It’s beginning to look a lot like the best time of the year! I hope not all of you have been naughty this year because Santa is coming to town. Wednesday, December 6th and Thursday, December 7th the incomparable FRED WILLARD (Modern Family, Review) will host the Annual Christmas Variety Show SANTA-THON 2017 at The Greenway Court Theatre with some very special Celebrity Guests.
