Reviews from Past Producers

"On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Eight maids a burping, Seven socks a stinking, Six greasy ladles…"

There's trouble in Calendar Castle: The "Twelve Days of Christmas" are getting too big for their britches. They've all got agents, they're making demands, and worse, they're refusing to sing their signature song! Can Groundhog Day, the April Fool, and February 29th come to the rescue?

With a huge cast singing the funniest version of The Twelve Days of Christmas you've ever heard, this holiday romp is a sure-fire hit.
