Unlimited Streaming
December 11th through January 3rd

Based on the book by L. Frank Baum
Adapted by Stephen L. Fredericks
Music & Lyrics by Derek Dibbern & David Spellman

Before the tale created by toy stores and corporations, L. Frank Baum, the author of The Wizard of Oz, wrote down his own magical biography of the man called Santa Claus. As a young foundling he is raised by the Immortals who care for the plants and animals. He is taught to respect nature and to care for its beauty, but as he grows older Claus yearns to know more of his “own kind.” He leaves the protection of the Immortals and finds that humans not only don’t respect nature, they are not too kind to each other either. He builds wonderful toys for the children of the village, but despite his good intentions, the evil Baron attempts to stop Claus from creating “useless distractions that stop progress!” Despite the support of his three magical friends who accompany Claus, this becomes a battle for the right to Imagine! This is Baum’s American mythology which celebrates the greatest gift we share with each other – love.

Snow White

This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.

Age Recommendation:
Entire Family
