Yes Virginia There is a Santa Claus

Large Mixed Cast

Andrew J. Fenady from Val DeCrow & Andrew J. Fenady Price: $9.99

Inspired by a simple, poignant letter written over 100 years ago by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon to the editor of the New York Sun and by the timeless editorial response printed on the front page of the Sun

Virginia wondered and wrote: "Dear Editor, I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus

Papa says if you see it in the Sun, it's so. Please tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus?"

Ed Mitchell, the Sun's editor, gives the assignment of answering Virginia's letter to Frank Church who, until his wife and baby died last Christmas Eve, was the Sun's best and most dependable reporter

Yes Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus is a play for young and old, magically reaffirming life's highest beauty and joy "the eternal light with which childhood fills the world"
