Dancer the Footloose Reindeer



A Musical Comedy for the Holidays.  Ralph the Elf Manager has made a terrible mistake.  Join Dancer the reindeer as he helps Ralph solve his problem while still getting ready for Christmas.


We always hear about “Rudolph THIS!” or “Rudolph THAT!”  Just because Rudolph saved the day ONCE…  Everybody tends to forget about the eight ORIGINAL reindeer.

Well?… They’re not putting up with it anymore and DANCER is championing the cause.  However, he may have taken things a bit too far.  His mischief gets out of hand and he manages to back himself into a corner.

Now, this wouldn’t be so bad except for the fact that he takes everybody down with him.  Especially Ralph, the Elf Manager.  Because of all the chaos, Ralph accidentally clobbers Santa on the head.  Santa winds out with amnesia and has no interest at all in climbing into a sleigh and delivering toys on Christmas Eve.  Ralph, of course, thinks his career will be over as soon as Santa regains his memory and realizes what he’s done.

In the middle of it all, Santa starts calling Mrs. Claus, “Fee Fee,” and all SHE wants to do is go on a long overdue vacation.

And all of this is being absorbed with total confusion by the two new little elves working in Santa’s Workshop.

Will Christmas happen this year?… Of course it does!   There’s ALWAYS a happy ending!  And the Music is delightful.

On one side of the stage there is an easy chair for Santa.

On the other side of the stage there is a long table with two chairs behind it.  The table is meant to give the appearance of an assembly line.  It is used by the elves as their “Quality Control” department.

On one side of the table there is a large basket which is full of toys.

On the other side of the table are two empty baskets.

Sitting on top of the table is a large “Instruction Manual”
