The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

The Life and Adventures of Santa ClausSaturday 10:30am Dec 9th

Main auditorium

Based on the book by L Frank Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz, this exciting story follows the early life of Santa Claus from being abandoned in the forest and adopted by the wood-nymphs, through to making and delivering the very first toys.

Meet the original reindeer Glossie and Flossie as well as the chilly rogue Jack Frost and find out the answer to lots of Christmas questions! Why do we hang stockings? When was the first Christmas tree? And why on earth does Santa climb down the chimney???

With original music and lots of audience participation this is a wonderful seasonal show from Artsdepot and Big Wooden Horse, the creators of the hit shows Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and The Night Before Christmas.

Age Range: 3+
