Delightful, Great writing, Great cast, Funny & heart tugging, Children's play adults can enjoy & admire

See it if want to see a high octane, superiorly talented cast deliver a message musical with great heart, want 2 see what all Fringe should aspire to

Don't see it if you think a children's show at Fringe cannot affect you emotionally or if you cannot admire the skill[s] that comprise this piece

Funny, Great acting, Original, Clever, Fun

See it if you like musicals that take familiar characters and stories and present them in new ways.

Don't see it if you don't like to see old fairy tales updated or changed in any way.

“The music by M. Scott McLean and Michael McLean is high energy, fun, and memorable - you’re guaranteed to walk away with a song or two playing in your head...The dialogue and lyrics are more on the sophisticated side for children’s theater, making this show perhaps better suited to ages eight and older...A wonderful family show with great messages of love and the spirit of giving that parents will enjoy just as much as their children..”

"Although some of the visual elements are lean, the McLean men have come up with some wit…Wisely, they ground the doings in humor…However, there were many instances of too-advanced vocabulary and wordy speeches and the cardinal sin of telling instead of showing, which also can make children confused and tune out…This could use some trimming…There’s some refreshing repartee and splendid ideas…When things clicked, this Christmas in August really rang the jingle bell."
