Hays Community Theatre back in action for Christmas
Wednesday, December 09, 2020
Hays Community Theatre director Cheryl Glassman earlier this fall was asked to assemble a local ensemble to perform a song for a virtual Christmas variety show out of New York City.
Glassman’s instinctive reply reflected the universal desire for relief from COVID-19 and everything else that’s happened this year.
“We need a little Christmas,” Glassman on Tuesday evening recalled saying. “I did, I actually said that.”
Coincidentally, the annual New York-based show this year is titled “We Need A Little Christmas.” Produced by the musical theater production company HiGlass Productions, it will showcase talent across the country in more than 20 pre-recorded songs, skits and special performances. All the pre-recorded guest performances will be assembled into a single video, with two live hosts, to stream free on YouTube Live at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17. The YouTube Live link will be posted on the Facebook event page the day of the show.
