Norman Gnome only wants to help. There's a sleigh to paint, boots to shine and reindeer to groom - but Santa says he's too small and sends him home. Aahh, poor Norman Gnome! However, when all the other helpers become so tired out, Norman gets the most important job of all... YIPPEE!

"Gnome Alone" is a visually appealing, simple and enjoyable infant production making it perfect for the less confident in staging productions.

Prologue

The six Narrators open the show and introduce the Elves, Fairies and Norman Gnome.

Scene One: Santa's Workshop

It's nearly Christmas time and there are so many jobs to do! Who will paint the sleigh? Norman Gnome eagerly volunteers but painting is an Elf's job and Gnomes are too small. Poor Norman Gnome!

Scene Two: The Stables

It's time to groom the reindeer and despite Norman's enthusiasm, he is again told that he is too small for the job. As the disappointed Gnome heads home to play with his toys, the Fairies set about smartening up Santa's four legged friends.

Scene Three: Santa's House

Santa's boot box is full of dirty boots! The boot polishing Elves get to work but they soon realise that such hard work takes its toll. The exhausted Elves head home for a nap.

Scene Four: Gnome Alone

Norman is home alone and fed up! His toy Clowns, Teddies and Soldiers all do their best to cheer him up but even they can't put a smile on his face. Poor, fed up Norman Gnome!

Scene Five: Present Packing

The packing Fairies are rushed off their tiny fairy feet filling the sacks to load onto Santa's sleigh. After their job is done, they too retire for a well deserved rest.

Scene Six: Sleigh Time

It's time for the most important job, delivering presents! But where is everyone? Santa's helpers are all fast asleep after being so busy. Norman Gnome however, is wide awake and just the right size to sit behind the sacks on Santa's sleigh. Hooray for Norman Gnome!
