An original holiday tale, set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Clarion at the turn of the millennium. The city's leaders have for the first time granted local school children the task of planning the traditional holiday show. Much of the show is staged in a classroom and there is even a scene with an on-stage school bus. As they plan for the December event, the students decide to learn more about Hanukkah and how Jews celebrate the season. They develop a goal of blending Christian and Jewish traditions into one big holiday event. Their quest for knowledge takes some amazing and awkward turns as eventually wisdom prevails with the great event taking place after all. Kids and adults of all ages perform together as students, teachers and parents demonstrate lessons in tolerance, international culture, and conflict resolution. The story ends in song with all on stage and off joining in this message of understanding and hope for our times.
