While looking for materials to use for our showman activity pin, I happened
upon a great book in our local library. I thought is might be a useful
resource for others. It's called "The Big Book of Holiday Plays", edited by
Sylvia E. Kamerman. It contain 31 one-act plays related to holiday themes
including, Columbus Day, Halloween, Election Day, Book Week, Thanksgiving,
Christmas, Black History Month, Lincoln's Birthday, Valentine's Day,
Washington's Birthday, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Arbor Day and Mother's Day.
The book is published by Plays, Inc., 120 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02116. It
is cataloged in the "Drama" section of the library under 812.08 B. ISBN
The plays are geared toward youth and some are fairly funny parodies. Most of
the plays have parts for six or more people. They're just the right length
(we read "Randy, the Red-Horned Rainmoose" in twenty minutes at our last den
meeting). Now the boys want to perform the play at December's Pack Night!
