DECEMBER 8-17, 2023 – THE MAN WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS
Music, Lyrics, and Book by Ron Lytle
Muscial Direction by Rebecca Wright
“The Man Who Saved Christmas” is loosely based on the true story of A.C. Gilbert (the inventor of The Erector Set inventor.) Set in 1917, as America is embroiled in the first World War, this ‘new old-fashioned’ crowd-pleaser focuses on Gilbert’s battle with the U.S. government as it attempts to ban toy sales during the holiday season.
Added to the mix: A secretary who keeps her heart on ice and a visiting reporter determined to thaw it out; the nefarious Iago of the toy factory, Mister Dixon; Gilbert’s loving wife Mary; and the Gilberts’ precocious niece Ellen, who untangles the myriad complications in which the young lovers–and the Toy Tycoon–find themselves.
Boasting 16 new songs that instantly feel like old friends, this is the holiday show that has left reviewers scrambling for superlatives. “The Man Who Saved Christmas” is the new show that regional and community theatres have been wishing for–and now it has arrived.
Auditions coming October 1 & 2, 2023. Role for 3 women, 4 men, 4 children, and many extras!
