Heritage Square Music Hall has begun showing their very last play:  Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Goodbye.  This is a fun musical comedy, and includes some of their favorite songs and sketches from the past 25 years.  The Heritage Square Children’s Theater is also showing a Christmas play:  Santa Needs a Holiday.  Youngsters in the audience are often invited to join the cast on the stage.  If you have young children in your life, be sure to take them to this play…it’s your very last chance!  See the calendar for specific performance times.
