The Project [theatre] Presents

  • There are only 12 days until holidays and Santa still can’t find his holiday spirit. He’s looked everywhere but he’s having a hard time adjusting to a world where cookies are replaced by kale chips and season greetings are sent via text message. This is a big problem for the future of the holiday spirit and it’s up to his elf minions to bring Santa into the 21st century before it’s too late.
