Perfect for a huge cast at all skill levels.

Christmas Eve approaches. Everything is ready to roll at the North Pole. But not everyone is happy for Santa and his "Ho ho ho!"

Plots and schemes are being hatched deep inside the mountain. Someone wants to kidnap Santa! That means no toys for good little girls and boys. But who would want such unhappiness at Christmas? And will their plan succeed?

Based on the story of the same name by L. Frank Baum, best-known for The Wizard of Oz.
