VANDALIA — Who stole the Christmas Star? The Vandalia Youth Theater Company (VYT) proudly announced their 2017 winter musical production-Holiday Heist, written by the amazingly talented director, Emily Kallenberg, and her equally gifted husband Stephen.

Holiday Heist follows Detective Kane and Sargent Tinsel as they search the world to find out who stole the Christmas Star before its magic runs out. Was it Krampus himself? Or maybe it was the Snow Maiden? Everyone is a suspect, has an alibi, and has a story to tell. All while tying together holiday tales from around the world and performing holiday songs favorites such as “Deck The Halls”, “Jingle Bell Rock”, “Silver Bells”, “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” and the can’t miss tradition of VYT’s Holiday closing “Let there be Peace on Earth”.
VYT promises to lift audience’s holiday spirit while taking them on a cultural adventure on this original holiday “whodunit” December 8th through December 10th at the Dayton Playhouse (1301 E. Siebenthaler Ave., Dayton OH 45414) and challenges the audience to figure it out before the curtain falls! Tickets are available now for $15 on their website www.vandaliayouththeatre.net.
