The story revolves around Santa and Mrs. Claus after 50 years of marriage, finally able to spend Christmas day together. While the elves are delivering the toys, Santa engages the audience in several stories dedicated to Christmases he has spent away from her. Suddenly, things take a turn for the worse when the Grinch appears to steal Christmas.
The comical production was written by Cylie Hall, a senior theatre major from Norman, Okla., and Haleigh Hamil, a senior elementary education major from Tulsa, Okla. Hall is also the director of the show.
