The plot of the Play:

Sneezy (the elf)  accidentally comes across a memo from Blitzen that causes a panic in the elves.   The memo reminds the reindeer about the meeting to discuss what they are getting Santa  for Christmas.  Sneezy realizes that she and the other elves haven't gotten Santa anything for Christmas yet.  She doesn't want Santa to be disappointed.  She and the other elves are determined to come up with the perfect gift.

The toys overhear the elves discussing their dilemma. Realizing that they don't have a gift for Santa either, they to find themselves in the mad gift search. The elves, reindeer and toys begin competing with each other to find the perfect gift.  The plot thickens as the crew try to out do each other.  Will they all find a gift for Santa?  Will they find the true meaning of Christmas?
