“We want to know if the kids in Corinth and the surrounding area still believe in Santa Claus,” said Theatre Guild member Barbara Rogers.
In this holiday fundraiser, the Theatre Guild members are helping get in touch with Santa this Christmas season. First, parents fill out a form to accompany their kids’ letters to Santa Claus. Then they either mail it to the Crossroads Playhouse or stop by and place the letter in a special red mailbox in the theater’s lobby.
Kids can even stop by the Playhouse to write their letters and fill out the forms. Colored pencils and crayons will be available in the lobby. The Playhouse is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sometime before Christmas the kids will receive a personal letter from the jolly fat man at the North Pole.
CT-A Technical Director David Maxedon is excited about the beginning of this new Christmas program.
“There’s just something so charming about the work that goes into these pages written with such excited, tiny little hands,” said Maxedon. “It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year!”
This activity is a tie-in with the upcoming CT-A production of “Miracle at 34th Street,” slated for Dec. 14-16.
Parents should enclose $5 to pay for postage to Santa’s Workshop.
“It’s just a little extra to get the letters all the way up to the North Pole,” said Rogers. “Santa gets busy by Christmas, but there won’t be any problem if we get them by Dec. 23.”
Forms are available on the CT-A website at www.corinththeatrearts.com or at the Crossroads Playhouse at 303 Fulton Drive. The forms and letters can be dropped off at the Playhouse or mailed to P.O. Box 127, Corinth MS 38834.
