Central Primary School students danced and sang as they told the story of a little girl who believed in Santa Claus.

The students were part of the school’s first musical, “Yes, Virginia the Musical.”

Third-grade teacher Trey Veazey said the four performances of the musical were made possible thanks to a $1,000 grant from Macy’s holiday Believe campaign.

The musical is an original production based on the true story of 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus. The school musical program debuted in 2012 as part of Macy’s Believe campaign and has been performed by elementary and middle schools nationwide.

Friends and family crowded the school cafeteria Dec. 18 for the final performance. Each received a playbill and had the opportunity to write letters to Santa.
