Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center Performs The World Premiere Of "Yes, Virginia The Musical," Which Macy's Is Bringing Back For A Second Season And Again Offering $100K In School Grants. (Photo: Business Wire)

Macy’s first introduced “Yes, Virginia The Musical” in 2012, and it was embraced by schools across the country. From Arizona and California to Florida and New York, teachers, students and families rallied around the musical and brought its inspiring message of hope to life. Schools received the script and score royalty free, and the 100 grant recipient schools put those funds to use to purchase costumes, set materials and even sound and lighting equipment. Many schools used their performances as a way to give back, encouraging their students and audiences to write letters to Santa to support Macy’s Believe campaign. With their help, Macy’s reached its goal of collecting 1 million letters.

Now through Sept 16, interested elementary and middle schools can visit yesvirginiamusical.com to submit a grant application. The grants will be awarded to the first 100 eligible schools that complete the application process. All interested schools also are able to access the digital toolkit on yesvirginiamusical.com, which contains the downloadable, royalty-free script and score, select songs, inspirational videos and full details for grant application.

“Yes, Virginia” was created and produced by Macy's and JWT in conjunction with The Ebeling Group and MEC Entertainment, a division of Mediaedge:cia. “Yes, Virginia The Musical” was adapted from the animated special and storybook by Chris Plehal, Wesley Whatley (music) and William Schermerhorn (book and lyrics), the Emmy ® Award-winning creative team behind the original song “Yes, Virginia (There is a Santa Claus).”
