A true holiday delight. Striking 12 is a funny, musical look at the meaning of life. The hectic existence of a modern New Yorker is forever changed by the quirky retelling of the classic story, The Little Match Girl. Filled with exquisite music, Striking 12 challenges our ideas about what’s really important and gives us all a chance to laugh at ourselves and enjoy the reason for the season.   

Striking 12 is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide, 570 Seventh Avenue, Suite 2100, New York, NY 10018. (866) 378-9758.
