As a Christmas tree, Douglas Fir is the center of attention as he extols the joys of being decorated. Unfortunately, Douglas is soon stripped of adornment, thrown to the curb, and left in a pile of trash. Determined to remain a decorated Christmas tree, Douglas heads back home to Mistletoe Mountain and Miss Balsam's Finishing School for Christmas Trees to get the diploma he never received. But Douglas only succeeds in becoming more miserable and turns his back on Christmas. Happily, an important discovery allows him to understand his true purpose and the real meaning of the holiday.
“Despite the story being short on substance, serious topics such as homelessness, addiction, sex, depression, suicide, stealing, and attempted murder, are addressed. There are few adult references that might make this musical interesting to anyone over the age of 13. The first act is tediously long and, despite it being a Christmas Show, there is no reference to Jesus Christ. On the plus side, there are some big production numbers, colorful costumes, fine acting, and impressive choreography.” Full Review
See it if You want a gem of a holiday show, with earworms you'll be humming for days, a clever script, and surprisingly good costumes.
Don't see it if You're a grinch, or can't be bothered to schlep to Fort Hamilton.
See it if You want to see something unique, that defies convention & yet still delivers a heart warming message of giving and transformation.
Don't see it if You can't see the forest for the trees. :)
