Rudolph the Red Nosed Musical – A SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand extravaganza!

SCBWI’S FRACTURED CHRISTMAS CAROLS

Rudolph the Red Nosed Writer

Rudolph, the red-nosed writer
had a very shiny nose.
Singing and crying loudly

‘Can’t you see my gen-i –us?

All of the other publishers
used to call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any writing games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to stay:
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my publishing list tonight?”

Then all the publishers loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!

LULU BELLS (Jingle Bells)

Lulu Bells, Lulu Bells
Jingling all the way
Oh what fun,
It is to ride,
In a one-boy dragon sleigh …Hey!

Dashing through the snow
With FEARLESS by our side

Over Saurus Street,
Dragons tearing by …Haha!
Fearless woofing blurts,
Lulu rings those bells,
Oh what fun it is to woof

And scream into the night …Oh!

Lulu Bells, Lulu Bells
Jingling all the way
Oh what fun,
It is to ride,
In a one-boy dragon sleigh …Hey!

O CHRISTMAS TREE

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging; O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
Not only green when publishing’s here,
But also when rejection’s drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
You’re lookin’ good in Hawkins’ town
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
But not so good when Ghost Boy’s drown
Oh it’s OK, your candles shine

Until Con-Nerd trips over the candle line                                                    O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine too brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Oh no, it’s a fire!!! A raging furnace!!!.
Oh we’re OK ,we’re Ok

Whiting’s Firefighters are on the way
Wai Chim and Jodie Wells-Slowgrove authors at SCBWI party The HughendenO Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles are controlled!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly stories have decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly stories have decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in books unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly SCBWI has decked thee

SCBWI WISHES EVERYONE A JOYOUS FESTIVE SEASON

Fractured verses by fractured author and RA SCBWI Susanne Gervay

 

 

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
