Condensed performance of Cornerstone Productions' "The Christmas Post" with a 15-minute talk-back with the students in attendance.
Norman Rockwell captured the American spirit on canvas. Each picture was a story about folks we knew and people we cared about-- a story so vivid you could practically see it come to life right there on the cover of "The Saturday Evening Post."
So... what if it did come to life? What if you could just walk into the magical world of a Rockwell painting? "The Christmas Post" does just that. From the moment the lights come up on Hattie McGee's tine news hut on a snowy Christmas Eve in 1947, until the curtain falls late that afternoon on the exhausted Alice Garfield in the toy department of Herzog's Department Store, "The Christmas Post" takes us into the world of ordinary Americans who, just like people today, need to rediscover their faith and be reminded of what Christmas is really all about. This Broadway style musical is full of toe-tapping songs, original ballads, and familiar Christmas carols: a fantastic show for the whole family!
