Yes Virginia

Yes Virginia, The Musical
by Wesley Whatley and William Schermerhorn

Directed by Jonathan Perry

  “Yes, Virginia the Musical,” is based on an animated, nonmusical television special, “Yes, Virginia,”

   Both the stage show and TV special were inspired by the famous 1897 New York Sun editorial which answered a letter written by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon, who wrote to the newspaper asking if there is a Santa Claus.
