Play script. By Victor Herbert, updated and adapted by Ken Holamon. All of the glorious music and fabulous fantasy characters of the classic Victor Herbert creation, in a bright contemporary version. Two acts. 1 Village Square and 5 outdoor locales. 12 men, 13 women with multiple casting opportunities; 2 baby lambs, a mongrel dog, a stuffed parrot. Victor Herbert's unforgettable tunes accompany Contrary Mary, Tom-Tom, and their friends, as they journey from Mother Goose Village to Toyland, seeking the Master Toymaker to save their home. They reach Toyland, despite the bumbling villany of Barnaby's comic henchmen, just in time to help the Toymaker save Christmas around the world. To the timeless "March of the Toy Soldiers," all of the fabulous fantasy characters and lively toy soldiers sing and dance this joyful celebration of the spirit of giving.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The truly evil Uncle Barnaby returns to the page in this adaptation from Brammer. The original operetta, now almost 100 years old, has lost some sophistication this time around, but the story still thrills even as the illustrations falter. Barnaby, who has just given Old Mother Hubbard the boot from her shoe for failing to pay rent on time, threatens the Widow Piper with the same fate unless she can convince the vivacious Contrary Mary to wed him. After a series of perfectly despicable acts on the part of Barnaby, the old devil finally gets his comeuppance. Rarely do the illustrations achieve any sort of animation to match the action in the story; instead, they are stiffly posed and muddily reproduced, and none of the characters will take hold in children's imaginations.
