classic produced at Geva has all o the
essetial elemets icludig Scoogebeig visited by spiits wo elpim udestad te tue meaig of Cistmas. Complete wit te Fezziwigs,te Catcits, ad moe, tis magicalpoductio icopoates some of teewest stage tecology alog wit aspecial goup of actos wo wam te
audience’s hearts.
“A majoity of te cast ave bee ivolvedwit it sice te pemiee i 2010, so fotem, it is vey muc like a omecomigad spedig te olidays wit family,”says Daw Kellogg, CommuicatiosMaage, Geva Teate Cete. “Ad weave ove a doze cilde, all local kidsi tis sow.”Accodig to Muelle, e cilde love coectig wit ote actos adbeig i te Geva eviomet evey day. Se says tey become vey close,vey quickly, ad become tei ow little family. “Te kids look fowad toauditioig ad evey yea ope tey get a pat ad te tey make veygood fieds wo tey keep fo may yeas,” se says.But Muelle also believes it is a geat educatioal oppotuity fo e cilde.It is’t just a social oppotuity, but a leaig expeiece tat puses temto kow wat it meas to take esposibility, lea about commitmet, toemembe lies ad sogs, beig o time ad i te igt place at te igttime. “Tey do miss scool, tee ae actually eigt o ie days of all-dayeeasals,” says Muelle. “Te sows u late i te eveigs so tey ae oftelate to scool te ext day. Sometimes we ae’t ome util 11pm ad by tetime tey wid dow it’s afte midigt.”But se says te cilde do ot seem to be pased by it, ad welcome te
opportunity to be part o the production. They each play several diferent
oles i te sow ad switc costumes fequetly. “Tey love te costumecages. Tey ave vey elaboate costumes, ad ae costatly switcigfom costume to costume. I tis sowtee ae o beaks. It is costatmotio fo tem,” Muelle says.But it’s also costat motio fo tepaets i a dieet way. Kellogg sayste commitmet paets make is uge
or a production like this. She says it
is amazig to watc paets bigtei cilde to ad fom eeasals,
ensure they are there or the shows,
elp capeoe, ad make suc atemedous eot, especially aoudte olidays. “It’s a lifestyle almost. Weae i Geva-mode ad we we aei tat tee eally is otig else. It’sevey day,” says Muelle. “People kow
and understand that our lives revolve
aoud it fo two mots solid.”Ad eve toug tee is o fee time,
they love it. Mueller works hard withthe schools to help children catch up
ad make up missed wok. Sometimesit is callegig as tee ae ote
responsibilities and what she calls
“Cistmas coict.” Ote activities mayovelap, like oliday cocets ad familygateigs ad evets tougout te

“Te wole tig is amazig to me,”Muelle says. “We do about 21 sowsad te st time I was socked adweepy we it was ove. It takes a fewweeks to get out of Geva-mode.”
