Filled with outlandish characters, clever wordplays, campy satire, and fun songs, this musical helps kids learn that their fears, desires, and insecurities are similar to those from Biblical times. The story is based on the board game "Clue." A butler presents the children of this mystery mansion with a question: what is the gift that Christmas brings? Each child has been given a token as a clue, and they are to find more clues in each room of the house.
Each room's clue tells a part of the Christmas story and highlights a struggle of an individual's character. For example, a hook tells about the shepherds and their commonness; a rope shows the loneliness of the stable boy. The clues explain how the birth, death, resurrection of Christ can give us identity, joy, serenity, forgiveness, knowledge and hope for our future.
The unusual storyline does convey the Christmas story, and concludes that the present Christmas gives is the future with Christ. There are seven songs, one adult and seven children characters.
