"Dear Editor, is there a Santa Claus?"- a question innocently asked by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon. Christmas was coming and all was right with the world ... until her friends mischievously fill her in on the "facts" about Old Saint Nick. Who could tell her the truth? Not her father, a doctor who is always fighting against old world cures. Not her teacher, who is already fed up with Christmas even though it hadn't arrived. So Virginia writes a letter to the editor of The New York Sun, for her father always said, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Virginia's letter falls into the hands of Francis P. Church, a veteran editorial writer who knows he must answer, and must answer truthfully. And so he begins his reply, which becomes one of the most memorable and cherished editorials in newspaper history. A perfect choice for your theatre's holiday season.
