Two time travellers, Doctor When and Doctor What, arrive from the future at our Christmas time. They visit a store, a pantomime, a cracker factory and a turkey farm trying to discover what Christmas is all about. Eventually they travel even further back in time to discover a very special baby.

"Who" is a Christmas production with a fun time travel theme which is particularly appealing to older boys. Its uplifting songs are sure to inspire pupils and get the audience tapping their toes!



Three Narrators introduce us to two time travellers, Doctor When and Doctor What. They have been travelling through time and space trying to discover the true meaning of Christmas and find themselves on planet Earth to see if they can find the answer.

Scene One: The Christmas Store

Christmas time in a department store is always busy and Mrs Selway, the shop assistant, is dealing with the rush. A mother and her two whingey children are claiming that Santa has pinched a lollipop but we soon discover it's stuck to his beard! Enter the Doctors who decide to ask 'the funny old chap with the white beard' if he knows anything about Christmas. After a confusing conversation the department store Santa becomes frustrated and the Doctors leave.

Scene Two: The Cracker Factory

Ever wondered who chooses the jokes in crackers? They get auditioned and measured with a laughometer! Three contestants line up in front of the Doctors and deliver a series of awful jokes before the worst is chosen. After all, who ever heard of a funny joke in a cracker?

Scene Three: Pantomime

Cinderella is on at the Alhambra and the Doctors decide to attend. As they enter and sit down to watch the show a ballroom scene comes to life and the ugly sisters bustle on stage. The story of Cinderella unfolds as it is acted out in Track 4.

Scene Four: Down At The Farm

Mrs Fry shows the time travelling duo around her farm. A flock of gobbling turkeys enters and panic sets in when the Doctors discuss their fate with Mrs Fry. Only one way to calm terrified Turkeys.......Turkeys delight! After a sweet treat the bumbling birds perform 'The Turkey Trot'.

Scene Five: Going Backwards

Disappointed and frustrated by not finding the answer they have been searching for, When and What decide to take drastic action and set their spaceship to the year nought. After problems with a troublesome flat battery, the spaceship is 're-thwarfed' and they set off through time and space.

Scene Six: The Road To Bethlehem

The Doctors emerge from their ship to discover that they are in the middle of a desert. After a failed attempt to take a camel train they set off on foot in search of their answer which they soon find in a stable in Bethlehem. They learn of the birth of a baby, God's special gift to mankind and the true meaning of Christmas.

I bought Dave Corbett's 'Who?' to perform as our Junior Christmas Play. I
chose it because the songs were so varied and the children really enjoyed
learning and singing them, it was easy to choreograph dances because the
songs were so different. Also, there were not too many words for the
children to remember. For the song 'In the town of Bethlehem', two of the
boys volunteered to sing a duet for one part and the parents were in tears.
It is a lovely play with some pantomime and up to date TV themes, but also
with the traditional Christmas theme reminding us of what Christmas is
actually about.
