Army Garrison Italy's Soldiers' Theatre held the opening night of its annual Christmas Show, featuring 25 members of the Vicenza military community. Commissioned and noncommissioned officers, retirees, spouses and military children were cast in the show.

One of the youngest performers was so excited about her role in the program, she got her classmates and Department of Defense Education Activity teacher to attend the special show. 


The cast had to learn nearly 50 songs with choreography all within 46 days from auditions to opening night.
