LOOKING FORWARD TO DECEMBER
In my opinion, when you're kid-you have no idea of the effort that goes into a theater production. Some children may think actors just show up and start acting without rehearsals. I'm pretty sure that a lot of kids make associations to things they're already familiar with-which may or may not be a whole lot (if you think about it). Kids are generally looking to be entertained and may not think of a show's true meaning, unless they had been prepared ahead of time .
Being that Hanukkah Lights in the Big Sky is a play inspired by true events that occurred in 1993 in Billings, Montana, the play went into a lot of depth. It retells how a brick was thrown at a menorah in a child's window during Hanukkah and how community leaders of all faiths came together to help spread a message of tolerance and peace, inspiring 10,000 families to display menorahs on Christmas.
