Presenting Victor Herbert’s instantly recognizable “March of the Toys” with all-new hilarious lyrics! This festive feature reads like a wacky to-do list of holiday preparations with non-stop punchlines from the choir and a couple cameo soloists. Your fullest sounds, brightest faces, and biggest personalities are on full display with this theatrical celebration of the season. Get ready to giggle when handheld percussion instruments and sound effects (played by choristers) introduce a parade of unwanted out-of-town guests. It’s a crazy cast of characters and Christmas chaos straight out of a comedic holiday movie. Mark Hayes provides a showy piano reduction and a grand orchestration (on the SoundTrax or SoundPax) from fanfare to finish.
