Cast: 4m., 3w. (14 children or 9m., 12w., extras.) Santa's mischievous elves forgot to get Santa's own Christmas tree. So, Santa sends them out to find the "most beautiful one of all." Meanwhile, all the trees on Snowy Mountain dream of being chosen as Santa's Christmas tree and living ever after in his forest. The funny and macho Mr. Douglas, the elegant and vain Lady Spruce and the sophisticated Sir Noble believe they are the perfect choice. And Miss Merry, the scraggly little pine, has to agree. But … enter the crazy, wild Blizzard Wizard! There is chaos, fear and laughter as the forest animals try to escape him. Fortunately, Miss Merry finds a way to come to their rescue and they later thank her with a kiss. This causes her to blush and actually glow with happiness. Just at this point, the elves arrive and are amazed to see the little pine sparkling. The rest, of course, is Christmas history. Music in book. One int., one ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
