Christmas spirit on display in 'Mister Santa'

(Continued)

“I just wanted to emphasize how important tradition is this time of year,” Fix said. “I feel it’s all at risk.”

Completing the show are an array of elaborate costumes hand-sewn by Lola Knight and her staff of volunteers, as well as choreography by Triton High senior Rachel Hall, who has been creating dances for Theater Workshop productions since the sixth grade.

“The show ends with a huge dance finale that I think is quite spectacular,” Fix said.

Theater Workshop is an after-school program that is part of Workshop Arts Inc., a nonprofit charitable foundation that also runs Workshop in the Woods at Camp Denizen in Georgetown.

“This program is really, for me, about building community, independent confidence and the opportunity for creative expression,” Fix said.
