All the students have been working very hard for the past 5 months learning a vast repertoire of holiday tunes such as Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child, There’s Someone in the Chimney, Santa is the Man and many more. The students have also had the wonderful opportunity to experience the magic that occurs when music, theatrics, costumes and dance are brought together as one.
