The Twelve Days of Christmas stars Helen Hayes Award Recipient Deidra LaWan Starnes (star of Charlotte's Web, 2011's Helen Hayes Award Winning Outstanding Production-TYA) as Shirley the Partridge, the detective in the case of the missing five golden rings.

Christmas celebrations are just around the corner and Shirley the Partridge has got some problems to solve! The French Hens are arguing, the six geese have flown to Florida for the winter and worst of all...someone has stolen the Five Golden Rings! What will happen to Christmas?
