Yes Virginia The Musical is the heartwarming story of a little girl who taught the world to believe.
Yes Virginia tells the story behind one of the world’s most famous letters to the editor of the New York Sun. In 1897, an 8-year-old girl named Virginia O’Hanlon wrote to the editors of the paper, asking whether Santa Claus was real. The unsigned editorial printed in the Sept. 21 edition of the Sun has become one of the most reprinted editorials in history. Using prose-filled, positive philosophy and bold belief, the editorial writer affirmed the existence of the jolly old elf and how he can be seen in the love and generosity that exists during the holidays.
Music is by Wesley Whatley, with Book and Lyrics by William Schermerhorn. This stage production was adapted from the animated special and storybook by Chris Plehal by Macy’s Department Stores, who then, made it available to schools and community theatres across the nation, royalty-free.
