For close to half the year, over 65 Marbridge residents and countless staff worked tirelessly to put together last week’s A Classic Christmas performance. The program consisted of an abbreviated version of the ‘A Christmas Story’ play, a singing trio, eight dancers, and a musical performance by Marbridge’s choir and band. Between the employee and volunteer afternoon performance and the evening family and community performance, over 600 people were in attendance.
After the program, friends and families joined together with employees and loved ones under the tent for a reception featuring sliders and a milk and cookie bar.
A Note from the Music & Spiritual Instructor
“As the saying goes ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’ and so it does to produce a Christmas program! My role in this year’s production was merely a contribution of the total effort put forth to give you today’s performance. To say the residents worked diligently on their characters, music, and footsteps is an understatement. They were challenged this year, and they gave me their all in every rehearsal. My sincerest gratitude goes to Jana Kay Green for her support and guidance; and additional praise to Judy Guerra, Judy Behr, Barbara Chandler, Carol Johnston, Lynn Woll, Hughie Shaw, Arturo Sandoval, Jorge De La Torre, and my unbelievably hardworking Training & Education team for your time and energy!”
Special thanks to all those that made this event a success:
