Get in The Holiday Spirit with G. David Post’s Christmas Cards: Letters to Santa

Chatham Community Players is excited to present Christmas Cards: Letters to Santa an evening of heartwarming holiday sketches by playwright G. David Post. Crazy cat ladies, wide-eyed children, sock-knitting witches, ghosts and geese and angels and elves abound in this holiday romp that will be fun for the whole family Join us for a delightful evening (or matinee) of laughter and holiday fun by Post and guest playwright, Steve Ruskin, from December 8 – 16, 2017. Amy Sellars of Ridgewood is making her directorial debut at the Chatham Playhouse.

Post says, “I love Christmas and I love to make people laugh. There is nothing I’d rather do than to help people connect with their humanity and tap into the joy that is theirs for the taking.”

Sometimes written in crayon, sometimes pencil, on notepaper, construction paper, with drawings and without. We smile at the innocence of children reaching out to Mr. Kringle, whether they ask for one thing or for a list that needs three pages. These are expressions of faith in kindness and hope for happiness. These are the Letters to Santa Claus.

“You won’t want to miss these funny and touching scenes that capture the heart of the Christmas spirit, with a hint of nostalgia”, said Director Sellars.
