Drifty’s Naughty or Nice List By Paul Deiss

Saturdays, Dec. 7, 14, 21, 10:15 AM & 1 PM ~ Optional pizza lunch after performance

The "Naughty or Nice" list is missing, and Private Ivan Einstein is on the case. Drifty the Snowman gets to help investigate, which means everyone ends up a suspect – even Mrs. Claus. Feeling left out, Drifty then tries to get himself on the list of suspects. Pepita the Elf manages to defuse the situation by challenging Ivan to a dance-off, which is a bit unfair since her tap shoes are enchanted with Santa's magic.

It’s Springtime in the barnyard, and Chicken Little has just found out that the sky didn’t really fall – that was just an acorn that hit him on the head last Autumn… and now that acorn is growing into something much bigger. In fact, the entire barnyard is full of growing things: baby plants and baby animals, too. Join Chicken Little and his friends on the farm for some fun!
