Goldilocks wakes up Sleeping Beauty and transports her to the North Pole, and what follows is a madcap adventure with lovable and memorable characters, including Santa Claus himself, and a engaging variety of Christmas Elves!

N.B. While I have had students in grades three through twelve produce this play and all love it (including a noted national theater company and a dance company), I generally recommend it for 4th grade and up. Of course you are welcome to take it on for any level, revise it as you wish — but it might be a bit long or a tad too advanced for most 3rd grade classes. Otherwise, enjoy; it's lighthearted and delightful fun, and students everywhere have thoroughly enjoyed producing it!
