A prequel to CHARLOTTE SWEET. Part Dickens, part Gilbert and Sullivan, part Fractured Fairy Tale, this family operetta evolves through mock-Christmas carols. It centers on Ludlow Ladd, a poor young orphan in Victorian Liverpool. It's Christmas night and his birthday, as Ludlow wanders the streets, searching for a home. The eccentric Grimbles take him to their house, already crammed with animals, plants, and Prudence, their bratty daughter. After annoying the Grimbles, Ludlow is left alone with their Christmas tree. The tree turns into the magical Misssus Pinecones, who whisks him to the Land of Yuletime Cheer where dreams can come true—resulting in a perversely sweet holiday miracle.

 

What the Critics Said...

"Musical of the week. A jolly romp." - Jason Teran, Show Business

"A fascinating prize. Plays off all the gooey sentiment that has been built up around the modern Christmas in story and song. Energetic, charming fun." - David Zimmerman, The Rockford Register

"Really wonderful!" - Bill Thompson, Literary Manager, Actors Theatre of Louisville.
