A Musical Christmas Show for Schools and Drama Groups covering PSHE topics exploring the issues of Bullying and Teamwork.

A heartwarming musical full of fun, friendship, teamwork, hope and magic dust.

Welcome to the Elves and Mrs Wimple’s toy shop, home to all the abandoned toys of Christmas past. It’s the job of Mrs Wimple and Santa’s elves to repair all the neglected toys, ready to be delivered to new loving homes on Christmas morning. Join everyone at the toy shop in the midst of a Christmas crisis. It seems technology is leading to the death of traditional toys. More toys than ever before have been cast out with the rubbish. Unwanted reject toys are being delivered to the shop by the sack load and it’s almost Christmas Eve. The elves are in an unelfy state, Mrs Wimple is burying her head in the stuffing and time is running out.

Just when everyone thought things couldn’t get any worse; the selfish, stone-hearted Miss Penny Drops arrives banging on the door, with her slapstick side-kicks. She’s an empire to think about and no one will stand in her way, especially not a toy shop full of little green people and useless reject toys. However, Miss Penny Drops is about to learn a valuable lesson, to never ever underestimate any one or anything, as all the reject toys pull together to try and save the day, the toy shop and Christmas.
