VIDEO: First Look at Clips From Pride Films and Plays' AMERICA'S BEST OUTCAST TOY

Pride Films and Plays present their holiday production - AMERICA'S BEST OUTCAST TOY - AN ODDBALL HOLIDAY REALITY MUSICAL, penned by composer Cindy O'Connor and bookwriter/lyricist Larry Todd Cousineau.

The new musical imagines what later happened to some outcast toys rescued by a certain famous reindeer. After becoming huge celebrities in America, they are reunited to compete in a series of challenges where they must sing, model, design fashion, outwit/outplay/outlast and bake cakes, and of course, dance for their lives, all to prove that they are AMERICA'S BEST or FAVORITE, or LEAST OBJECTIONABLE, or something! The audience will actually determine the results with their votes, meaning every night can be a whole new show!
