Literacy Center to host holiday children’s play

When Santa Claus comes down with the measles, just days before Christmas, Holly the Elf jumps in to save the day! The Augusta University Literacy Center will host a production of Christmas, the Measles, and Me on Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. in Maxwell Performing Arts Theater on the Augusta University campus.

With a cast of charismatic characters, big laughs and a happy ending of course, this holiday favorite teaches the important lesson that wishes can come true…even if it takes 80 years!

Admission is free. For more information and to reserve seating, please call the Literacy Center at 706-737-1625. Click here to enjoy photos from the most recent children’s play.
