“Dear Santa” Opens Dec 2nd

A portion of the 22 member “Dear Santa” cast take a picture with Director Ann Harper (back row middle)

 Composed of a number of short scenes, “Dear Santa” ranges from the hilarious to touching. Written by Rob Frankel, and directed by Ann Harper, this production shows Santa from various viewpoints – from a child who alphabetizes her Christmas list and sends it out in August, to children at various stages of belief…and disbelief! Santa and his helpers shed light on many of the mysteries surrounding him, including why you don’t always get the gift you ask for, how Santa delivers all those gifts in one night, how he finds children spending Christmas away from home, and how his power transcends the boundaries of race, gender and religion. Of course, sometimes being Santa isn’t
all that great – your helpers fight over which one is best and occasionally you get arrested for shoplifting by those of little faith. But in the end, it is the faith of the many that sustains Santa. 

“Dear Santa” opens December 2nd and runs through December 17th.  Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:00 pm, while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 pm. Doors open one half hour prior to curtain.
