The Santa Claus Show 2014

Santa Claus Show '14

The Santa Claus Show by Tim Bray, songs by Christine White. 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.

“The Santa Claus Show is the perfect antidote to the commercial tripe on TV and in the shopping malls. Simple, beautiful storytelling, a world of magic with a splash of wonder – close your eyes and become a kid.” – Theatreview

Theatre Workshops

In December we present 2 workshops alongside “The Santa Claus Show”: a brand new Musical Theatre Workshop, SING! and also our popular Theatre Workshop.

The girls came home amped after a day with your team! They said it was the best holiday programme they had been on.” – Quote from the Houtwipper family

Your children will also have a photo opportunity with the cast and crew and receive a copy of our official poster, signed by our cast, to take home as a memento.

“This is the best school holiday programme I’ve ever been to. I want to come again!“ – Georgina 10yrs
