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.

Delighting children at Christmas for many years, 'The Santa Claus Show' continues to bring magic and meaning to this special time of the year. Make 'The Santa Claus Show' part of your family’s Christmas traditions.

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.

Book your company’s staff function, school or early childhood centre in for a joyous end of year treat. You could even have your own exclusive performance and we offer generous group discounts. Have a picnic by Lake Pupuke after the show, or enjoy catering from the cafe next door.

“Too busy shopping to get into the Christmas spirit? Catching ‘The Santa Claus Show’, a magical story of how a little girl learns the pleasure of giving, could be the answer.” NZ Herald

“Bray’s modern day Kiwi Christmas pageant is resplendent with quirky characters, candid quips, quick changes, crazy costumes, as well as more serious social questions for consideration. All in all a merry little Christmas cracker.” Nik Smythe, Theatreview.
