The Summit Playhouse Kaleidoscope Theatre for Youth and the Pixie Dust Players proudly present Yes Virginia, The Musical!  Directed and choreographed by Millburn High School senior, Lindsay Maron with Music Direction by Rich Lovallo and featuring talented kids and teens from our area, this charming show promises to bring Christmas cheer to all!  
 
Every year the beloved animated special based on Virginia's story touches new audiences. Now, this holiday classic has been adapted into a magical stage show written specifically for school children. New songs by Macy's Emmy Award-winning songwriters, a heartwarming story and an unforgettable cast of characters all come together in this new theatrical event.
 
 
Does Santa Claus really exist? That's a question kids have been asking for generations. In 1897, one precocious girl named Virginia O'Hanlon was determined to find an answer. Her letter to The New York Sun prompted one of the most famous newspaper editorials of all time, and inspired future generations to believe in the holiday spirit.
