St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Savage was one of 100 schools across the country to receive a $1,000 local grant from Macy’s to produce “Yes, Virginia: The Musical.”
In celebration of the fifth anniversary of Macy’s holiday “Believe” campaign, the retailer is helping to bring the animated special to life on school stages across the country by making the script and score available royalty free to all schools, as well as a free digital toolkit.
The “Believe” program encourages children of all ages to drop their stamped letter to Santa at the red Santa Mail letterbox at their local Macy’s. For every letter received, Macy’s will donate $1, up to $1 million, to Make-A-Wish, helping to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Performances are at 7 p.m., Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at St. John the Baptist School, 12508 Lynn Ave. There is no cost for admission.
The school also has been invited by Macy’s to perform “Yes, Virginia: The Musical” at the Mall of America Dec. 14.
