Henry's holiday parable The Gift of the Magi. The story of a poor young girl who sells matches on the street, The Little Match Girl draws us into the harsh realities of the less fortunate and the promise of everlasting warmth in the embracing arms of love. In the beloved holiday story The Gift of the Magi, a pair of struggling newlyweds makes personal sacrifices to purchase presents for one another -- before realizing that their love and devotion are the true gifts of the season.

The music and dance numbers were very impressive -- every inch of the stage was utilized by the cast of ten with enthusiasm and skill.
Vanguard students did a great job!
Suggest the production be trimmed and targeted to grades 5 - 8 - those students entering and attending middle school. There is still time to encourage this group toward solid values, good choices, and realization of behavior's consequences. Older kids are already set on their path and modification is best in the hands of counselors and therapists if parents haven't done their job.
Americans All -- A musical revue that cleverly examines and celebrates American core values
Music and Lyrics by Honorable James P. Gray
Arranged by Susan Boettger
Directed by Vanda Eggington
Vanguard University’s highly acclaimed and award-winning department of theatre arts presents the World Premiere of Americans All, a clever and inspiring original musical revue written by local retired Orange County Superior Court Judge James Gray. Americans All is presented in the Lyceum Theatre on the Vanguard University campus.
The show’s director, Vanda Eggington, describes the show, “It’s always such a great thrill to present original material for the first time. The show has not been done before, so no one has any preconceived notions about what they are going to experience on stage. Actors, musicians and audience alike--and even the show’s author--are all going to take this wild ride together into the magic of musical theatre. This show could probably be best described as a blend of To Sir, With Love because the teacher inspires the students; The Breakfast Club because the students inspire each other; and Glee because they are constantly breaking out in song.”
