Martin's Christmas Carol

A 20 minute musical

Book by Gary Sironen; lyrics & music adapted by Gary Sironen

An imaginary tale about German religious reformer Martin Luther and his effort to direct his first children's Christmas musical, with a little help from his wife, Kate. The music is adapted from Luther's Christmas hymn, "From Heaven Above to Earth I Come", which he actually wrote for use as a children's musical. This musical is written for a small cast of 3-6 children and two adults (or older kids playing adult roles), but it can easily be adapted for a larger cast and amended with the addition of audience sing-along Christmas Carols between scenes.
