...and a Groundhog in a Pear Tree

...and a Groundhog in a Pear Tree

book & lyrics by Lindsay Pricemusic by Kristin Gauthier

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.

This was a perfect Christmas play for middle school students. There are 20 roles and every one of them has at least a few lines and a moment to shine.
