Vestal Middle School Students Perform Holiday Musical

By Fox 40 Staff.
Vestal Middle school students ushered in the holiday spirit with a musical Saturday.

The 8th graders of Vestal Middle school, preformed "Yes, Virginia The Musical" for the community at the African Road Auditorium.

The holiday musical is an original production based on the true story of 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon whose curiosity about the existence of Santa Claus inspired her to write a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897. That letter turned out to be one of the most famous newspaper editorials of all time.

The school received a grant through Macy's Believe campaign that covered the costumes and other productions costs.
