This charming story is inspired by the classic Clement C. Moore poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas”.  Four days before Christmas, and writer Clement Moore must come up with a holiday feature story, but he has writer’s block.  Besides that, he must work at home among his five children who are understandably very excited for St. Nicholas to arrive.  Clement’s frustration mounts and the magic begins…bells, toys that come to life, and dancing Sugar Plum Fairies all conspire to help Clement as this classic poem comes to life.  With traditional Holiday carols, exquisite new music, and a visit from St. Nick himself this fresh telling of the most popular Christmas poem ever written will delight audiences of all ages.
