Does Santa Claus really exist? That’s a question kids have been asking for generations. In 1897, one precocious girl named Virginia O’Hanlon was determined to find an answer. 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.
Every year the beloved animated special based on Virginia’s story touches new audiences. Now, this holiday classic has been adapted into a magical stage show written specifically for school children. New songs by Macy’s Emmy Award-winning songwriters, a heartwarming story and an unforgettable cast of characters all come together in this new theatrical event.
As part of their commitment to arts education, Macy’s is making YES, VIRGINIA The Musical available to teachers royalty-free. Your school can even receive a $1,000 production grant if you’re one of the first 100 to apply and qualify. This Christmas, we’re going to give kids everywhere a chance to be a star. So sign up your school and apply for a grant today.
