'Davey the Donkey' EYFS and KS1 Primary Christmas Show Play Script
A full and original Early Years/KS1 Christmas show play script, which is ready to perform and can also be adapted to your performance needs.

Imagine the scene: Davey the Donkey is minding his own business in his field, when three sheep suddenly appear and tell him of the dreadful fate of Santa. He’s stuck in a chimney! How will the children get their presents? Too shy to make a suggestion, Davey watches as a selection of well known Christmas characters and farm animals try and fail to release the stricken Santa. Eventually, Davey saves the day using teamwork, donkey strength and his knowledge of an enormous turnip…

This is a fun and educational story for the Christmas period, which is enjoyable for children to read and perform, as well as being straightforward for teachers to organise and direct.
