New York City, 1897. Christmas is almost here, and eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon is beside herself with excitement. Suddenly, though, she finds herself facing a crisis of belief when her friends tell her Santa Claus is a myth. Filled with doubt, Virginia asks everyone she knows to tell her the truth: Is Santa Claus real or not? Still unsure and dissatisfied, she finally takes her father's advice and famously writes a letter to the New York Sun newspaper for a definitive answer to that most crucial of questions. Funny and heartwarming, this holiday play will delight audiences of all ages.
