Christmas Eve: 1898. The streets of New York City bustle with activity as a light snow begins to almost overlooks the ragged little girl huddled by the steps of the picturesque mansion. With the help of her grandmother, Lizzie dreams of the things that might be possible were she to dare enter the majestic house and encounter the seemingly happy family within. This condensed retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic will inspire your holiday spirit with a heartwarming story of one little girl's triumph over despair.

Along with the play, and adding to the spirit of the holiday, local music groups will take the stage for programs of songs and compositions of the season.
