DESCRIPTION:  Two compelling stories come together in this heartwarming play inspired by the famous editorial by Francis P. Church.  On Christmas Eve 1897 in New Your City, eight-year-old Virginia is left pondering whether or not Santa really exists after a series of unhappy events.  Meanwhile, a young newspaper 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 an unforgettable and cherished part of classic Christmas folklore.

SPECIAL NOTE:  This is a completely original script written by EVCT's artistic director Karen Rolston.  Five original songs were created for this production by local composer Kathie McMahon, as well as a sprinkling of favorite holiday tunes thrown in.  This is the world premiere of this production, created especially for East Valley Children's Theatre.  All cast members are between the ages of 8 and 18.
