The Gift

A mountain of discarded wrapping paper.
A lonely child with an active imagination.
It’s often the cardboard boxes, not the gifts inside that are the most fun.
Is the true gift the joy that can come from the imagination?

This festive show will ignite a playfulness, inspiring children and their families to find new games together when it’s their turn to open gifts!
