Thatcher, AZ— EAC Children’s Theatre offering “Yes Virginia… The Musical” Eastern Arizona College’s Children’s Theatre production of “Yes Virginia… The Musical” will be held on December 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10, at 7:30 p.m., in the EAC Activities Center - Lee Little Theatre. There will also be a matinee performance at 2 p.m., on December 6.

This delightful children’s musical is about an eight-year-old girl named Virginia O'Hanlon, who has always loved Christmas, until the day her classmates bring up the age-old question: “Is there a Santa Claus?”

Not sure what to believe, and unable to find the answers she is looking for, Virginia writes to the New York Sun newspaper. Her letter makes its way to the desk of ill-tempered editor Francis Church, whose answer became the most famous newspaper editorial of all time.

Cost of admission is $3 per person; full time students will be admitted free with EAC ID. Tickets are available weekdays at the EAC ticket office from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., or can be reserved by calling (928) 428-8228, during the same hours. Tickets will also be available at the door.
