Anything is possible this season at New Britain Youth Theater! From a flight to the North Pole to a Fairy Godmother’s magic to the dust speck world of Whoville!
By Denise Clapsaddle
Three children get themselves on Santa’s naughty list, and it takes sneaking to the North Pole and the help of every good elf there to set things right and uncover a mischievous plot. Written by local playwright Denise Clapsaddle (A Children’s Christmas Carol) this world premiere of a holiday play will include familiar Christmas songs!
