Today was the big day! It was Christmas Concert night at the North Pole. All the young elves were so excited to perform. Mrs. Claus and I had great seats right up front.
The play was about a present that the elves forgot to make. At the last minute, they discover the mistake.
In the play, the elves race around to get the doll made in time. The actor elves bump into each other in their rush. They do flips as they bounce toys back and forth. I was afraid they were going to drop them. But they always managed to catch them JUST in time! Fantastic!
The little actor elves each play the role of one of my workshop elves. They captured their silly habits perfectly. Hilarious!
Then the set changed to a family room. A little girl named Sarah lived there. Mouse the Littlest Elf was Sarah.
Then everything was very quiet.
Suddenly, “Santa” came shooting down the pretend-chimney. Soot flew everywhere. No one could see anything!
Everyone was trying to see who was playing Santa. He was all covered in dirt from the chimney. Finally he said, “Och, what are you all gawking at anyway!”
Everyone cheered. It was Scunner! Scunner the Grumpy Elf was dressed up like me! Fabulous!
Well Scunner, I mean “Santa”, started laying out presents.
That was when “Sarah” snuck on stage to see “Santa” filling her stocking.
She tapped him on the shoulder.
She scared him so badly he just about jumped out of his troosers! Then “Santa” pretended to fall backward over the couch.
Well Santa could not finish his job now. So “Sarah” decided to help.
She put out the rest of the presents. She even ate one of the cookies.
Then “Sarah” noticed the paint was still wet on her pretty doll’s face.
That was when “Santa” popped up from behind the couch. He promised to never forget Sarah’s present again. They end the show by sharing the last cookie. Bravo!
It was a wonderful show! I am so proud of the young elves. What a great way to celebrate the Christmas season!
