The award-winning animated film Christmas Is Here Again comes to life on stage! A family-friendly musical in the vein of Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, this charming, heartfelt odyssey centers on a high-spirited and curious little orphan girl, Sophiana, who lives in a time where there is no Christmas. When Sophiana learns Santa’s enchanted toy sack was stolen by a nefarious elf, she sets out to find it and bring back Christmas! Incorporating a digital package of still and animated images created by Michael Giaimo, art director of the film Frozen, Christmas Is Here Again is sure to dazzle as well as entertain!

Bethlehem native and Hollywood actor, Dan Roebuck, who recently produced, directed and acted in the film Getting Grace shot in the Lehigh Valley, also stars in the animated feature Christmas Is Here Again.  Mr. Roebuck suggested this show to Mr. Bill’s friend and is very interested in visiting with our students during the process of this production!!!
