Live At The Ritz
Ritz Theatre presents “Polar Express” Pajama Party
WELLINGTON, Texas – The Ritz Theatre continues a popular local Christmas tradition as it invites area children to an evening pajama party and a screening of the popular holiday film “The Polar Express,” complete with cookies and hot chocolate.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and showtime is 6:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, and admission is free with a new, unwrapped toy or a $5 donation. Toys and funds will be donated to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Toys should appeal to children between the ages of 18 months and 18 years of age.
Everyone is encouraged to wear their pajamas, and to come early for photos with the beautiful Ritz Christmas decorations.
“The pajama party has proven to be one of our most popular events at the Ritz, and it encourages children to think about other children in need while they’re having fun,” said Melanie Baumgardner, president of the nonprofit Wellington Ritz Theatre, Inc. board.
