“We have been rehearsing for about two months and things are going great!” Milford added. “I’m super impressed and proud of my cast and crew. They’re all very talented and focused. I honestly could not imagine a better cast and crew.”

Milford went on to say that she encourages families to come and share this timeless story full of adventure and wonder. “It’s a very heartwarming story that I feel a lot of people will connect with. Plus, what better way to spend your night than to drive through the Christmas lights, watch a wonderful play and support Playhouse in the Park? It really is a wonderful way to spend time with your loved ones.”
