Synopsis


Children's Theatre Company (Goderich, ON, Canada).

Dodge disappears after being sent to fetch more gold paint for the autumn leaves. She's really just trying to get out of the work of painting the leaves, but the other Elves assume that she has been waylaid by the winter Gnomes in an elaborate plot to create a new ice age. War is brewing between the Elves and the Gnomes. Holmstead, a character worthy of Arthur Conan Doyle, sets out with Swallow, following the clues the hapless Dodge has left behind, as Dodge herself tries desperately to think of a way to return and avert war without revealing her laziness and deception.
