Merry Halloween - A 10 minute Halloween inspired Christmas play for years 5/6

Merry Halloween - A 10 minute Halloween inspired Christmas play for years 5/6

A comedic play which is a mash up of Halloween and Christmas. Dracula has over slept and missed his annual Halloween Party. Will he enjoy his first ever taste of Christmas? A play with a cast of 8 actors who can be male or female. The play includes 3 zombies which have no real lines but "sing and dance" briefly. Props are minimal and can be easily created by gluing a picture on to cardboard and cutting it out. There are 3 separate scenes although no scenery is required. One sound effect of a doorbell. The play lasts about 10 minutes and is suitable for years 5/6. The play would work well for an end of term performance as part of your Christmas celebrations.
