Describe a concert, variety show or a show performed on stage

 
On the weekend before Christmas, a large shopping complex in my town organized a show for disabled and underprivileged children. The show was held at the foyer of their complex building.

Disabled and underprivileged children from several homes in town were ferried to the complex where they were seated in chairs in front of the stage that was decorated for the occasion. Also present were some local dignitaries, parents and members of the public.

At 8:30 p., the concert kicked off with a rousing dance routine by members of a dancing school. These young dancers danced and pranced with such skills and coordination that left the audience wanting for more. At the end of the dance, the thunderous applause from the audience showed how much they appreciated the performance.

By then the foyer was filled to capacity. Shoppers and visitors stopped to watch the show.

Next were songs by some local singes and members of church groups. they performed remarkably well and got the audience, especially the young children, to sing along with them. The spirit of Christmas was well and alive a the show.

As in all Christmas celebrations, Santa Claus made his appearance. Few people would have guessed that the jolly old gentleman was, in real life, the rotund complex manager Mr. Dennis Ong. He really played the part of Santa Claus well. Dressed in a red costume and sporting a huge cotton beard, he came on stage with sacks of toys and gifts, much to the delight of the little children who clapped their hands in appreciation.

One by one, the children were ushered onto the stage where they received a gift each from Santa. Two of the children were on wheelchairs but that did not deter them from joining in the fun and joy. As there were many gifts, Santa also invited young members of the public to go on stage to receive the gifts. Soon all the gifts were distributed.

Finally all the performers cam eon stage to sing "Silent Night". Many members of the public sang along as well. It was a short but meaningful show. For the disabled and underprivileged children, it was indeed a happy occasion.
