PRINCETON — Princeton Christian Academy students will present their Christmas program, "The Secret of Snowflake County," at 7 p.m. Friday in Princeton Bible Church auditorium. The play, created by Christy Semsen, is a zany play set in a town where the residents are competing to see who can put together the most extravagant Christmas production. Some of the wacky entries include line-dancing angels and tap-dancing wise men. 

Mayor Halmark, played by Grace Wolbrecht, a PCA eighth-grader, struggles to find the biggest and best way to celebrate Christmas. It happens that her young daughter, played by seventh-grader Claudette Rosario, has not forgotten that hope came in a humble stall. She reminds us all that Christmas is not the production, but the promise of a savior.

All students in kindergarten through grade eight have a part in this timeless show directed by PCA teacher Kathey Cook. A short concert of instrumental and vocal ensembles will also be presented. The public is invited to this free performance and a cookie reception afterwards in the gymnasium.
