If quality time with Santa is on your child’s wish list, before he gets too busy making toys and tending to Dancer and Dasher and Prancer and Vixen, meet him Saturdays for tea at the KC Café. This Saturday, some families arrived after a charming performance of Snow White, Rose Red (and Fred) which re-imagines the Brothers Grimm tale as a musical comedy. Others came fresh with images of the Sugar Plum Fairy dancing in their heads, after enjoying The Joffrey Ballet's The Nutcracker.
