“The Lights of Jingle Bell Hill” by John Jacobson and Mac Huff
Directed by Ruth Ann Pattee
All classes and performance take place at the Valley Players Theater, 4254 Main Street, Waitsfield
Every town that celebrates Christmas seems to have at least one street that takes it all joyfully over-the-top in its quest to display its spirit in decoration and light. The same is true for the North Pole, in the village that is the home of Santa Claus. The citizens of that village are, of course, elves, reindeer, toys, and snow people. When the Bright family moves to Jingle Bell Hill, they are a little intimidated by the contest to win “The Best Decorated Neighborhood” Award. There is one house on Jingle Bell Hill that is without lights, decoration, and holiday spirit, and that causes the neighborhood to lose the contest every year. Together, the residents help their neighbor re-discover the joy in coming together as a community to celebrate the wonder of the season.
