Can you really wish for snow? Are there really dogs that can talk, sing and even conduct the audience? Can a snowman sing and dance? What is a Bim-Bam-Bella-Tinkie-Trixie-I'm-Your-Friend doll? Is Santa Claus sometimes actually a Santa Claus? And where did the recipe for the Christmas cookies go?
Answers to all these questions are provided by the musical "Die Weihnachtsbäckerei" (The Christmas Bakery), in which the three siblings Jonas, Paul and Emily experience quite a few adventures together with their dog Muffin.
When their parents can't come home because of a snowstorm, the three are left on their own to bring the home Christmas bakery to life, as the grandparents are expected the next morning. Of course, the refrigerator is empty, the recipe is gone and there is no money in the house. Therefore, the siblings have to come up with quite a few things to get to their goal.
Will they manage to surprise their parents with wonderful cookies? Or will they get lost in the forest on the way to the Christmas market? Why is the neighbor Mrs. Schnitzenbacher always on their heels? And where has Muffin gone again?
The story is a turbulent tale of the pre-Christmas season, embedded with 20 of the most beautiful winter and Christmas songs by Rolf Zuckowski - including, of course, the well-known title song.
