YES, VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS
Directed by Tim Waite
There are roles for three women, four men, and four girls (ages 8 to 11).
This heartwarming play is inspired by the famous newspaper editorial, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."
On Christmas Eve, 1897, eight-year-old Virginia is left pondering whether or not Santa really exists
after a series of unhappy events.
Meanwhile, a young nrewspaper editor also struggles against tough holiday times
as he is faced with losing his job if he can't find his writer's voice by morning.
Even though they don't know each other, the spirit of Christmas is about to bring these people together,
creating in the process an unforgettable and cherished part of classic Christmas folklore.

THE GIFT OF THE MAGI
Directed by Linda Grames
There are roles for seven women and four men (age 18 and older).
A heart-warming romantic comedy, narrated by Christmas carolers ( who double as other characters),
that tells the story of Della and Jim who are much in love but too poor to give each other proper Christmas gifts.
A strange twist of fate leads them to find the perfect gifts for each other but at an unexpected cost.
The couple learns about the importance of the gift of love in this adaptation of the O. Henry classic.
