“Christmas in July”

Tim and Katheleen Nealeigh, who generously donate their time to the Shrine throughout the year, will present “St. Nick isn’t just for Kids” a fun, adult take on the beloved Saint.

Katheleen will play the part of K.D. Snitt, an investigative journalist who grills St. Nicholas, played by Tim. Set in present-day Turkey, K.D. will uncover what is really behind the kindly, loving façade of this grandfatherly figure of the past and does he really intend to replace the ever-popular Santa Claus of world-wide fame and adulation?

Tim has actively played the role of St. Nicholas at the Shrine for many years during the holidays. The event, held every December, has become a popular tradition for many area families.
