Montgomery Central Elementary School performs “The Reindeer Whisperer” for the holidays

The Reindeer WhispererCunningham, TN – The Montgomery Central Elementary School’s 5th Grade and Central Sound held their annual Christmas Program on Thursday, December 17th, 2015. This year they performed the musical “The Reindeer Whisperer”.

It begins the day before Christmas Eve. Santa Claus is ready for his annual test drive before the big day with his reindeer. However, he finds the reindeer can’t fly, or maybe they won’t fly. Santa and the elves know something is wrong, but they can’t figure it out.
