An Imaginative But Highly Unlikely Musical Tale For Young Voices
by Teresa Jennings & Karl Hitzemann
This fun new musical is an origin story of Santa Claus. A really, really silly one. It's told as a story to a couple of Polar Podcasters of The North Pole Network. The setting is, therefore, just a room with "microphones and headsets" (props). The script calls for two Polar Podcasters and seven historians (Santa-storians), as well as an onstage audience for listening/group speaking, but it's all very flexible. Characters can be elves, reindeer, kids, animals, aliens, Christmas trees, snow people, and so on.

The concept is simple, and the performance results will be dramatic and moving for performers and audiences alike. Take eight of the most beloved carols, and arrange them in simple vocal arrangements, the way you expect them to be (with optional second parts) and create a narrative based on the scriptural telling of the Christmas story, broken into segments that set up the songs.

Make A Joyful Noise
Handbells are fun to play. And they're a great way for young musicians to master skills in ear-training, music reading, and ensemble playing. That's why we thought it was a great idea to combine handbells with these six well-known African American spirituals. That way kids can have fun performing and learning about some of these very important and historic songs.
