The Magical Toy Shop

June 8th & 9th

Act 2:  The Magical Toy Shop

A world-famous toymaker has created exquisite dancing dolls in his magic toy shop. The dolls perform various dance routines for the prospective customers. 

Then the shopkeeper introduces his most sophisticated dancing dolls, a pair of Pierrot dolls. Their dance is so enchanting that one family decides to buy one doll while the other family buys the other doll. The deals are made and paid for, the dolls are placed in separate boxes and collection is arranged for the next day.

Darkness descends, but during the night, the dolls magically come to life and start dancing. They are upset that the two Pierrot dolls are going to be separated, and a plot is hatched by the magical Blue Fairy doll to hide them before the customers return in the morning.

When the shop opens the next day and the customers come in to pick up their dolls, they discover that the Pierrot dolls are no longer there. The customers, not knowing about the secret life of the dolls, blame the shop owner and attack him and his assistant. In the ensuing fracas, the dolls come to the shopkeeper's rescue and chase the guests out. Driven out of the shop, the customers watch incredulously through the window as the happy dolls and the shopkeeper dance merrily inside with the re-united Pierrot Dolls.
