SYNOPSIS: This fast-paced, witty play blends zany animal characters with a boy who is fearful that Santa will not be able to find him. The laughs will keep rolling as we join a small group of hungry forest animals in a desperate search for food on Christmas Eve. In the midst of their search, distant bells are heard and a wind-up soldier (mime role) plummets from the sky. Albert, the wise owl, concludes the strange object is a human toy and should be taken to the human burrow. Only the bravest (and perhaps most foolhardy) of the animals are willing to take the risk of a very dangerous trek to the human's burrow. Meanwhile, a city family is spending a couple of nights in an old, rustic cabin built by Father's great grandfather. There is no TV, no Play Station, and no neighbors. Joey is very discontent. Furthermore, he is concerned that Santa Claus will not be able to find him in this snow-covered wilderness. Join the adventure as the forest animals, and Joey, learn a lesson about the comforts of tradition and the meaning of Christmas.
