A jolly time for the whole family

Our ever-popular Christmas production, The Santa Claus Show has been touching the hearts of families all over Auckland since 1991. We are overjoyed to be celebrating the season by bringing back this family favourite for 2022! Come experience our heart-warming tale about finding the true meaning of Christmas, sprinkled with comedy and a big dollop of the season’s magic. Join Kelly and Alana on their adventure of jolly proportions, through the North Pole, meeting Santa’s chief elf and the big merry man himself. Spread the season’s cheer with this iconic tale for all to delight in.

“The Santa Claus Show and Tim Bray are the gifts that keep on giving. What Tim Bray is to Children's Theatre, the All Blacks are to Rugby: one of New Zealand's national treasures.” - Patrick Kelly, Theatreview

“This is a hugely enjoyable, well acted and produced show, guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas.” Jodi Yeats, Stuff
