This year you may not be able to bring all your family to see your Christmas school play, but here on After School Hub, we say: "The show must go on!"

In association with our friends at The Ark in Dublin, we want to make sure that you can put on your own top class Christmas performance for all the people you love, whether they live near or far, at home or abroad!  

You know how much your granny and grandad, your aunties and uncles love to see your school play each and every year? 
Well, with this very special production, you will be able to send them the best Christmas present EVER! A video of your very own play!

Stage it at home - or in your pod in school - and if you like, you can even send us a video clip of your play which might be shown on TV! 
But what do I perform? What about a script? Don't worry, we got ya covered for that too! A wonderful, short work called A Wintry Play has been specially written by playwright Mollie Molumby.

After you have learned your lines, the next thing you need to do is film the play. Hold the phone sideways and as steady as you can.

***Because the play is a bit longer than the usual videos we get on After School Hub you will need to send them via WeTransfer.com to macallateo@gmail.com***

Tune in to After School Hub each day from 30 Nov - 4 Dec to get some top tips from:

Director Shaun Dunne will be on hand to show you how to get started, explain what a director actually does and how to bring your own special touches to the play. 

Never acted before? Not a problem, actor Jade Jordan will be there to share her tips on learning lines, performing in front of an audience and creating a character.

Award-winning composer Tom Lane will bring you into the wonderful world of soundscapes and show you how he decides what music / sounds will really enhance a play and how you can too.

It's true that all the world's a stage, and set designer Sarah Bacon will inspire you to find ways to turn your living room into your very own stage while costume designer Saileóg O'Halloran gets you thinking about how you can create wonderful costumes at home.

After School Hub airs every weekday at 3.20pm on RTÉ2 and you can catch up RTÉ Player.
