Time:The present

Set:Single interior; a rundown, abandoned apartment

Story:Several orphans and some homeless kids they picked up along the way are hiding out from the matron of a children's home.  A burglar dressed as Santa Claus dupes a couple of them into helping him break into houses, causing the police to begin looking for the children as well. Who could possibly save the runaways and set things straight?  Ahh, you know who.
