Plot Summary: 

Welcome to the Conejo Players Theatre’s first ever holiday party! Hosted by Bella, Josh, and Julie, we’ll take turns sharing our favorite holiday memories through song, dance, food, games and more! Ranging from Kwanza to Santa Lucia day, you’ll hear some of your favorite holiday classics, and maybe learn a thing or two about cultures, traditions, and what makes this time of year so special for so many people.
