Babes In Toyland holds the distinction of being the most frequently produced title in Victor Herbert’s illustrious repertoire. This 1903 masterpiece is not just a journey through a whimsical world; it’s a profound exploration of choice, consequence, and the narratives we craft for ourselves. As the Mott/Herbert rendition suggests, “we all write our own stories and decide how they will end by the choices we make.”
Audiences can anticipate an evening filled with iconic melodies that have stood the test of time. From the enchanting “I Can’t Do The Sum” and the nostalgic “Toyland” to the rousing “March of the Toys” — Herbert’s most performed composition — every song is a testament to Herbert’s unmatched musical genius.
This production takes attendees on a magical journey along side beloved Mother Goose characters. Join Tom, Tom the Piper’s Son; BoPeep; Mary, Quite Contrary; Humpty Dumpty; Old King Cole, and many others as they unite against the dastardly Silas Barnaby in a bid to save their cherished school situated in the Old Woman’s Shoe.
