The Latham School Christmas program "Santa's Holiday Hoedown," decribed as a Christmas Jamboree, was held at California's restored Finke Theatre on Monday, Dec. 19. The production was directed by Ginger Moore, with sound, lighting and music done by Phil Lewis.

The basic story was one of poor finances at Santa's Workshop, with the possibility of having to close it. In searching for a way to make some money, it was decided to have a stage show at Branson. The first song was, "Goin' to Branson."
