There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency.

Perfect
"A perfect little play to use with children at Christmas. Our show was a real success and was so easy to produce. Wishing you as much of the Christmas joy as you've brought into the life of our school this year."
by Ms Gemma Collins

Really easy to use
"Yes, that’s’ me! I'm one of those busy stressed teachers that you've been aiming this play at and I had to drop you a quick line to say that it really did save me from a potentially sticky situation. Originally, we'd planned to do something completely different that was supposed to be provided by our visiting music teacher, but when they let us down I needed an alternative fast! Fortunately I found this pack on Google and it was the answer to all my prayers. I really loved the fact that I could easily download it over lunchtime and then we were able to start going through the songs immediately that afternoon. The next morning we went through the script and by the end of the day the performance was ready to go for the watching parents. It was a delight and really, really easy to use."
by Jen Jones

Thank you
"Thank you for Christmas Play in 1 Day. I downloaded it on the Tuesday night and we performed it on the Friday morning. We were able to use the script exactly as written, with the printable resources and Powerpoints being a real Godsend. Although the advice you provide suggests only using up to four of the six songs included, we actually used them all. We had two days of rehearsals planned, but you were correct, one would have been enough! That meant we were able to use the second day to add a bit of sparkle and polish with a few simple dance moves, extra ho-ho-ho's and lots of party poppers for a surprise finale! It went really well and a number of parents gave really excellent feedback. One word of advice to anyone thinking they can literally download this in the morning and perform it the same afternoon, I wouldn't recommend it as you need to spend a good few hours planning, preparing, printing, and getting your head round the songs and script, all before you start rehearsing with the children. So, in my opinion two days from start to finish is more realistic, but I suppose there's no reason why you couldn't plan, rehearse and perform a very simple version of this play in half a day. Finally, I have to say that I loved the subject matter of the play. The fact that it was set in a children's hospital served to remind the students that Christmas isn't always a joyful time for everyone, whilst at the same time the script still provided enough humour and charm to ensure that the everyone left with that warm, fuzzy festive feeling."
by B Parker

Does what it says on the tin
"I was very impressed by this clever children’s Christmas production. Is it the best Christmas play we've ever used? Of course not. There's no way you could get that from just a few hours of rehearsals. But does it help stressed teachers like me to conjure an impressive performance in next to no time? Absolutely! It really does do 'what it says on the tin’. We're only a small school with just three classes covering all ages from 5 to 11 and this suited us perfectly. Even more so, as I knew that we were probably due an inspection at some point during November or December and didn’t want to have to labour through weeks and weeks of endless rehearsals like we usually do. As it turned out the inspection happened on the day of the show! Thankfully it went without a hitch and the inspector that watched was suitably impressed, especially when I told her what little time we'd spent rehearsing! So, thank you Stuart Ross and your team for creating a very cleverly presented Christmas resource which genuinely helped our school in more ways than you could know."
by Mr R Yandell

Love it, love it, love it...
"We downloaded this performance last year and had to tell you how much we loved using it. Considering all the terrific songs, music, scripts and extra resources that are included, it's a cracking bargain. But the best thing is that we really were able to rehearse this in a day, with the minimum of preparation, saving us loads of valuable time. Though we couldn't have done it without reading through your included production notes and suggestions - Some very clever ideas for rehearsing quickly and a welcome change from the weeks and weeks of rehearsals we usually undertake. Well done Learn 2 soar!"
by Marie Mullins - Assistant Head

Thankyou
"We recently performed this and just want to say that the songs are really good and the script suited our needs perfectly! This is the first time we've used Learn2soar and we are greatly impressed. I'm sure that we will be buying from you a lot more in the future. The only problem is knowing what to select as there is so much great sounding material to choose from on your website!"
