Gabe Messenger has a unique essay assignment from his English teacher: to interview people and ask them about their favorite Christmas memory or tradition...where it took place, when it happened, and why it remains so special. So Gabe and his dad head to Tan N. Baum's Christmas Tree Farm - run by Tan, his brother, Dan, and their sister, Nan - which is sure to be a terrific place to gather stories from people coming to buy their Christmas trees. While at Tan N. Baum's, Gabe bumps into two school friends, Holly and Ivy, and, together, they interview a crazy mix of characters, hear many different tales of Christmas, and make some very special memories of their own. This dynamic musical, written by VBS composer Jeff Slaughter, is packed with terrific songs, and the drama provides opportunities for an intergenerational performance!
