Act 1 Scene 1

{Enter Lolla-Tuesday}

Tuesday: Lolla! I’m Serious! What am I going to do? Tomorrow is
Christmas Eve and I still haven’t gotten Ocean a present!

Lolla: Chill, you have time. Two whole days to pick an amazing present. That’s 48 hours. That's plenty of time. Wait, you've already got me covered right? Because if you think that two days is enough time...

{Tuesday Cuts Lolla Off}

Tuesday: Now you need to chill. Of course I've got you covered. Selfish, ever heard of “It's the thought that counts?”

Lolla: Yes, have you ever heard of a re-gift?

Tuesday: You are a bad person!

Lolla: And you are a procrastinator! What were you thinking? Waiting till the day before Christmas Eve to by the cousin you haven’t seen since you where eight.

Tuesday: I couldn’t decide. I thought, maybe a purse but what if someone else gets her one too? Then I thought maybe an outfit, but it would be too awkward. So I'm stuck, kind of like a writers block.

Lolla: Well being Ocean's childhood friend as well, and I went to visit her two weeks ago, I know every thing about him, even the things I don't want to know.

Tuesday: Just get to the point.

Lolla: Okay, okay, what is the one thing that Ocean is best at?

Tuesday: Um, BMX

Lolla: Correct. Now did you know that Ocean wants new flash tires?

Tuesday: What are flash tires?

Lolla: Tires that make a neon glow when you ride. They’re pretty cool.

Tuesday: That's perfect! How much are they and where can I get them?

Lolla: Down by the Leo's. It’s a pawnshop called Mogie.

Tuesday: Okay how much are they?

Lolla: Um that’s the problem they are $175.00

Tuesday: Yeah, that’s a bit of a problem...

Lolla: Sorry.

Tuesday: I will come up with the money some how. In fact I already have an idea.

Lolla: Oh gosh, will I be able to sleep tonight?

{Tuesday exit stage left}

[Lolla: Silent Night]

Silent Night

Silent night! Holly night!
All is calm all is bright round young virgin mother and child Holy infant so tender and mild sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent night! Holly night!
Shepherds quake at the sight glories stream from heaven afar heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah Christ the savior is born!

Silent night! Holly night!
Son of God love's pure light radiant beams from thy holy face with the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord at thy birth.









Act 1 Scene 2

{Enter Ocean}{Lolla does not leave}

Ocean: Lolla! I’m Serious! What am I going to do? Tomorrow is
Christmas Eve and I still haven’t gotten Tuesday a present!

Lolla: Again. Chill, you have time. Two whole days to pick an amazing present. That’s 48 hours. That's plenty of time.

Ocean: Okay, you are right I need to calm down.

Lolla: Good now why are you here? I thought you where not supposed to get here till Christmas day!

Ocean: I booked an early flight on accident. It will work in my favor though, because now I can figure out what to get her.

Lolla: {To the crowd} The two of them are defiantly related.
Well what are you going to get her?

Ocean: Ummmm, well I don’t know yet.

Lolla: Sweet Marry! You’re hopeless!

Ocean: Oh powerful Lolla! Please help me in this situation to figure out what my long lost cousin Tuesday wants for Christmas!

Lolla: Okay. Okay. I will help you; Seeing as I know everything about my best friend I will give you a hint. What is her favorite thing to do?

Ocean: Read?

Lolla: Correct, now last I checked there was a very rare very hard to find book out there that, would complete one of her collections…

Ocean: The last book in the Plug saga?

Lolla: Correct again. Now your friend here knows a guy who knows a guy and can get a hold of one for you.

Ocean: Perfect! How much? I will do what ever it takes! 

Lolla: $175.00

Ocean: That’s going to be a problem.

Lolla: I know will you be able to do it? I need the money by tomorrow.

Ocean: Of course. I will find a way.

Lolla: Okay well good luck. I got to go. See you later!

{Lolla exit stage left}

 Ocean: Santa help me…
 
Ocean: Santa Baby

Santa Baby

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, an out-of-space convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo

Santa honey, I wanna yacht and really that's
Not a lot
I've been an angel all year
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, I'm filling my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your 'X' on the line
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don't mean a phone
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight

 
Act 1 Scene 3

Elf: What do you think big guy?

Reindeer: I’ve been wondering two what do you think Chris?

Santa: Well they aren’t on the naughty list yet we will just have to see how things turn out…

Elf: Do you think they will be okay?

Reindeer: Things could get pretty bad…

Santa: Try a little faith will ya?

Reindeer & Elf: What ever you say big guy…

Elf: Oh Yeah, Santa? Are we going to have a white Christmas this year?

Santa: Maybe, ho ho ho the world may never know!

Elf: Oh Santa you’re so mean! I want a white Christmas this year…

Elf: White Christmas

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Reindeer: Epic song.

{Exit Reindeer stage left}

Santa: Yeah I really didn’t expect you to break out in song but it was good.

Elf: Thank you.

{All exit stage left}

Reindeer: Really, well enlighten us

{Elf goes and whispers in Santa’s ear]

Santa: Now that’s a good idea!

Elf: Okay now let’s go make it snow!

Elf & Santa: Let It Snow

Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

   
It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I've bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Reindeer: I love that song but do you know what song I love even more?

Elf: Oh please enlighten us.
Reindeer: Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer!

Lolla: Look it’s snowing!

Ocean & Tuesday: Baby Its Cold Outside
 

   
Baby Its Cold Outside

Baby It's Cold Outside

I really can't stay - Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away - Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - Beautiful, please don't hurry
Well Maybe just a half a drink more - Put some music on while I pour

The neighbors might think - Baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink - No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how - Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell - I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no, no, no, sir - Mind if I move a little closer
At least I'm gonna say that I tried - What's the sense in hurting my pride
I really can't stay - Baby don't hold out
Ahh, but it's cold outside

C'mon baby

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no - Ooh baby, it's cold outside
This welcome has been - I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm -- Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious - Man, your lips look so delicious
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips look delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Never such a blizzard before

I've got to go home - Oh, baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb - It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand - Your eyes are like starlight now
But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me
There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Making my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay - Get over that old out
Ahh, but it's cold outside

Baby it's cold outside

Brr its cold...
It's cold out there
Can’t you stay awhile longer baby
Well... I really shouldn't... alright

Make it worth your while baby

Lolla: Um did you forget about me I wanna do a Christmas song too.

Ocean: Okay well to add to our ending.

Tuesday: Okay 1… 2 … 3…4

Ocean, Lolla, Tuesday: Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell jingle bell jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle bell jingle bell jingle bell rock Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square In the frosty air

What a bright time it's the right time To rock the night away Jingle bell time is a swell time To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh Giddy-up jingle horse pick up your feet Jingle around the clock Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell That's the jingle bell rock   

Act 3 Scene 2

Santa: Every thing worked out.

Elf: I got my white Christmas!

Reindeer: Alls well that ends well I guess.

Santa: Well, good night!

{all together}

And Merry Christmas!!!
