    About the play: The solution to Santa’s production and labor problems arrives by way of the Brothers Grimm. Toy-making has restarted but the cure comes with some zany side effects.

    About the playwright: A retired high school principal, Coberly began writing comedy at age 80 for older adults using Readers Theatre. Nine years later, he has now written many shows designed to accommodate those with impaired physical abilities and he enjoys performing.
