Christmas At The O.K. Corral
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
A Rootin' Tootin' Holiday Musical For Young Voices
The townspeople of Snowy Gulch prepare to celebrate Christmas with their annual festival at the O.K. Corral on the edge of town. Bubble Gum Bart, who is very annoyed by all the noise and happiness, tries to stop the celebration by threatening to cover the whole town in bubble gum. Frightened and desperate, the townspeople telegraph Santa Claus for help, so he sends The Candy Cane Kid to the rescue. The Kid confronts Bart (at sundown at the O.K. Corral, of course) with his most powerful strategy: communication. Bart breaks down and admits to The Kid that he doesn't really hate Christmas, he's just lonely and feels left out. The townspeople respond by welcoming Bart into their celebration and into their town. The Kid is a hero, Bart is loved, and the celebration of Christmas at the O.K. Corral is the greatest ever.
What could be more fun than dressing up your little ones in old-time western garb and letting them ham it up in this joyous musical? Like all of Teresa Jennings' primary musicals, it is created to work with almost any number of singers and actors, and the short lines make it easy to teach. While the story is secular in nature, it emphasizes strong moral values. The songs include:
- Christmas In The West
- Bubble Gum Goo
- Sticky Situation (a great rock-style tune that includes real Morse Code)
- Tell Me
- and a joyous hoedown finale, Christmas Is O.K.!
In addition, Bart and The Kid have their own theme music. Schools that performed Christmas At The O.K. Corral are still raving about it!
