Additional information about our audition process
Mrs. Frump, director of the Peaceful Valley Orphanage has a Christmas surprise for her orphans. She has found each one a family to take them for Christmas. Frump borrows a bus to get them to their destinations and sets off, but without telling the busybodies of the Board of Trustees. Along the way they pick up a traveling troubadour trying to make it home to his fiancée - who may not be all that pleased to see him. The Christmas travelers are soon pursued by Sheriff Snodgrass and the busybodies, making for a funny, touching and memorable holiday adventure.
