In 1897, one precocious girl named Virginia O’Hanlon was determined to find out if Santa Claus really exists. She boldly asked the question and her letter to The New York Sun prompted one of the most famous newspaper editorials of all time, and inspired future generations to believe in the holiday spirit.

YES, VIRGINIA THE MUSICAL is a brand-new musical based on Virginia O’Hanlon’s true story that has been adapted specifically for school children by Macy’s. In 2008, Macy’s partnered with the Make-a-Wish-Foundation to create their Believe campaign based on this “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” editorial and has since adapted the story into an animated television special, a children’s book and now for the first time it is available to perform live. As part of Macy’s commitment to arts education, they have made YES, VIRGINIA THE MUSICAL available to all teachers from any school – royalty-free! All of the production resources you need to put on YES, VIRGINIA THE MUSICAL are available in one handy toolkit.
