“It’s true wherever you find love— it feels like Christmas!” My favorite quote from my favorite adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol— A Muppet Christmas Carol— and while we may not be gathering at big Christmas parties this year, or packing into the theatre to see the latest area rendering of the Dickensian holiday classic, the statement stands— wherever you find love, it feels like Christmas.

Just what was seen today with the other Jojo!
Remember me, reader? We spoke last week about Seussical?
Well Heritage Players is two weeks in with that musical!

Why, it’s The Heritage Players offering up their zany summer show!

Geiger leads the group to victory with his attention to scene-work and Lukacsina aides in finding a beautiful harmony across this vocally awesome cast.
