A/N: I'm in the process now of going through, editing, etc this script. I've already cut the song "Let me Out, Let me in", but... yeah... just an fyi...

Scene 1

(Lights come up on a choir room. There is a piano in the center of the room and a window leading to the outside. High school age choir students enter and loiter about, talking. Among them are Neal, Jane, and Marcus along with students 1, 2, 3, and 4)

Choir teacher enters. She wheels a television)

Choir teacher: (to students)Ok Everyone. (pause, no one stops talking) Everyone? Stop talking. (no one stops talking) STOP TALKING OR I'M TAKING POINTS OFF THE WHOLE CLASS! (Everyone abruptly stops talking) Thank you. Since today is the Friday before winter break and you all did such a good job at the concert yesterday, I've decided that instead of working on our pieces for the next concert I will show a movie. (Students cheer) QUIET! (they stop) It's a musical.

(She turns on movie and all settle in to watch it. It can be any musical of the director's choosing. A song comes on and the students sing along, becoming very involved in it. As the song comes to a close the teacher steps forward and turns off the television)

Choir Teacher: Oh, I nearly forgot. A group of carolers who perform down town wanted to come in and perform for you all. The movie will have to wait for another time.

Students: Aw…

(Group of carolers enter- at least two men and two women. Choir teacher greets them and then addresses the class)

Choir teacher: Now pay attention to their annunciation and their breathing. (to carolers) You may begin.

(Carolers take in a deep breath as if to begin but are cut off by student shouting-)

Student 1: HEY! It's snowing!

(Students rush to the window, babbling)

Student 1: Wow! It's so beautiful!

Student 2: Do you think we'll have a snow day?

Student 3: It's winter break, stupid.

Student 4: It looks like it's going to be a white Christmas

Choir teacher: EXCUSE ME! Back to your seats! (Students grudgingly return to their seats) You're high school students for goodness sakes, not little kids. (to carolers) I'm sorry, continue please.

[Snowing]

Male Carolers: (sung) Each window pane is crystal,

The sun's mother of pearl.

All Carolers: The front yard's made of porcelain,

And so is all the world!

The river's smooth as painted glass,

The white bird flies with grace.

And every tree that I have passed

Has been adorned with lace.

The air is filled with silver,

And ivory paves the lake.

It's amazing all the difference

Just a little snow can make!

Student 1: It's snowing, snowing. The air is glowing.

Student 2: The trees are glistening.

Student 3: The wind is whispering.

Student 4: In the brightness in the cold. Whether young and whether old

Students 1-4: People cheer because they know

it's snowing, snowing.

Students and carolers: Don't we love snow?

Choir teacher: The roads will be horrendous.

The heating bills tremendous.

I don't see what's so stupendous about

Breaking your back slipping on ice.

How I hate this season,

And this is the reason.

This cold, wet treason known as

Snowing, snowing.

Oh, how I hate snow!

Students and carolers: Oh, it brings us back to second grade

When the world was just a canvas we could paint our lives upon.

Snow is just a special way to relive yesterday

and the days when all our lives were just a song.

(The following parts are sung simultaneously)

Students: It's snowing, snowing.

The air is glowing.

The trees are glistening

The wind is whispering

In the brightness in the cold,

Whether young and whether old,

People cheer because they know

It's snowing, snowing

Choir teacher: The roads will be horrendous.

The heating bills tremendous.

I don't see what's so stupendous about

Breaking your back slipping on ice.

How I hate this season,

And this is the reason.

This cold, wet treason known as

Snowing, snowing.

Carolers: Each window pane is crystal,

The sun's mother of pearl

The front yard's made of porcelain,

And so is all the world!

The river's smooth as painted glass,

The white bird flies with grace.

And every tree that I have passed

Has been adorned with lace.

The air is filled with silver,

And ivory paves the lake.

It's amazing all the difference

Just a little snow can make!

Students: Don't we love…

Teacher: How I hate…

Carolers: It's a world of…

All: Snow!

(Final pose. Everyone breaks out of it and sings again. As they do, Neal breaks from his line and looks about in bewilderment.)

Neal: What the…?

All(Except Neal): (sung) It's snowing, snowing, excitement's growing!

Neal: (spoken) Wait a second

All(Except Neal): (sung) The world is waiting, anticipating-

Neal: (spoken) WAIT A SECOND! (all stop and look at him) Why are we singing? (All stare at him blankly) Don't give me that look! We all just sang a song about snow. I've certainly never heard it before, have any of you? And we were all dancing. Why were we dancing? (no response) Doesn't anyone find this odd!

Teacher: Neal, dear, I think you should calm down.

Neal: I should calm down? You should calm down! You all should calm down! (exits angrily)

Teacher: (counting off) One-two-three!

All: (sung) It's snowing, snowing

The air is glowing…

(All exit in different directions as the music trails off)
