ODESSA- We've all seen the end result but building a float takes a lot of work.

"Most of the day, we've been putting on some finishing touches," said Shari Hamrick, an actor with the Permain Playhouse who helped tie up the lose ends of the float that took part in the annual Heritage Holiday parade.

One young actor learned a big lesson during Saturday's work.

"If we all pull together, and work hard we can do it," said actor Shauna Devitt.

A crew started working on the float on Wednesday, but planning started weeks ago. The theme of the trailer float, the playhouses latest play "Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus."

"This float has been in the planning stages for several weeks. We've been putting it together a lot of our cast is going to be up her on our float," said Managing Creative Director for the Permian Playhouse, Mark Tenniswood.

"I think it's a lot of fun, because it follows the theme of the show plus it promotes the Permian Playhouse," said Hamrick.
