A great afternoon with fun for all
Tinker's Toy Shop is a family-run store that is feeling the pains of low sales. They are at the point of closing their doors--that is, until they answer a newspaper ad from Santa Claus himself, who is looking for toy makers to help with the huge supply of toys needed for his annual visit. The entire staff works hard to meet the strict criteria to be one of Santa's chosen stores. By the end of the show, the family learns that Christmas is not just about gifts; it's about love an understanding. We encourage you to share your Christmas memories and wishes through letters to Santa, read on stage during the performance. Remember to bring your camera to take pictures with Santa and Mama after the show!
We had forty friends and family join us this afternoon
