Tinsel! The Musical
November 26 – December 20, 2011

By Li’l Buds Theatre Company

Telling the story of a nearsighted reindeer’s rise from life as a clumsy waitress in Frosty’s diner to being a famous recording artist, TINSEL! THE MUSICAL will put the star on top of your holiday season with its unique blend of country, jazz, blues and pop music.  TINSEL! THE MUSICAL (a sequel to last year’s FROSTY’S SHAKES ‘N’ DOGS which was a prequel to the previous year’s THOSE SILLY REINDEER!) teaches young audience members about the pitfalls of fame and the rewards of being true to yourself.
