Long Live Christmas
- by Islay Benson
This play has 13 male and 6 female characters, with 13 extras. In front of the curtain is a present day public square. As the play passes back in time, we see a public square in the 17th century. The King of Camerovia banned Christmas because the towns of Christmas: Peace, Love, Kindness, Faith, Hope, Childhood, Fun, and the Christmas Fairy to return Christmas to the sad kingdom of Camerovia. When the King realizes that even though he outlawed feasting, decorations, and presents, he could not change the fact that Christmas is a state of mind and heart.
