It premiered December 10, 1981. The central character is Hannah Sasaki, a disabled teenage girl in camp, whose letters to an older sister who had escaped camp through \"<a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Voluntary evacuation\">voluntary evacuation</a>\" propel the story. Hannah ends up organizing a Christmas show to improve morale in the camp. The show, consisting of popular Christmas songs, is then performed for both the camp and theater audiences.\n</p><p>Unlike some of the other plays in the Kidoariraku series, <i>Christmas in Camp</i> proved to be a popular success, with its run extended and nearly all performances sold out. It's popularity inspired a sequel, titled <i>Christmas in Camp II</i>, also authored by Magwili (with \"additional writing\" by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Mako\">Mako</a> and Keone Young), which debuted at East West Players on December 11, 1985. In the 1990s, Magwili and wife Sachiko Magwili created the similarly structured <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"A Jive Bomber's Christmas (play)\">A Jive Bomber's Christmas</a></i>, which became a holiday staple in Los Angeles into the 2000s.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Plays on incarceration\">Plays on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<br/>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>\"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Finding Aid for the East West Players Records, 1965–1992</a>.\" Charles E.
