A backstage story of Christmas dreams more than coming true.
When Noel hears that everyone in her ballet class is going to get a part in The Nutcracker, she imagines herself in a starring role. But her teacher, Miss Olga, has other ideas. She casts stuck-up Mia as the dancing cookie doll and announces: “Noel will be a tree.”
Noel tries every trick in the book to wrangle a better part for herself, but nothing works. Then, on opening night, one of life’s little surprises intervenes, and it’s Noel the tree who helps Mia discover the true meaning of “show biz.”
