The Story

As Christmas approaches the world of Frogtown Hollow, Emmet Otter and his Ma can only dream of buying each other gifts. So when a Christmas Eve talent contest is announced, both secretly enter hoping to win the prize money. In a heartwarming twist on The Gift of the Magi, Emmet and Ma risk all they have and end up with the greatest grand prize of all. Based on director Jim Henson’s television feature, this new theatrical adaptation features a lovable mix of actors and puppet characters from The Jim Henson Company and a toe-tapping score. It’s a classic holiday musical for all ages!
