New Holiday Comedy

'Twas the Night Before the Night Before Christmas

By R. Eugene Jackson

HOLIDAY COMEDY. It's the night before Christmas, and there isn’t one present under the Perkadilly’s tree.  Wait!  It’s the night before the night before Christmas.  No wonder Santa hasn’t arrived!  But when two of Santa’s elves arrive to check their lists to see who has been naughty or nice, the Perkadilly children realize they’ve got too many checks on the naughty side and have just 24 hours to perform good deeds before Santa’s elves return to check their lists twice!


New Holiday Classic

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

By Tracy Wells

HOLIDAY CLASSIC. Adapted from the book by L. Frank Baum.  Young audiences will delight in learning Santa’s real name and what it means, how Santa became immortal, who built his workshop, why he loves the color red, and why he delivers toys at night.  When Santa begins to make toys and give them to children in a nearby village, he enrages the Lord of Lerd, who has banned all toys. The Lord of Lerd and Jack Frost set out to rid the land of Santa once and for all.  A one-act version is also available.
