Christmas is coming!
 
Hey everyone:
 
I have been put in charge of putting on a 20 minute Christmas play with 10 of my students.  I am wondering if any of my wise friends here on ESL Printables know of a good play that I could use.  I am looking for a dialogue that I can use for the students to memorize.   I was thinking of a play like, "A Christmas Carol" or something along that line.  If any of you have some help for me it would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks and cheers from Shanghai,
 
Fletsch

I doubt you could get through A Christmas Carol in 20 minutes.
Why not do a chapter from the Bible?  Or.........
Try writing Christmas Sketches in Google and see what comes up.

I have to stay away from Bible sketches as per my school - and I did google Christmas sketches, but they all seem a bit too difficult for my ESL students...

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
 
 
It īs a VERY simplified version of the story with a lot of repetition. I used it with 8 year old Japanese students last year. Four different classes and all successful.
 
Hope it īs useful to you.

I don īt know how old your sts are, but I have this play http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=262754#thetop here which I used with my students and it worked out well. We even did it as a puppet play, because some of them were shy to act in public. You can check the preview, so you don īt waste points if you don īt like it. Sorry for the self-advertising, people, but it īs a particular thing asked for.
Anyway, Fletsch, whatever you choose, do enjoy it - it can be so much fun putting on a play with kids.

I don īt understand - because Christmas IS a religious holiday! Isn īt putting on a Christmas play that īs not a religious a contradiction in terms?

Yes, it seem like a contrudiction to us but this play has to be done in china and they don īt want the children to know about a real Savior coming to earth to save peopl from their sins. So Christmas is more than just a religious holiday, it īs more about god who gives life and shanghai is in Communistic country
