With the North Pole’s claim to Christmas, the South Pole is looking for a way to put itself “on the map.” In our annual holiday play, the citizens of Antarctica Springs decide to put on a talent show for Santa. With a cast of surfing snowmen, Elvis impersonators, dancing penguins, and comedians, this way, way off-Broadway production in which Santa decides to have two home-bases, warmed our hearts.
The holiday play tradition began in the 1940s when students performed a traditional Christmas Pageant. More than 35 years ago, Sunshine Cottage teacher Sarah McLinden began adapting plays and books into a format where students could show off
their theatrical expertise.
This year’s play, with 14 scenes, allowed each Sunshine Cottage student a speaking role.
