Las
                 Vegas the magnificent city of lights."
Rebecca:         "I know it's hard, I'm sorry we can't do everything other families do."
Nick:            (Nick tugs at his Mums dress.)   "Mummy, it looks like everyone is looking at us."


                 (Rebecca and the kids all of a sudden become grossly aware that everyone is staring at
                 them. Rebecca sees a good friend and calls her over. Mrs Goldfinch speeds off into
                 conversation.)


Mrs Goldfinch:   "Hello Rebecca, I'm so sorry to hear about Michael, it must be dreadful
                 what with it being Christmas and I suppose you don't know what's going
                 to happen, you know not just to the relationship but it must be very
                 unsettling for the kids as well and as for the business well..."
                 (Rebecca interrupted at this point)


Rebecca:         "Mrs Goldfinch I haven't the foggiest idea what you're talking about!"
Mrs Goldfinch:   "You mean, you don't know!?"
Rebecca:         "Know what?"
Mrs Goldfinch:   "Oh, you don't know!?"
Rebecca:         "Know what?"
Mrs Goldfinch:   "Oh you don't know, she doesn't know, well er perhaps I'll, you'd
                 better." (Mrs Goldfinch is extremely nervous, she doesn't want to be the one to deliver the
                 bad news.)
Rebecca:         "MRS GOLDFINCH PLEASE!?" (Rebecca had had enough and loses it.)
Mrs Goldfinch:   "Michaels been arrested." (She said in slow soft tone.)
Rebecca:         "What!?"
Mrs Goldfinch:   "I'm sorry Rebecca, he is the Christmas Burglar."
Rebecca:         "Come on children."
Pip:                    "Where are we going Mummy?"
Rebecca:                "To the police station." (She is feeling angry, upset and confused.)


PC Barry Parry:         "Ahh, good afternoon Mrs Robin, we's been expecting you to pop in."
Rebecca:                "No it isn't a good afternoon PC Parry, now where is Michael."
PC Barry Parry:         "Cell 3, I'll get the super down and see if you're allowed to see him."
Rebecca:                "See if I'm allowed to see him? Why wouldn't I be!?"
PC Barry Parry:         (PC Parry holds his finger up without answering.)   "Got someone to see you here
                        sir. Yes that's right. He'll be right down Mrs Robin."
                        (No sooner had PC Parry finished his sentence Atnas entered.)
Rebecca:                "You've got a lot of explaining to do Superintendent!"
Superintendent Atnas:   "Explain I can Rebecca, may I call you Rebecca? (Doesn't wait for a
                        response.)   You see Mr Robin is a nice enough man on the outside,
                        he shows love he takes pride. But when you delve to the underneath he's
                        nothing but a common thief. The poor children unsuspecting, fast asleep
                        while your husband's selecting which house to rob what family comes
                        next wake up in the morn gifts gone and perplexed. He wouldn't have
                        stopped til he got them all, your husband Mrs Robin makes my skin
                        crawl. (PAUSE) Did you notice anything amiss or perhaps what we have is
                        a loving accomplice."
Rebecca:                (Rebecca shakes her head in disgust with the man.)    "My husband would never do
                        anything of the sort, he's a decent kind man who works harder than
                        anyone to provide for his family. I want to see him, I demand to see him."
Superintendent Atnas:   "You're in no position to be making demands Mrs Robin, I give the orders
                        around here. I will allow you to see him for 30 seconds only, no I'm
                        feeling generous have 40 seconds, ha ha. Come with me. PC Parry fetch
                        Mr Robin and bring him into the interview room. Cuff him will you, we
                        don't want anyone getting any funny ideas."
                        (Mrs Robin and the children wait in the interview room, PC Parry brings in Mr Robin. He
                        looks sad, ashamed and scared.)
PC Barry Parry:         "40 seconds from now then."
Michael:                "Oh Rebecca, children, I'm so pleased to see you. I haven't done
                        anything I swear, I've been set-up. You know I would never..."
Rebecca:                "Shhhhh I know darling, I know you have done nothing wrong, I don't
                        know how we'll get you out of this mess but we will. I promise."
Michael:                "Oh kids, your old man's really let you down, I'm so sorry. I was so
                        looking forward to spending Christmas with you, now I'm going to be
                        locked away in a cell. I love you all so very much."
Nick:                     "We love you to Daddy, don't worry we'll get you escaped."
Michael:                  "You need to try and enjoy Christmas, just imagine I'm there whatever
                          you're doing. I'll be thinking of you all. I'm sorry."
                          (Big family embrace a couple of tears from Pip who's too upset to speak.)
PC Barry Parry:           "Time's up."
Michael:                  "Kids, don't forget your lists to Santa, make sure they get sent today!"

                          (The family arrive home minus a Dad, they see the WB family still working on their lights
                          display.)


Mrs Winston-Banks:        "Oh hello dear, you must be feeling terrible, let me come in and make
                          you some tea."
W-B KIDS AND ROBIN KIDS CHAT, TBA.
Rebecca:                  "Thank you Jennifer I could do with a cuppa and some company.
                          Children, get on inside and write your lists to Santa."
Pip:                      "My list is done, I don't feel like asking for anything else at the moment."
Rebecca:                  "Can you help Nick write his?"
Pip:                      "Come on Nick, we can use some of my writing paper. You talk, I'll write"
                          (The kids run upstairs. Whilst Rebecca and Jennifer go to the kitchen for tea.)
Nick:                     "I don't really feel like having Christmas at the moment."
Pip:                      "Come on Nick, you can't cancel Christmas, only Santa could do that."
Nick:                     "That's it! Sister you are a genus!"
Pip:                      "Well I surprise myself sometimes."
Nick:                     "We'll ask Santa to come and get Daddy out of jail and help us find the
                          real Christmas burglar."
Pip:                      "What? We can't do that, Santa will be far too busy to come and help us."
Nick:                     "It's our only hope, write this down.
                          (Pip writes down what Nick says, and scribbles out what he changes. Nick sings "My
                          Christmas Dream")
                          Santa, no wait... Dear Santa, hmmm not quite right...

                          To Mr Santa Claus,
                          Can you make my Christmas dream come true
                          I've finished all my chores
                          Now I'm writing to you

                          My Daddys got himself in trouble but he did no wrong
                          In his cell growing stubble but he don't belong
                          Cos there's this man you see
                          Who's on a stealing spree
                          All the kids presents meant for Christmas Day
                          All disappearing but there's just no way
                          it was my Daddy
                          no no way
                     It was my Daddy
                     He's not the baddy
                     And he's been put away

                     Me and my Mother are so sad
                     I can see it in her eyes
                     Everything taken what we had
                     Our life destroyed by lies

                     Dear Mr Santa Claus
                     Can you make my Christmas dream come true
                     The only present of yours
                     That I need is your presence and a miracle from you

                     I don't want a Nintendo
                     I don't even want a new football
                     Don't want any game or any thing at all
                     This year,

                     The only thing that I need
                     Which I'm writing to you to plead
                     I want my Daddy home
                     Just need my Daddy home

                     Bad Santa's still on the run
                     Ruining Christmas for everyone
                     Please Santa say you'll come
                     This is my Christmas Dream
                     This is my Christmas Dream."

                     (The kids run downstairs to tell their mother they're all done.)

Pip:                 "Mummy, we're done, we're done, we'll get our shoes on to go to the post
                     office." (The kids are excited at the prospect of Santa coming to help them.)
Rebecca:             "Ok, ok, let's go. Jennifer thanks for coming over we've got to go and
                     deliver some letters to Santa and urgently by the looks of things."
Mrs Winston-Banks:   "Any time dear, you know where I am if you need me."
                     (Outside a customer of Mr Robin's has just arrived.)
Mr Burton:           "Mrs Robin, I've just come over to tell you I'm cancelling my order with
                     your husband, I'll have someone else make my staircase, I can't be seen
                     to be associated with your sort."
                     (Mr Burton storms off before Rebecca can reply or retaliate.)
Rebecca:             "Oh dear, oh dear oh dear. Poor Michael, all that work and nothing for it."
Pip:                 "Are you alright Mummy?"
Rebecca:             "Not really dear, we were relying on that money, without it thing's will be
                     tighter than usual."
Mr Winston-Banks:    "Sorry to hear about that Mrs Robin, you'll still be able to make your loan
                     payment to me this month will you? It's due in 4 days as a little
                     reminder."
Rebecca:            "Thank you for your reminder, it's just what I need right now."
Mr Winston-Banks:   "Just enquiring that it'll be paid on time, your home is at risk if payments
                    are not upheld in a timely manner."
Rebecca:            "Mr Winston-Banks, really, is money all you think about."
Mr Winston-Banks:   "What else is there to think about?" (He responded with all sincerity.)
Rebecca:            "Really Mr Winston-Banks, you ought to be ashamed of yourself for
                    being such a money mad fat cat! Let's go and deliver these letters before
                    we miss last post."
                    (Mr W-B follows the Robin family and sings "I'm A Wealthy Man". Nick starts to join in
                    dancing his Mum pulls him back. Mr WB's Mum appears out of nowhere when he sings
                    about selling her, dancing and looking all happy that she's for sale.)


                    He's a fat cat he's money mad                       (sung by villagers who dance alongside)
                    Doesn't care for life it's so so sad
                    He's a fat cat, a fat cat,
                    He's a fat cat, a fat cat

Mr Winston-Banks:   They call me a fat cat
                    I don't really mind that
                    I've really got a lot of cash
                    And I'm very proud of my moustache

                    It's true what they say by all accounts
                    In interest alone I earn very large amounts

                    Christmas time means cheques for me
                    Forget about Christianity
                    A big boastful bonus gives me everything I need
                    It's the only gift I get that can satisfy my greed
                    Some people want love I want money
                    Their World can be unhappy but mines always sunny

                    I love to work it's what I do
                    It puts money in my bank and I'm richer than you
                    I'd sell my mother given half the chance
                    She can cook, clean, sing and likes to dance
                    When people hear me say this they say it's just plain meanness
                    I tell them all the same thing and say it's just good business

                    I wouldn't say I miss them as such

                           My daughter cries her eyes out because I don't read her school reports
                           But I'm a wonderful father, probably the best
                           I give them everything money can buy, they ought to think they're

Rebecca:                   "Thank you Frederick?" (Rebecca says with a sarcastic tone.)
Mr Winston-Banks:          "You're welcome Mrs Robin." (Mr W-B skips off humming the tune.)
Mr Badger (the postman):   "Got some letters there have we?"
Rebecca:                   "Yes, children give your letters to Mr Badger."
Mr Badger:                 "Very lucky, this is the last post of Christmas."
Nick:                      (Goes to give his mail to the postman then hesitates) "Can you
                           guarantee me this letter will get to this address?"
Mr Badger:                 "Santa Claus, The North Pole. (He looks at Mrs Robin for a lifeline, she shrugs.)
                           Well Master Robin it's cutting it fine this close to Christmas."
Nick:                      "Please Mr Badger it's a very important letter."
Pip:                       "A very very important letter."
Mr Badger:                 "I can see that, I'll tell you what I give you my word that this letter will be
                           on Santas desk by morning. How's that for you?"
Nick & Pip:                "Thank you Mr Badger, that means everything to us."
Mr Badger:                 "Ok kids, have a great Christmas, I hope Santa brings you everything on
                           your list."
Rebecca:                   (Winks at Mr Badger as a thank you.)   "Thank you Mr Badger, say
                           goodbye children."
Nick:                      "Goodbye children." (Nick laughs at his own joke. Even Pip giggles, they wave
                           goodbye)



Mr Badger:                 "These letters would never reach the North Pole in time, poor kids." (Mr
                           Badger, takes the mail inside, throws the children's letter to Santa into a bag marked
                           'LATE MAIL' which is swiftly thrown out the back door, mail spills and there are hundreds
                           of letters to Santa Time passes quickly, early evening darkness comes and all of a sudden
                           some Elves come out of nowhere.)
Elf Woz:                   "Aurora squadron, secure the area." (They move with military precision.)
Elf Lert:                  "All clear sir."
Elf Woz:                   "Right men, let's get the last of the mail and we're back home for a well
                           earned rest. Let's hope the welcoming committee are on good form."
                           (The Elves gather the mail, load it into their bag and shoot off on Husky puppies that are
            half real half light. We follow them on their quick journey home to the North Pole the sky is
            alight with aurora borealis.)


Elf Sned:   "Ready... incoming. Catch catch catch." (He shouts loud and clear.)
            (Aurora squadron come to a screeching stop, there is a welcoming party of Elves to help as
            when you travel by light you go dizzy and doolaly if your not caught quick you whiz around
            all over he place, it's not easy to catch a doolally dizzy elf. The elves try to catch Aurora
            squadron before they go into a spin but some whizz around. They sing "dizzy doolally"
            whilst amidst the mayhem as they comedically try to catch the whizzing Elves.)
Elves:      "Dizzy doolally, dizzy doolally
            doolally dizzy, doolally dizzy
            catch an elf before he hurts himself
            he's gone doolally dizzy poor little elf
            Dizzy doolally, dizzy doolally
            doolally dizzy, doolally dizzy
            travelling by light no good for your health
            watch him go whizzy poor little elf
            Dizzy doolally, dizzy doolally
            doolally dizzy, doolally dizzy
            catch an elf before he hurts himself
            he's gone doolally dizzy poor little elf
            Dizzy doolally, dizzy doolally
            doolally dizzy, doolally dizzy
            travelling by light no good for your health
            watch him go whizzy poor little elf
            Dizzy doolally, dizzy doolally
            doolally dizzy, doolally dizzy."

            (Santa comes out, to see that all is well, greeted by a scene of chaos, Elves diving all over
            the place trying to catch one more whizzing Elf.)
Santa:      "Get him Elf Sned, get him! Elf Mort, right behind you, ho ho ho good
            job all round Elves. Help yourselves to a hot cup of candy tea, Elf Woz
            when you've stopped whizzing bring in the last of the mail, lots to be
            done." (Mrs Claus is holding a tray of lovely looking cups of tea with candy sticks in.)
Elf Woz:    "Yes, sir, whoa!" (He is released to salute but spins and falls flat on his back.)
Elf Sned:   "Elf Woz, would you like me to take the mail in."
Elf Woz:    "Thank you Elf Sned, I'll be able to help in a few moments. In fact I think
            I'm okaaaaaaaaay" (As he tries to get up he somersaults with a spectacular face
            plant in the snow.)


            (We follow Santa in through the most beautiful hand crafted wooden doors, the elves inside
                are busy making toys. They sing whilst they work, "The Santa Song".)
The Elves:      " He's slightly overweight and more
                When he's asleep he slighty snores
                He's the loverly loverly loverly loverly loverly Santa Claus

Santa:          "All day, everyday. Oh I hate that song," (Santa proclaims to Mrs Claus.)
Mrs Claus:      "It keeps them happy dear and you know what they say, a happy elf is a
                happy elf!" (Santa smiles and kisses Mrs Claus on the forehead.)
Elf Sned:       "Your mail Santa."
Santa:          "Thank you Elf Sned, take it into my study."
                (Santa sits down to go through the mail he types everything in and we see the elves
                working and singing away double quick. Santa comes to Philippa Robins letter, reads it out
                and enters it into Cyber Santa, he's very tired after Pips big list, he reads the beginning of
                his next letter and starts to drop off.)
Santa cont.     "To Mr Santa Claus... can you, can you...."
                (He yawns and he's out like a light. Santa begins to dream, it's a wonderful family having
                fun and enjoying being with each other, then he sees a woman curled up on her own and
                crying and a Man standing by himself and staring up at the sky out of a barred window, he
                sees a playground full of children that are having so much fun except for one boy who has
                all the sadness in the World upon his face, Santa's emotions send him into sweats of
                despair he awakes reads the letter and instantly realises the letter he holds in his hands is
                the once perfect family he just dreamt of in turmoil. He feels he must help at all cost. He
                rushes to see Mrs Claus.)
Santa cont...   "Mrs Claus, I have to leave tonight."
Mrs Claus:   "Oh Nicholas, not another crusade?"
Santa:       "A family need my help." (He's rushing around getting ready.)
Mrs Claus:   "But on Christmas Eve?"
Santa:       "A good family need my help!"
Mrs Claus:   "Can the reindeer take so much travelling before the big night?"
Santa:       "I'll ride them slowly tonight so as not to wear them out. Don't worry dear
             I wouldn't do this if it jeopardised everyone else's Christmas, the elves
             are perfectly capable of dealing with everything in an emergency."
Mrs Claus:   "I know you know best dear but can you really help this family." (Hug and
             kiss.)
Santa:       "I have to try, thank you muffin, I'll be back before you know it."
             (Santa goes to the workshop to tell the elves.)
             "Listen up my hard little workers, you to Elf Krot my friend, I have
             something to say and I'll not pretend. I'm going away now, I'll leave on
             the hour, I entrust in you all my faith and my power. Elf Woz, wake the
             reindeer and get them well fed, make sure that Prancer is out of his bed.
             A boy needs my help, he's far far away, it's a story of betrayal and
             dishonourable foul play. If I don't return in time for deliverance, you my
             friends will become the contingence. You know all the routes, you know
             them well, now my good friends I wish you a happy noel."
             (The elves are shocked, they can't believe their ears, the crowd of elves mutter and voice
             their concerns to each other.)
Elf Sned:    "Santa I'm not sure we can, what I mean is I don't know if..."
             (Santa walks to the Reindeer stable where Elf Woz has them ready. Elf Sned follows
             and he and Santa talk.)
Santa:       "Elf Sned, you're in charge now, it's a great deal of responsibility are you
             up to it?"
Elf Sned:    "Er, I, we, well the thing is."
Santa:       "I have a family torn to pieces that only I can save, would you rather I
             forgot about them and stayed because you weren't able to take on this
             much work and responsibility?"
Elf Sned:    "When you put it like that, of course Santa, you can trust us with
             everything."
Santa:       "That means a lot, good elf, make sure everyone is pulling their weight,
             we can't fall behind on the last of the toys we need to make."
Elf Sned:    "Good luck Santa, if you need us at all, just call."
Santa:       "I'll be sure to. Elf Sned?"
Elf Sned:    "Yes Santa?"
Santa:       "Thank you." (Elf Sned smiles and bows whilst he retreats to the workshop.)
              "Right then, my beloved reindeer we're off for a little adventure. (The
              Reindeer can talk but only the Elves and Santa can understand them.)      Yes I know it's
              Christmas eve tomorrow and we're very busy, don't you start, Mrs Claus
              has already tried to put me off. Yes I know she's always right but if
              everyone did the right thing all the time life would be very boring wouldn't
              it Prancer? Anyway, as I was saying we're off for a little adventure and I
              need you all to be on top of your game, work together, fly as a team, it's
              a big ask to fly so far before we've even left for Christmas Eve delivery,
              we aren't flying with presents tonight so three of you can stay and get
              extra rest, Vixen, Comet and Cupid you stay, we'll need you more than
              ever tomorrow night. I know we can do it, now do any of you wish to
              raise any concerns?"
              (Santa looks around for any response, one of the reindeer farts, they all laugh apart from
              the deer who had it right in his face who is squirming trying to escape the smell.)
Santa cont:   "I'll take that as a no! Are you ready... let's go boys."
              (The reindeer burst into flight, Santa let's out a big ho ho ho.)


              (Back at the Robin household, the kids are anxious.)
Nick:         "Pip, I can't sleep can I come in here with you?"
Pip:          "I can't sleep either, come on then." (Nick climbs into bed.)
Nick:         "Do you think Santa is coming?"
Pip:          "I hope so!"
Nick:         "What will happen to Daddy if we can't help him?"
Pip:          "I really don't know, I miss him so much already, I can't imagine what it
              would be like if he was..." (She can't finish her sentence.)
Nick:         "It's ok sis, Daddy will be alright." (The door opens, it's Rebecca checking
              they are ok.)
Rebecca:      "Are you ok guys?"
Nick:         "We can't sleep Mummy."
Rebecca:      "Oh come now, don't worry yourselves, remember what Daddy said, just
              imagine that he is here doing everything with us." (Rebecca get's into bed with
              the kids.)
Pip:          "He's not here."

              (Rebecca sings the children to sleep. Sing "Sleep")
Rebecca:      "When there's something on your mind
              and you lay there wide awake
              Sometimes you might find
              the reason why your heart does ache

              minute after minute
                  hour after hour
                  You lay there in silence
                  Your thoughts turn ever sour

                  You give-up on yourself
                  Your eyes are oh so tired
                  And eventually you start to fall asleep

                  Sleep, sleep
                  Sleep just like a baby
                  Sleep, sleep,
                  What will your next day be
                  Sleep, sleep
                  Sleep and dream my baby
                  Sleep sleep
                  Sleep away your wicked misery
                  When there's something on your mind
                  and you lay there wide awake
                  Sometimes you might find
                  the reason why your heart does ache

                  minute after minute
                  hour after hour
                  You lay there in silence
                  Your thoughts turn ever sour

                  You give-up on yourself
                  Your eyes are oh so tired
                  And eventually you start to fall asleep

                  Sleep, sleep
                  Sleep just like a baby
                  Sleep, sleep,
                  What will your next day be
                  Sleep, sleep
                  Sleep and dream my baby
                  Sleep sleep
                  Sleep away your wicked misery."


                  (Morning comes to Winterbottom. It's a beautiful sunrise over a frosty
                  landscape.)


PC Barry Parry:   "Breakfast Robin, nice hot cup of tea." (PC Parry opens the door and brings in
                  breakfast.)
Michael:          "Thank you Barry, I'm starving."
PC Barry Parry:   "How are you bearing up in here?"
Michael:          "What can you do, trying to stay strong. It's a strange Christmas present
                  I'll tell you that much."
PC Barry Parry:   "I need to tell you something, it might get me in trouble so I need you to
                  keep it to yourself but I don't think you've done what Superintendent
                  Atnas has accused of. I just can't see it, nice family fella like you,
                  wonderful kids, wonderful wife, you've got everything a man would want
                  it wouldn't make any sense for you to be going out robbing!"
Michael:          "That means a lot Barry, I just wish I could get out and see my family. Is
                  there any way you can help me see them?"
PC Barry Parry:   "No can do Mr Robin, I'd get fired, under strict instructions not to let
                  anyone see you. Must be getting off now, don't go going anywhere,
                  sorry, bad joke!" (Michael smirks as if he wants to laugh but he can't. PC Parry closes
                  the door and Michael sings: "Christmas Criminal".)


Michael:          " Christmas Lock Up
                  I've been stitched up
                  I'm not guilty
                  Please believe me
                  And I don't know what's happening
                  Cos no ones told me anything

                  I'm Sitting in my cell at Christmas time
                  Falsely accused there was no crime
                  I Feel like I’m in hell this Christmas
                  Jail wasn't on my wish list

                  I’ll break out of this cage, can’t go to prison
                  Not at my age but no-one will listen
                  Merriment and joy not for me
                  Just burnt pie and misery

                  Christmas Lock Up
                  I've been stitched up
                  I'm not guilty
                  Please believe me
                  And I don't know what's happening
                  Cos no ones told me anything"


Michael cont:     (Michael is racking his brain on how to get out, it seems impossible.)   "This is
                  impossible, how am I ever going to get out! (He stands up on his bench to
                  look out of his barred window, he sees something flying across the sky.) What       was
                  that!?"


                  (Santa lands his sleigh in a field nearby to Winterbottom.)
Santa:            "Yes Blitzen I know I can't walk around like this, too many people would
                  recognise me. (Santa spins and his clothes have changed.) Now then,
                  what or who will I be to help out the Robins, I can't just stroll up and say I
                  want to help them? A suggestion from everyone please! A snow clearer
                  Blitzen, could work. A social worker hey Dasher, ok. A dancer? Dancer
                  you are a silly reindeer. An undercover policeman, Prancer good
                  thinking. A long lost cousin, not bad Donner. Rudolph any ideas? Don't
           be shy no answer is silly, except for Dancers of course! Oh Rudolph
           that's perfect and it's just what they need, well done my boy. I'll be a
           lawyer. Ok, no time to waste, you all stay here, there's a spring over
           there for water and plenty of plants around to eat, get your rest and I'll be
           back soon."
           (Santa walks (humming the tune to HoHoHome We Go) along a country road, a sign says
           "Winterbottom 1/2 mile" and he soon gets to the village where he waves and says hello to
           all the kids...)
Santa:     "Hello Thomas, be good now. Jessica, lovely to see you, sorry for the
           fright I gave you last Christmas Eve. Daniel, very proud of you this year."
Parent:    "Do you know that man Daniel?"
Daniel:    "Sure, that's Santa Dad, don't you know him?"
Parent:    "Hey, how do you know my boy?"
Santa:     "I know everything about everyone's children Mr Newman and I haven't
           forgotten about what you did to the Blackworthy's cat." (The parent is left
           dumbfounded and the young boy is shaking his head at his Dad. Santa arrives at the
           Robins house and knocks on the door.)
Rebecca:   "Hello." (Said a tired looking red-eyed Mrs Robin.)
Santa:     "May I come in Mrs Robin, it's about your husband."
Rebecca:   "Is he ok?"
Santa:     "I want to help him, may I come in?"
Rebecca:   "Yes of course, please, can I get you a drink of anything?"
Santa:     "No, I'm just fine thank you."
Rebecca:   "Please take a seat, now how do you think you can help?"
Santa:     "I'm a lawyer, I heard about your husband and I don't believe that
           Michael is capable of such a menacing act."
Rebecca:   "Do you know Michael? Actually, do I know you, you look very familiar.
           I'm sorry, we can't afford a lawyer, we live in a nice house but we
           inherited it from Michael's father and have very little money."
Santa:     "You've probably seen me around, I feel like a know Michael, I've heard
           a lot about him. I don't need any money Mrs Robin, it's Christmas eve
           and I think I can get Michael out by tomorrow if not today."
Rebecca:   "You really think that's possible, oh sir, I'm sorry what's you're name?"
Santa:     "It's er, well I'm, it's Mr Saint."
Rebecca:   "Thank you Mr Saint, this is wonderful news."
Santa:     "You look tired my dear, have you not had much rest recently."
Rebecca:   "It's been difficult, the kids are so upset and I miss Michael and..."
Santa:     "Shhhhh, you can sleep now my child, leave everything to me."
           (Santa blows sleepy dust on Rebecca with his Shhhhh, she falls asleep instantly with a
              smile on her face as if the burden of the World has been lifted from her shoulders. Santa
              lies her down and covers her with a blanket. He wants to find the kids and get on with
              saving Mr Robin.)
Santa cont.   "Nicholas, Philippa!? (He calls upstairs. There's no reply, he calls again taking a
              couple steps up.) Nicholas,   Philippa!? (Again, there's no answer. He stands still and
              listens, he hears children in the distance. He turned to look outside through the back door
              and there were the children building a snowman in the garden. He goes out the back door.)
              Children! We have some very important work to be done."
Pip:          "Nick, get behind me. Don't move Mr, who are you and what do you
              want?"
Nick:         "Santa Claus (Nick whispered to himself.) SANTA, YOU CAME! Sis don't you
              see, it's Santa he's come to rescue Daddy."
Pip:          "Stay right there Nick. (Nick was off until Pip grabbed his hood and stopped him.)
              How do we know you're Santa Claus? Prove it!"
Santa:        "Well I suppose it's a fair question Philippa Lindsay Robin, born on
              24/02/2001 if I told you that this year you wrote to me and asked for an i-
              pod, an i-phone, music gift vouchers, pink trainers, a digital camera, a
              clarinet, a new hairbrush, mini hair straighteners so you could hide them
              easily, a sparkly purse, the biggest bar of chocolate in the world, an
              ultimate spa and perfume kit, a trampoline because everyone else in the
              village has one and a kiss from a nice boy; would you believe me?"
              (Nick was standing there nodding and smiling, looking a bit disappointed that his sister
              needed proof it was Santa.)
Pip:          "Ha, I did not ask for a kiss from any boy!"
Santa:        "Yes you did!"
Pip:          "No I didn't!"
Santa:        "No you didn't!"
Pip:          "Yes I did! (Nick is laughing at his sisters embarrassment.) Oh how annoying, ok I
              believe you but where is your red suit?."
Santa:        "I had to tell your mother I was a lawyer who was going to help your
              father, I couldn't turn up as Santa she would have told me to get back to
              making the toys for all the other children."
Nick:         "What's our first move to save Daddy then Santa?"
Santa:        " Firstly we must go to the Police Station to see if we can talk to your
              father."
Nick:         "Shall we tell mother first?"
Santa:        "No, young Nicholas, parents don't understand adventure, they're too
              sensible and look your Mother has fallen asleep."
Pip:          "We'll leave her a note then!"
Santa:                             "There's no time, come on we need to leave now."




Christmas The Musical Song List


Its A Peaceful World – Choir song, opening song

Peaceful people
All over the World
Come together

Peaceful winter
Love is all around
Lord of angels
Jesus Christ was crowned

Christmas wishes sent with love
And joy spread all around
Christmas a gift from above
The Christmas bells do sound

People singing

Children playing in the snow
Cold as ice their cheeks a glow
Children laughing brings delight
Memories of a Christmas night

It's a peaceful World at Christmas time
It's a peaceful World it's yours and mine
It's a peaceful World
It's a peaceful World
It's a peaceful World at Christmas Time
Snow So White - when sung by Pip she's in her Pyjamas in her bedroom but cuts to her out in the snow
twirling around.

The World is dark
And there's something going on outside
The angels hark
Hear you pray for snow this one yuletide

So very cold
Ice is forming right outside your window
And snow foretold
Just listen to that howling wind blow

Tucked up in your bed
Thinking of gifts and Christmas day
So much fun ahead
The sheep your counting jump away

Drift into a dream
Imagining just what will be
All is well it seems
A sleep so deep you feel so free

Then when morning comes
There's a funny feeling that all is quiet
Your heart beat drums
There's something different you just know it

You rush out of bed pull back the curtain
Rub your eyes so you know for certain
Is it true or am I dreaming
Can't believe just what I'm seeing

There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled
There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled
There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled
It's oh so white
And it's covered the World
Oh so white
Snow so white

The World is dark
So very cold
The angels hark
And snow foretold
Tucked up in your bed
Drift into a dream
So much fun ahead
All is well it seems
Then when morning comes
You rush out of bed
Your heart beat drums

There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled

There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled
There's snow so white
And it's covered the World
Fell on Christmas night
So happy I twirled
It's oh so white
And it's covered the World
Oh so white
Snow so white

Christmas time is here - more traditional slow Christmas song, Mr Robin sings this on his way to work.

Christmas carols, Christmas cheer
Christmas is my favourite time of the year
Christmas trees and Christmas gifts
Christmas time brings snowy drifts

God bless little baby Jesus
He gave us the gift of Christmas

It’s been almost another year
Christmas time is heeeeeeeere
Yes Christmas time is here

Children wrapped up nice and warm
Smiling as the choirs perform
Christmas is special, bringing peace to all
Excitement heightens upon nightfall

Do I hear bells and reindeers hooves
Could it be Santa up on the roofs?

It’s been almost another year
Christmas time is heeeeeeeere
Yes Christmas time is here

The grass turns white in the morning frostbite
The trees shiver in the cold
At Christmas time I like to sit by the fire
I must be getting old

Christmas is all about the ones you love
Give the gift of time to those you haven’t seen much of

It’s been almost another year
Christmas time is heeeeeeeere
Yes Christmas time is here
Catch Him - Police song about catching the Christmas criminal, sung when they march through the
village to apprehend their suspect.


Catch him, catch him, catch him
We’re gonna catch him, catch him, catch him

We’re gonna catch this guy
We’re gonna put him away
We’re gonna find our man
We’re gonna make him pay

We’re gonna get this wrapped up for Christmas
No stopping til we’re done
We’re gonna get this wrapped up for Christmas
Catch the bad man on the run

He’s upset too many kids
He's struck too many times
He's stolen too many presents
Committed too many crimes

We’ll knock on every door if we have to
Check every joint around town
There’s only one thing we can promise you
This guys about to go down

Catch him, catch him, catch him
We’re gonna catch him, catch him, catch him

A dangerous man out on the loose
Clever and silent so what's the use
We'll need to work together
To catch this fella

We’re gonna catch this guy
We’re gonna put him away
We’re gonna find our man
We’re gonna make him pay

We’re gonna get this wrapped up for Christmas
No stopping til we’re done
We’re gonna get this wrapped up for Christmas
Catch the bad man on the run

Catch him, catch him, catch him
We’re gonna catch him, catch him, catch him


Who’s this silly old man – Duet for son and mother, almost sing spoken by the boy and more singing
from Mum, Nick is discovering who Santa Claus is.

Who’s this silly old man
Mummy’s making me sit on his knee
I don’t know what’s going on he’s a stranger to me
A funny red suit and a pure white long beard
I’m finding this very weird

Who’s this silly old man
The other kids love him
But I don’t know why
Last year this old man he made me cry
I think perhaps that I’m warming to him
The people around him all love to sing

This man is so scary but also so nice
I’m so confused I need some advice
“Mummy”, I said, “Who’s this silly old man?
Everyone seems to be his biggest fan!”

She laughed out loud hysterically
I’m more confused, why’s she laughing at me
Then she said something I’ll never forget
This is what she said

This is Santa Claus, he brings toys he brings joy
He’s the very reason we’re all happy my boy
Just once a year he gets on his sleigh
Gifts for the whole world just for Christmas Day

The elves make the toys for the girls and the boys
The elves work for fun they don’t stop til they’re done
If this sounds amazing it’s not yet the best bit
For this you’d better sit

To make sure all of the good boys and girls
Receive all their presents all over the world
Santa needs help from the most wondrous of things
He’s got eight special reindeer who fly without wings

So remember my child he’s no silly old man
He’s a saviour a saint from New York to Japan
Say your goodbyes you’ll see Santa next year
Don’t be upset wipe away your tear
Say your goodbyes you'll see Santa next year




My First Letter To Santa Claus – Nicks heart warming letter to Santa

When little Nick starts to sing he'll sit there thinking aloud how to start the letter, "Santa, Dear Santa..."

To Mr Santa Claus,
Can you make my Christmas dream come true
I've finished all my chores
Now I'm writing to you

My Daddys got himself in trouble but he did no wrong
In his cell growing stubble but he don't belong
Cos there's this man you see
Who's on a stealing spree
All the kids presents meant for Christmas Day
All disappearing but there's just no way
it was my Daddy
no no way
It was my Daddy
He's not the baddy
And he's been put away

Me and my Mother are so sad
I can see it in her eyes
Everything taken what we had
Our life destroyed by lies

Dear Mr Santa Claus
Can you make my Christmas dream come true
The only present of yours
That I need is your presence and a miracle from you

I don't want a Nintendo
I don't even want a new football
Don't want any game or any thing at all
This year,

The only thing that I need
Which I'm writing to you to plead
I want my Daddy home
Just need my Daddy home

Bad Santa's still on the run
Ruining Christmas for everyone
Please Santa say you'll come
This is my Christmas Dream
This is my Christmas Dream


I'm A Wealthy Man – Almost operatic but quicker and not classical

He's a fat cat he's money mad        } sung by bystanders
Doesn't care for life it's so so sad

They call me a fat cat
I don't really mind that
I've really got a lot of cash
And I'm very proud of my moustache

It's true what they say by all accounts
In interest alone I earn very large amounts
Christmas time means cheques for me
Forget about Christianity
A big boastful bonus gives me everything I need
It's the only gift I get that can satisfy my greed
Some people want love I want money
Their World is unhappy but mines always sunny

Sing I'm a wealthy man I am
Sing I'm a wealthy man
I love to work it's what I do
It puts money in my bank and I'm richer than you
I'd sell my mother given half the chance
She can cook, clean, sing and she likes to dance
When people hear me say this they say it's just plain meanness
I tell them all the same thing and say it's just good business
Sing I'm a wealthy man I am
Sing I'm a wealthy man
Sing I'm a wealthy man I am
Sing I'm a wealthy man

I don't see the family much
I wouldn't say I miss them as such
My son gets upset because I don't have time to watch him play sports
My daughter cries her eyes out because I don't read her school reports
But I'm a wonderful father, probably the best
I give them everything money can buy, they ought to think they're blessed
Sing I'm a wealthy man I am
Sing I'm a wealthy man
Sing I'm a wealthy man I am
Sing I'm a wealthy man




The Santa Song - sung when they're making toys, Santa always says "arghhh I hate that song!"

He's slightly overweight and more
When he's asleep he slighty snores
He's the loverly loverly loverly loverly loverly Santa Claus

Claus, claus, claus claus he’s Santa claus claus claus
He’s Santa Claus claus claus he’s Santa Claus

His favourite colour’s red, he wears it all the time
It used to be green but it made him look like slime
He's the loverly loverly loverly loverly loverly Santa Claus

Claus, claus, claus claus he’s Santa claus claus claus
He’s Santa Claus claus claus he’s Santa Claus

He’s loved around the World but only once a year
He doesn’t get lonely though, us elves are always here
He's the loverly loverly loverly loverly loverly Santa Claus

Claus, claus, claus claus he’s Santa claus claus claus
He’s Santa Claus claus claus he’s Santa Claus

He’s tough, he’s fair, he’s got white hair,
When we misbehave there’s a bossy stare
He's the loverly loverly loverly loverly loverly Santa Claus

Claus, claus, claus claus he’s Santa claus claus claus
He’s Santa Claus claus claus he’s Santa Claus


Now That Santa’s Gone (what are we gonna do tonight) – to the tune of Now That We’ve Found Love

Now that Santas gone
What are we gonna do tonight.

Now that Santas gone
What are we gonna do tonight.

Hey you tell me what you got
Give me your ideas make em hot so we are good to trot
Hit me up Hit me up
A little hot syrup
Lets get wild party hard til the suns up
Been left alone
So lets put on a good show
We’re partyin, partyin watch the way the elves go
So what's it gonna be
Her or the candy (cute girl Elf and some tasty looking candy)
We aint got much time to get down I’m sure we all agree
I wanna have a dance
But we just met
Played while the robbers give a cop a quick check
Shake me, Shake me
Baby Baby bake me
No need to fake here I am
Come on and take me
Wind your body
Baby move your body
I see you slip sliding
Come on now do it hottie
I'm not quite sure as to what is going down
But I'm feeling Hunky Dory
'bout this thing that I found

Now that Santas gone
What are we gonna do tonight.

Now that Santas gone
What are we gonna do tonight.

I dig the way you wiggle
You don't jiggle
Once you jiggle
So hand over your love
Cause it's heavier
Than it'll
Move like a Mover
She wanted to groove
So I grooved her
Then she wanted to learn
So we'd be schoolin'
So I schooled her
(Mary had a little lamb)
But not like this
We can waltz and turn
Rumble tumble and twist
Then you think you gonna give in
Phantasies relivin'
So lay down and relax
Lover my lady
Lady love of my baby girl
Spread your wings
So we can fly around the world
???
When you drop me kisses
You're so cute you drop the bomb on me
Stretch it
Stretch it
Flex it
Flex it
Gimme the permission
Okey, Dokey
I'll bless ya
Blessin' like buddha
Buddha as the bless
You can lay down on the Lover
Put your head on my chest

Now that we found love
What are we gonna do with it.

Now that we found love
What are we gonna do with it.

What can we do
What are we gonna do
Roses are red and Violets are blue
Love is good and plenty
If you get plenty good lovin'
Kiss you where you’re hot
to what I got to keep you bubblin
(Now) Do me right
Do me right
My lonesome dove
Tell me one more time
What is this thing called love
I'm not quite sure
As to what is going down
But I'm feelin' Hunkey Dory
'Bout this thing that I found


Christmas Lock Up

Christmas Lock Up
I've been stitched up
I'm not guilty
Please believe me
And I don't know what's happening
Cos no ones told me anything

I'm Sitting in my cell at Christmas Time
Falsely accused there was no crime
I Feel like I’m in hell this Christmas
Jail wasn't on my wish list

I’ll break out of this cage, can’t go to prison
Not at my age but no-one will listen
Merriment and joy not for me
Just burnt pie and misery

Christmas Lock Up
I've been stitched up
I'm not guilty
Please believe me
And I don't know what's happening
Cos no ones told me anything


Santastic Sleigh Ride

Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow

It’s sensational, superb, not to mention very sassy
It’s simply how to travel if you’re feeling very classy
It’s so sophisticated if you’re being understated
It’s spectacularly super when we do a loop the looper

It’s Santas supreme santastic sleigh ride
Over the fields and the oceans we glide
It’s Santas supreme santastic sleigh ride
One year the Sleigh broke and all the children cried

Come on kids up up and away
All aboard my santastic sleigh
We’re off for an adventure to see the elves
Sit back relax and enjoy yourselves

So Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow

Our course is set for winter wonderland
We’ll be welcomed by our best brass band (brass instr.)
It's truly a wonderful place
Where elves live in peace, snowmen can walk
You do as you please and the animals can talk

We’ll be going fast so hold on tight
Flying for fun through the star filled night
Dipping and diving the reindeers are driving
They know where we’re going, the place where it’s snowing
Kids: Santa’s the main man, the only one who can
         Fly through the night sky, taking us up high
         Santa’s the main man, the only one who can
         Fly through the night sky, taking us up high

Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow

My Sleighs so fast it's quicker than light
Hooray we here the North Pole's in sight
Look over there it's shining bright
Have you ever seen such a wonderful white

Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow
Ho Ho Home we go
Back to the elves and the magical snow



In Just One Night. - A song for when the kids question that Santa can deliver all presents


The whole world
The whole world
Every boy every girl
Every boy every girl
In just one night
The whole world
The whole world
In just one night

Can it really be done
Visiting everyone
In just one night

Fly across the sky
Faster than the light
In just one night

Is it magic or real
Tell us how does it feel
In just one night

Every town every place
Without leaving a trace
In just one night

Not sure I can believe it
Tell us the secret
We have got to know

Well, if you must know
Then I suppose so...
Listen nice and close
It's all because
I'm Santa Claus of course
I defy all physical laws
No audience and no applause
No one sees and no one hears
Me and my flying magical deers
Appearing here appearing there
Down your chimney and everywhere
The whole world
Yes, that's right
The whole world
In just one night

But there's not enough time
To get from China to mine
In just one night

But somehow I believe it
It's just hard to conceive it
In just one night

Because you're Santa Claus
Defying physical laws
In just one night

Every boy every girl
Every boy every girl
The whole World
The whole World
In just one night




Happy Holidays – possible song to be worked on and fitted in somewhere, probably not needed.
Happy happy holiday
It’s that time of year we get away
We’re gonna have a
Happy Happy holiday
Kids all smiles now shout hooray
Packed our case we’re on our way
It’s a happy happy happy happy happy holiday

A sunny beach, a ski resort
Shall we visit Europe or Singapore
So many places we adore
It’s a happy holiday




Taking the Dog for a Walk – sung when the family are out having fun, nice little jazzy number.

Taking the dog for a walk
It’s his favourite thing

Where do I begin, now let me see
He’s chasing his sticks,
He’s licking his lips
As the bitches walk on by

He’s running free,
He loves that tree,
And he never,
No never
Wants to go home
Nooo he never, no never
Wants to go home

What’ll it be today,
The beach or the park
Doesn’t matter either way
He loves to have a lark
He’s barking away
With a please lets stay
Cos he never,
No never
Wants to go home
Nooo he never, no never
Wants to go home

Taking the dog for a walk
It’s his favourite thing
Playing out til dark, he’s so carefree

Forgetting the world
And chasing the girls
That’s why he never
No he never
Wants to go home
Nooo he never, no never
Wants to go home.


Does Daddy Still Love Me – Maybe/maybe not sung, doesn’t really fit in with the perfect family.

Did I do something wrong Daddy
You make me feel like I don't belong Daddy
You say I won't get no presents from Santa this year
I always get what I want let me make that clear
Did I misbehave or was I so bad
Why is Daddy trying to make me feel so sad
You've hurt my heart Daddy
My sadness feelings are off the chart Daddy

Does Daddy still love me
Does Daddy still care
I just wanna have good presents for christmas
My life's so unfair
I’m 9 years old and I’m a good little girl
I need a barbie, a castle a pony with curls
Does Daddy still love me
Does Daddy still care
I just wanna have good presents for christmas
My life's so unfair

If I ask a bit nicer maybe
I’ll get what I want maybe
Daddy won’t let me down when I shed a tear
Unless of course it’s true what I fear
Does Daddy still love me
Does Daddy still care
I’m 9 years old and I’m a good little girl
My life’s so unfair
My life is so unfair


Mr Witzers Song – title to be decided, sung when Mr Witzer is caught red handed and needs to explain
himself.



Lights Lights Lights –

When it's dark outside
You begin to wonder if you'll find your way
When day turns to night
Listen to the thunder don't you run away

Like a rainbow in the dark
Glowing bright inside my heart
I can see you now

In the reflection of your eyes
There's a colourful surprise
I can see you now

Everybody loves
Lights lights lights
As pretty as a peacock in the summer sun

Everybody loves
Lights lights lights
Brightening our winter now we're having fun

Everybody loves
Lights lights lights
Lights lights lights

Lights lights everywhere
Look over here look over there
Lights lights everywhere
Look at them glow look at them glare

They hide away at day time
Wait for night to come and shine
They brighten the night

It's a beautiful sight
Lights lights lights
Lights lights lights




Christmas is better than Vegas – Very spritely song, very showbiz, finale song.

Christmas is better than Vegas
With more lights and snow fights
There is nothing better
It’s a super super time of the year
With a ho ho ho and a red nosed reindeer

You can argue with me until you’re blue in the face
But Christmas hands down beats a queen king and ace
Las Vegas is full of unnatural highs
Christmas has turkey and tasty mince pies

Christmas is better than Vegas
So don’t be fooled by the flashy hotels
Snuggle up at home and sing Jingle Bells
There is nothing better
It’s a super super time of the year
With a ho ho ho and a red nosed reindeer

I can tell some of you don’t believe what I say
But Vegas is too hot for Santa’s Sleigh
A family dinner or a dingy casino
I’m staying for Christmas with my bambino

Christmas is better than Vegas
Ladies of the night or silent night
There is nothing better
It’s a super super time of the year
With a ho ho ho and a red nosed reindeer

It’s an undeniable statistical fact
That Christmas is better than Vegas
Ho ho ho
