I attended the opening night performance of Saline Area Players' world premiere of Silent Night: The Real(ish) Story.  The show was wonderful.  The singing was beautiful with some delightful twists; the costumes  and hairstyles were wonderful, the characters were colorful and portrayed extremely well, and the full house audience was very responsive.  It's not every day that you get to see an original creation that is so well done.  Many thanks to SAP member Kara Cardella for bringing this show to Saline.   There are four more chances to see the show.
