Breakfast With Santa
Saturday, Dec. 17
Pittsburg High School Auditorium & Cafeteria
This student-directed performance especially for young audiences has been a favorite of the holiday season for many years.
In partnership with Mount Carmel Foundation, the fundraising non-profit arm of Via Christi (formerly Mount Carmel) Hospital, PHS presents it as a gift to the community one Saturday morning each December.
PHS Theatre Department, under the guidance of theatre teacher Greg Shaw, produces the show portion of the morning, with a run time of about 30 minutes. The Foundation provides breakfast — usually donuts and juice — and a craft or coloring pages. And Santa always makes an appearance and poses for photos with children.
This year's performance is directed by Coral VanBecelaere, senior, assisted by Alexis Daniels, junior.
This year's production is unique in that it uses an original script written by Meghan Hess, junior, titled "Breakfast with (Mrs.!) Santa."
The morning is free and open to the public with no tickets nor reservations required.
