Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

THE HIGHVIEW ARTS CENTER PRESENTS
Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus
A play by Jamie Gorski
December 2-11, 2022 at Highview Arts Center 

Louisville, KY – Highview Arts Center is delighted to present Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus by Jamie Gorski. Based on true events, eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York’s Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21, 1897. Yes, Virginia follows two individuals on their journey to find if Santa Claus is indeed, real. Eight-year-old Virginia is left pondering whether or not Santa really exists after a series of unhappy events. Meanwhile, a young newspaper editor also struggles against tough holiday times as he is faced with losing his job if he can't find his writer's voice by morning. Even though they don't know each other, the spirit of Christmas is about to bring these people together, creating in the process an unforgettable and cherished part of classic Christmas folklore. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history’s most reprinted newspaper editorial.
