(NETCONG, NJ) -- The Growing Stage, The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, is celebrateing the holidays with The Land of Forgotten Toys weekends through December 18, 2022. This charming tale follows Grace, a brilliant young woman with big dreams and a passion for astronomy, who is stuck at a dead-end job at a toy store three days before Christmas. When she is transported to the Land of Forgotten Toys, everything changes. Christmas is in trouble—and it’s up to Grace and her rag-tag crew of forgotten and broken toys to save it! Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

The Land of Forgotten Toys has music and lyrics by Dylan MarcAurele with book and lyrics by Jennifer Enchin and Jaclyn Enchin, additional lyrics by Mike Ross and the story and characters by Larry Little. This production is directed by Danny Campos, TGS’s Director of Marketing, with choreography by Noelle Cappuzzo and musical direction by Laura Petrie.

The Land of Forgotten Toys features the talents of 18 professional and youth performers in the cast: Jeorgi Smith (Pinkalicious) of Denville, NJ, as Grace; Jessica Stanzek (Matilda) of Clifton, NJ, as Nikki; Donald Danford (Babes in Toyland) of Rockaway, NJ, as Schmedrick; Lori B.
