As the director of a large middle school drama group, I noticed that very few plays were available for large casts. So, I decided to turn the popular holiday song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," into a comedy that would allow virtually all of my young actors to have lines. 'Twelve Daze' twists the song about gift-giving into a parade of wacky characters who will amuse your audience and reinforce some of the best themes of Christmas - goodwill, joy, and giving. I laugh out loud every time I read it. The characters are so unexpected that every verse catches the audience off-guard and just adds to the excitement of what could possibly come next!
