— Just about any parent will tell you that Christmas is all about the children, but finding the right live holiday entertainment for youngsters can be a challenge.

Short attention spans and often boundless energy can make it tough for kids to sit through a typical full-length stage performance, but this year’s Valley Theater Company Christmas production may be just the ticket to solve that dilemma.

For the first time ever, as a holiday production company VTC will offer two one-act plays, “Christmas Every Day,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Recently appointed VTC Artistic Director Candace Andrews explained that selection. “This is the first season of plays that I have chosen,” Andrews said. “It’s part of our ongoing efforts to grow our audiences.”

VTC will present a family-friendly, holiday-themed play in December. Maybe it won’t be hard for kids to sit through a full-length play.

“Each of these one-act plays is 30-35 minutes and contains action, humor, and music that will keep even very young children entertained.”
