Santa Claus Show

The Santa Claus Show

Written by Tim Bray; songs by Christine White

Dates: 9–21 December 2013.

Venue: The PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna, Auckland.

Delighting children at Christmas for many years, The Santa Claus Show continues to bring magic and meaning to this special time of the year, now in it’s twelfth year of production, the show is named as one of the Top Ten Things to do for Christmas in Auckland.

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 where she learns for herself the true meaning of Christmas.

“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.” Theatreview.

Season runs from 9-21 December, 10.30am and 1pm daily.

  • Generous discounts for school and early childhood centre groups – tickets from just $10 (usually $24)
