A letter from producer, Janet Wood:
The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre will be hosting its 41st Children’s Holiday Party on Saturday December 9, 2023. Our theatre has a long history of being one of the most honored and respected theatres in the city.
It is a major event for all of us at the theatre and we strive to make this a very special moment and memory for the children of Hathaway house, The Sycamores, Vista Del Mar, We Can (children with cancer), Penny Lane as well as The Salvation Army.
At the event, we provide:
- Light lunch
- Specialty performers
- An original Christmas Musical (written each year by one of our own playwrights)
- And a special moment for each child to sit with Santa and receive a gift
The children have come to live in these foster care facilities because of incredible neglect. Some abused, some abandoned, most have been mistreated to the extent that they are unable to reside with foster families; and they will not be going home for the holidays.
All entertainers, musicians, special performers, food-servers, hosts and clean-up crew are volunteering their time to the event. Because of past donations we’ve had many successful parties and there is no reason why this year’s even can’t be just as great with your help. Any donation you make would be greatly appreciated.
The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre is a non-profit (501) C3 organization and our tax exempt ID number is 237449682.
This is my 41st year producing the children’s party, but in my past years, serving as a volunteer, the absolute joy of seeing these children run open armed to hug and kiss our cast and crew, in spite of the neglect they have received, is quite an experience.

Thank you for caring and sharing,
