All of the glorious music and fabulous fantasy characters of the classic Victor Herbert creation are included in this bright contemporary adaptation. Join Contrary Mary, Tom-Tom, Little Bo Peep, Boy Blue and their friends for an adventure that audiences will never forget! There may not be Christmas this year! Barnaby, the miser of Mother Goose Village, threatens to foreclose the mortgage on the old woman's "shoe," but her children know what to do. They venture to Toyland to ask the master toymaker for help. Why? Because the master toymaker can do anything! Getting there, however, involves traversing the Haunted Forest, braving giant spiders and escaping Barnaby's bumbling henchmen. A beautiful, enchanted butterfly leads them safely to the gates of Toyland where they soon discover that the master toymaker is in a quandary himself. There may not be Christmas in Toyland either! He's lost the formula for his magic potion that brings toys to life. The children and toymaker work together to find the formula in time for "you-know-who's" famous sleigh ride around the world, and the old woman's shoe is saved due to the toymaker's clever and quick thinking. Victor Herbert's unforgettable score sings magic into this play.
