Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus
Inspired by a simple, poignant letter written over 100 years ago.
Virginia O'Hanlon is an eight-year-old girl looking for the answers to whether Santa Claus is real by writing a letter to the editor of the New York Sun in 1897. A veteran editor, Frank P. Church knows the girl deserves a truthful answer. Based on real events, the play is narrated by the editor of the Sun and puts the wonder back into Christmas from the views of a child and adult, making you believe that Santa Claus "exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist."
By Andrew J. Fenady. Based on the teleplay by Val DeCrowl and Andrew J. Fenady.
