Summer starts in November, Easter's in February and Christmas is in July! The calendar days are all in a tizzy. The New Year better fix this mess and fix it quick before Father Time gets involved.

What do you do when the Elves have the flu?

Do you know what to do when the Elves have the flu? I haven't a clue, I wish I knew! And this is no ordinary flu. It's Elven flu. The Elves can't eat, they can't sleep and they certainly can't work. And with Christmas around the corner, how will the toys get made? How will this sickie scrape get solved?

Prop List

Christmas in July

The Calendar. This should be an accordion file stuffed with papers so that when New and Farrel fight over it, the papers can fly out. It should be decorative and festive., New Year’s Contract. This should be a huge book. Something quite oversized. It could say, “CONTRACT” on the front.
