RIC Christmas musical ‘Probable Claus’ comes to town Dec. 2, 3

It’s totally original, all new and family-friendly, too! "Probable Claus" is a delightful holiday musical presented by the RIC Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance on Dec. 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. in the Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall.

RIC musical theatre director Bill Wilson and dance director Angelica Vessella have teamed up again to offer this song-and-dance spectacular after the success of last year’s inaugural RIC Christmas musical, "The 11th Day of Christmas."

This year, the story is a hilarious, who-done-it mystery. Santa Claus has gone missing, and Mrs. Claus plays detective in the case to find her husband. Who took Santa? It could be anyone from Cupid, to Jack-O-Lantern, to the Easter Bunny…even the Tooth Fairy is a prime suspect!

“It’s a great opportunity for students because they have the chance to write the script and create their own holiday character,” Wilson said.

So jingle all the way onto the RIC campus next month because the fun-filled "Probable Claus" is coming to town.

General admission is $15. Discounts for students, groups and senior citizens available.
