About the Show

A magical Christmas story for the whole family. Santa helps reveal the pleasure of giving. Kelly and Alana are best friends and decide to write to Santa Claus. But Kelly sends the longest list of things that a child wants for Christmas that Santa has ever seen. Santa flies Kelly to the North Pole so she can learn for herself the true meaning of Christmas.

“A little girl of about 3 gasps when Santa appears from the back of the theatre, and chuckles and claps throughout The Santa Claus Show ’17.

Much older children were equally entranced and we adults not only laughed, but also shed a few tears.

This is a hugely enjoyable, well acted and produced show, guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas.” – Jodi Yeats,
