Something strange is happening in the North Pole – Dasher and Dancer are having trouble flying, Santa’s chimney training exercises aren’t going as planned, and Rudolph’s nose is not very bright…or shiny! When Santa, Albert, and their good friend Sprinkles discover that the Christmas Magic Tank is on the fritz, they’re worried they’ll be stranded at the North Pole and won’t be able to deliver presents for Christmas!

Can Albert and Sprinkles come to Santa’s rescue and work together to fix the Christmas Magic Tank in time for the most exciting event of the season? With a clatter and a bang (and a whole lot of mischief!), Albert and Sprinkles do their part to fix what’s broken, but it takes more than two spirited elves to refill the fixed-up tank with Christmas magic! Can you help?

For more than 30 years, it has been a beloved Bachman's tradition to host an annual holiday play at Bachman’s flagship store on Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis. Although this year looks different, we are keeping the tradition and magic alive, virtually! All ages are welcome to watch online on our Facebook or Instagram pages at 10 a.m. on Saturday mornings, November 21 through December 19. Each morning will include a live broadcast that invites you to interact with Santa and Albert, an exciting video that shares a new chapter of our Christmas magic story, and the chance to download an activity at to help you get ready for the holidays in your own home. You’re also encouraged to email to tell Santa, Albert, and Sprinkles what you’re doing to help fill the Christmas Magic Tank!
