The kids ran around an inadvertent tree maze before the town tree was lit! The Swarthmore Fire Company is selling these beautiful fresh trees to raise funds!
The children agree that running around the trees is a good way to keep warm on a cold, wet night!
Marty “Mr. Swarthmore” Speigel plays the guitar as the singing begins.
The town is led in a rousing chorus of “Jingle Bells”!
The children are called up to sing “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer” into the microphone! The evening ended with a visit from Santa. Each child was presented with a candy cane. (It was too dark to take iPhone pictures by then!)
Earlier in the day, Young People’s Theatre Workshop presented “The Aristocats” musical! My little helper and I were impressed with the large and talented cast, great choreography and direction!
The audience jumps to their feet and joins the cast in a reprise of the chorus!
Cast members pose for pictures with their fans!
