A Christmas Without Christmas • Musical TYA

A Christmas Without Christmas • Musical TYA

a Musical Christmas Tale for young people by James Arrington

Music and Lyrics by Lisa Radulovich

 Another year. Another Christmas. Another crisis. Or is it?

Santa is not happy with the way many children behave, even though his list of the “good children” is getting shorter. He decides to go on strike. There will be no delivery of toys this year. Mrs. Claus, the Elves, and the Toys put together a plan to get Santa back in his sleigh – and just in time for Christmas Eve, well, something happens! 8 tuneful original songs decorate this funny and fast moving script.
