Cast List


We'd like to wrap this musical in gold paper with spangles all over it and attach a card saying Merry Christmas! Remember the wonderful Victor Herbert music? Remember the lyrics? "Toyland, toyland, little girl and boy land." There are wonderful characters: Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary; Tom-Tom, the Piper's Son; Jack and Jill; Little Miss Muffet; Wicked Uncle Barnaby who runs the toy shop (and his comic-ruffian assistants, Roderigo and Gonzorgo) and can turn children into dolls and sell them for gold; and lovable Jane and Alan who are his next victims. The adaptation uses the original music of Victor Herbert and much of Glen MacDonough's libretto and lyrics.
