When a group of young orphans are convinced that Christmas isn’t coming, it is up to a couple of Santa’s elves to try and save the day and bring the spirit of the holiday back into existence. Combine that with music, sung by an angel choir of children, it will be sure to light your heart aglow and get you into the spirit of the holidays! This amazing show was written by Bryan Riess, the talented co-director for our children’s theater productions.
