Twelve-year-old Maria helps her father, Joe, sell Christmas trees on Christmas Eve as Carolers sing and last minute shoppers rush about. Maria falls in love with a beautiful small tree and convinces her father to set it aside for her even though they already have a tree at home. After all, Maria’s mother who passed away always decorated two trees, one for inside and one for the porch. It isn’t easy to sell trees on Christmas Eve since most people already have one. But Maria has a knack for selling with a contagious enthusiasm that works on just about everyone…except Mr. Dalton, a lonely and disgruntled old man she likens to “Scrooge.” Little Charlie stops by in his oversized boots to admire the trees and tells Maria that his brother, Jack, promised to buy him a tree but he’s “in the army”. Jack is really Charlie’s Big Brother and that tree Maria saved for herself?well, it might be the last Christmas tree that can fulfill a promise made by Mr. Dalton’s grandson who just happens to be away serving in the National Guard. $10 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $50 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
