The children in the play were amazing. We came to the play to see one special little girl perform Olivia Lombardi. She did a great job! The children is what makes the play so special as well as Santa.

The kids that were in the production we saw were absolutely great. So much talent in such young people. Congratulations to the kids -- and more importantly to the parents. Super job.

And yes, Zoe, Although I haven't been a kid for a good many years, I too dress up my dog for Halloween and Christmas pictures to give to the nursing home residents and the 1st grade class we visit regularly. She also attends church, and has a beautiful red velvet dress with a big white bow she will be wearing for the Christmas Eve Service! Have a great run, and a wonderful holiday!
