Ruppel Academy Wins Grant from Macy’s

Ruppel Academy for Advanced Studies recently performed the holiday stage production “Yes, Virginia the Musical,” thanks to a $1,000 grant from Macy’s.

Ruppel is one of only 100 schools across the United States awarded the Macy’s grant to help defray production costs for the holiday musical. “Yes, Virginia the Musical” is based on a true story and tells the tale of eight year old Virginia O’Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus.

Tune into JPS-TV Channel 8 on Cox during the holiday break to catch the full performance of “Yes, Virginia the Musical” by Ruppel students.
