The CVHS advanced drama class will be performing the show Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus in the Center for the Arts on Dec. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11.
The play is about an editorial in the newspaper written in reponse to a little girl who writes to the newspaper asking if Santa Claus is real. It centers around bringing people together in true Christmas spirit.
“It’s a really heartfelt show. It has a good moral of looking out for each other and having everyones’ back,” said senior Sophia Delucchi, who plays the role of Andrea Borland.
Advanced drama students have been rehearsing during their period three class, and each student has a role in the show. Students dedicate a lot of time and effort to make sure the show is the best it can be.
“This class is one of my highest priorities because you have to be here. It’s really important you make it to this class because you are part of a group that needs you to be here,” commented Delucchi.
Some students take on an additional role of leadership that can lead to a whole new level of involvement in the process.
“When you act, you’re just mainly focused on that one character. But when you’re a student director, you get to work on the whole project and get to be a part of the whole process and really make the story come to life,” said student director Gaby Georgieva.
So come on out to any of the shows in December to be welcomed into the approaching Christmas holiday season with this thrilling performance of Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus!
