Tim Bray Productions – Auckland’s leading theatre for children – presents The Santa Claus Show ‘17.

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.

“This beautifully told morality story holds true to some important Kiwi values… returning year after year to give Auckland audiences its very own Christmas gift.” – Patrick Kelly, Theatrereview 2016
