ACT1 Theater Presents YES, VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS, 11/27-12/19
ACT1 Theater presents Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus from November 27 through December 19.
"Dear Editor, is there a Santa Claus?" - a question innocently asked by eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon. Christmas was coming and all was Right with the world...until her friends mischieviously told her the "facts" about Old Saint Nick. To whom could she turn for the truth? Not her father, a doctor who is always fighting old world superstitions. Not her teacher, who is fed up with Christmas even before it has arrived. So Virginia writes a letter to the editor of the New York Sun. Her father always said, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Her letter falls into the hands of Francis P. Church, a veteran editorial writer who seeks to cut away at lies with his razor sharp wit. He knows that there is no avoiding the question. He must answer, and answer truthfully. And so he begins his reply which was to become one of the most memorable and cherished editorials in newspaper history.
