Christopher Gattelli (who co-wrote the libretto with Timothy A. McDonald) directs and choreographs the production based on Jim Henson's classic holiday favorite. Paul Williams provides songs. "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."

Daniel Reichard stars (as Emmet Otter) with Cass Morgan (Ma Otter), Alan Campbell (Pa Otter) and Kate Wetherhead (Jane). The cast also features Stephen Bienski, Tyler Bunch, Kevin Covert, Leo Daignault, Colin Hanlon, Jeff Hiller, Lisa Howard, Anney McKilligan, Sheri Sanders, Robb Sapp, James Silson, David Stephens and Daniel Torres.
