I just witnessed one of the finest musicals I think I ever saw. And believe it or not, not one of the characters was older than 12. Fourth and 5th graders from Princeton Elementary performed "Once On a Housetop - An International Holiday Celebration."
There were chimney sweeps, cheerleaders, wise men, angels, and lots of incredible singers. We celebrated Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. As the kids sang Silent Night, cheerleaders held signs with the names and ages of every victim of Sandy Hook. And we cried. We cried hard.
