Students in all grade levels at Kaegebein Elementary School staged two performances of "Yes, Virginia The Musical," an original production based on a true story of 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus. The performances, under the direction of Renée Michki, took place Dec. 18 and 19 before a packed audience in the newly renovated school auditorium.

Kaegebein received a $1,000 grant from Macy's to assist with production costs. Macy's made the script and score for "Yes, Virginia The Musical" available royalty free. (photos by Larry Austin)
