Based on Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Visit from Saint Nicolas,” our story revolves around a young girl who rediscovers the magic element of the holidays. Isabella and her father have a Christmas Eve tradition of reading together before bedtime. However, this year marks a change that audiences will never expect! Being a tween now, Isabella prefers to focus on her music and social media over spending time with her dad. Following this, a group of mischievous sprites, possibly Santa’s elves, overhear their conversation and decide to intervene. The magical creatures whisk Isabella away to a wonderland, hoping to revive her holiday spirit and mend her relationship with her father. Naturally, seeing all of this unfold, her dad chases after her, and the adventure begins. Will they ever reunite? Be there to find out if they can mend the ties that have unraveled or if fate has other plans for their connection!

For those that celebrate any holiday during this season, I’m sure you will feel some connection to that idea,” cast member Isabelle Lacon shares about the production.
