"Heavenly Drama from Radius"
In Time to Sing by Keith Clements the angelic choir rehearses for an important event which is to take place on earth, and in Christmas Through the Window by Richard Tydeman a couple living opposite the Bethlehem inn watch the comings and goings and offer help.
Other copiable scripts from Radius include two by Les Ellison, the hugely popular Are the Kings Still Wearing Curtains? for a flexible mixed-age cast, and Special Delivery, eleven short and lively modern dramas exploring the ways in which the Christmas message was delivered in the traditional nativity story. The dramas make up a complete nativity play, but each scene serves as a play in itself and so one or two could be used in a carol service or concert.
A full selection of Radius Christmas scripts is available in the shop.
