Actors Community Theatre to present radio play December 1st & 2nd

Actors Community Theatre (ACT) is excited to announce its upcoming performances of “Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus” a Radio Play by Andrew J. Fenady.

The performances will be held on December 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center Black Box Theatre. Those who attend are asked to enter through door number 11.

The performances will be presented free of charge. Tickets will be available at the door on the night of the performances beginning at 6:30 PM and will be limited to 100 tickets per performance. Tickets will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.

In Yes Virginia, a young girl writes a letter to the editor of the New York Sun.

“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 editor, assigns Frank Church—a reporter on the verge of self-destruction—the task of answering Virginia’s question. Church’s quest and reply have become one of the world’s most quoted and beloved editorials.

“We are very fortunate to live in a community that supports the arts, and as a thank you, we are excited to offer this performance free of charge,” ACT President Liz Book said. “In lieu of charging admission for this wonderful show, we will be collecting monetary donations and items for Dove Recovery House.”
