|Costume & Set Pieces:||
Costumes can he as involved as you want them to be. The director's guide has full costume suggestions for each character in the show.
The musical takes place in your home. Depending on how elaborate you want to he. you could decorate with teal furniture, a couch, a kitchen table and chairs. a dining room table, etc. More realistically. you are going to have most of the performers on risers near the back of the stage with some open room downstage in order to act out some of the numbers with fewer cast members. It would be great to have a big arm chair on either side of the stage for the narrator to read from, although you could substitute a podium if he feels more comfortable there. It is intended to appear as though he is reading the audience a story in the parlor before they are hustled off to bed on Christmas Eve. Obvious decorations would include Christmas lights, a Christmas tree, stockings hung over a fireplace. presents. wreaths. etc.
Director's guide has extensive set notes.
There are choreography and staging suggestions throughout the score as well. These are for you to use, adapt or ignore as you see fit.
