One of the most loved board games of all time comes to life on the Derby Dinner stage!  It’s Christmastime and Nick and Noelle receive a ticket to play a special edition game of Candyland in a magical world.  As they play the game, they meet many colorful characters along the way: Prewitt P. Peppermint, Betty Butterscotch, Captain Cookie, and Holly the Jolly Rancher.  They do all they can to beat the selfish Lord Licorice to the end and win the game.  This interactive musical will take you on a journey full of sweet surprises!

The book, music, and lyrics for CHRISTMAS IN CANDYLAND was written by Heather Paige Folsom.  Derby Dinner’s production is under the direction of Tina Jo Wallace. All public performances feature a kid friendly menu and are one hour in length.  This production is most suitable for ages 3 – 12.  Santa will visit every table before each show!
