ShenanArts invites you and the family to share the Christmas spirit with us as we present a streamed staged radio play production of the Christmas tale, "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus". In this unique style of theatre, actors take on multiple roles, perform music, and make all of the sound effects themselves using their voices or objects in creative ways. This is an online streaming production that you can watch from the comfort of your own home!
Based on a true story from 1897, this touching play celebrates the magic of Christmas and believing in the unseen.
A young girl named Virginia O’Hanlon gets teased by her friends for believing in Santa Claus. Wishing for an answer, she asks her father if Santa exists. Unsure of how to answer this unexpected question, he suggests that she write to his favorite newspaper, The New York Sun to get her answer. So, she sends a letter to them hoping to get the truth. Ed Mitchell, the editor, assigns Frank Church—a reporter who is going through a difficult time—the task of answering Virginia's question.
In response, Church eventually writes a touching reply about Christmas magic that will be loved for years to come.
