We'd like to wrap this musical in gold paper with spangles all over it and attach a card saying Merry Christmas! Remember the wonderful Victor Herbert music? Remember the lyrics? "Toyland, toyland, little girl and boy land."

There are wonderful roles for everyone: Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary; Tom-Tom, the Piper's Son; Jack and Jill; Little Miss Muffet; Wicked Uncle Barnaby who runs the toy shop (and his comic-ruffian assistants, Roderigo and Gonzorgo) and can turn children into dolls and sell them for gold; and lovable Jane and Alan who are his next victims.

The adaptation uses the original music of Victor Herbert and much of Glen MacDonough's libretto and lyrics. 

An optional accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. Contact our office for details.
