Detailed Plot:
The Corporal, a toy soldier, marches on (TOY LAND MARCH) and tells the audience all about Toy Land, that it is where toys live before they are given to boys and girls (TOY LAND). Next we meet some of the other toys– all misfits in their own eyes: a teddy bear named Thomas, A raggedy doll with green hair, a top that gets dizzy, and a VERY grouchy, grumbly jack-in-a-box. The Corporal has his hands full trying to keep the depressed toys optimistic that a little boy or girl would want them for a toy– and at the same time trying to keep the jack-in-a-box’s pessimism from spreading (THINK OF WHAT YOU’VE GOT). The toys decide to have a Christmas party and not invite the jack-in-a-box. After a Christmas carol sing-along, the Corporal helps the raggedy doll realize that green is a pretty color for hair. He helps the bear discover that the initials of his name spells T.E.D.E. (Ted E. Bear). The top discovers that she just needs to practice a little more (I’M SPINNING). When the jack-in-the-box discovers that they had a party without him, he threatens to tell Santa that the toys don’t want to go to children this year. The toys reveal to Jack that he is not very nice. This sinks into the jack-in-a-box so he promises to not say anything to Santa. Santa arrives to take all the toys to little boys and girls– except the Corporal and Jack. Corporal is devastated until Jack helps him realize that the reason they are staying behind is because they are Santa’s toys (THE BIGGEST KID IN THE WORLD)! We know they will become good friends as they prepare for the next batch of toys to arrive. (TOY LAND - FINALE)

The Land of Toys on the night before Christmas. This is where toys are kept until they are wanted by a child. Jack in the Box is setting, ever-present somewhere prominent, perhaps UCR or UCL. As far as colors go, I would suggest VERY colorful. Perhaps the ultimate kids playroom. OR, you may elect to go with subdued colors for the set and let the characters be the major bright colors. It doesn’t matter to me as long as the show itself is colorful, bright and fun.

Short Description:
We know how happy a toy is when it belongs to a little boy or girl-- but what happens to a toy before that? It lives in Toy Land, where all toys are kept until they're given to a child. It’s Christmas Eve and the new toys arrive. The Toy Soldier must make sure they are ready to be taken to kids all over the world by Santa. The Raggedy Doll, Teddy Bear and Top are ready to go— but the Jack-in-the-Box is causing all sorts of problems. Can the Toy Soldier get everything settled in time for Santa’s arrival? Sure, but it will take some quick thinking!
