How To Marry A Prince

by Charlotte Murray published January 2013


Suitable for Youth Groups

Price: 4.00

A Christmas play with a cast of thousands, (seventy nine, to be precise) and aimed specifically at children aged 8-11 (Primaries four to seven). Funny lines, colourful characters, songs and sketches, and lots of parts. "Our P4-7s performed this Panto at Christmas and it was a runaway success! The children really shone in their roles. The 'pythonesque' humour made it a fun night for the adult audience. Highly recommend it." Kate Whiteley, Head Teacher, Aberdour Primary School


Angela's Mother wants her daughter to marry a Prince. And she has a plan. She arranges for Angela to be kidnapped so that she can be rescued by a Prince. She breaks McGrinch out of jail to guard Angela, but McGrinch only wants to steal Christmas. McGrinch and Angela band together to form a crime circle and steal presents. Meanwhile Cinderella's Ugly Stepbrothers who want to rescue Angela dress up as girls and fall foul of Detective Columbo who arrests them for trying to kidnap Baby Jesus. Then there's the Seven Dwarves, some sheep and Cruella De Vil!
