Jimmy and the Star Angel • A Christmas Musical Adventure

Jimmy and the Star Angel • A Christmas Musical Adventure

Book by Jerry Robbins

Music and Lyrics by Jeffrey Gage

The miracles of Christmas are in the small things, the things we take for granted; the things that have become family traditions. However, it seems that miracles are in short supply this Christmas and Jimmy and his sister Samantha, are both missing their father after his tragic death since last Christmas. Each child deals with their loss in their own, not-entirely-healthy-way. After Jimmy breaks an ornament, he and his sister are magically transported to the perilous world of their own Christmas tree, as they race to find the Star Angel to change them back to their real size before morning sunbeams freeze them into ornaments. A dynamic and contemporary, Broadway-style score propels the characters forward to a positive conclusion.
