Laime Inventions, A Vernian Comedy Play Perusal



A Comedic Play.  In 1910, Ogden Laime wants to be an inventor just like his idol, Jules Verne.  Although he tries and tries, will Ogden ever be able to break away from the shadow of Verne and invent on his own?


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.
