This is the Victor Herbert Renaissance Project's One Act fully staged version of Victor Herbert's Babes In Toyland which opened in New York City in March 1995 in Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. The original 3 hour extravaganza opened in New York City at the Majestic Theatre in the Knickerbocker Theatre on October 13, 1903. Again this is a one act running approximately 55 minutes -- allowing you to easily schedule two performances a day. All 19 musical numbers utilized are from the original score.
Plot - Mother Goose has a wonderful school in the Old Lady's Shoe with a class full of your favorite Mother Goose characters. Tom, Tom the Piper's Son has a crush on BoPeep who keeps losing her sheep. Other than that there are no real problems in Toyland until Silas Barnaby and his friends Roderigo and Gonzorga show up demanding the money for the mortgage they hold on The Old Lady's Shoe. Silas wants the money or the land until he spies BoPeep and decides she "might do very well." When BoPeep agrees, Tom, Tom is a bit upset and decides to do something rather drastic to old Barnaby before he and BoPeep run off to the Creepy Forest. Everyone ends up captured one way or another with Mother Goose coming to the rescue with a most curious "band". This one act version is just the right length to 1) keep little ones entranced; 2) allow for two shows in one day; and involve your local high school band in a most unusual way (which will sell lots of tickets). Lots of wonderful chorus work and each person in the chorus is a Mother Good character.
This score contains 19 musical numbers and all the best favorites: “Toyland,” “I Can't Do That Sum,” "Song of the Poet,” "March of the Toys," and much more.
