If there’s anything better than a great holiday show, it’s a show that’s also filled with tons of great laughs, wonderful live music, a really good story, lots of Christmas cheer and lots of fun for children and adults alike!
That’s what The Playhouse has in store for everyone in their upcoming Christmas comedy, Dear Santa, by Canada’s King of Comedy, Norm Foster.
This entertaining show is set at Santa’s Office and Workshop at his North Pole Headquarters, just days before his yearly trip with a sleigh full of toys for all the girls and boys.
A fun aspect of the show is getting a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at the hustle and bustle with Santa and his staff working round the clock as that magic time approaches.
But this year is even more hectic as trouble brews and everything seems to go wrong leaving Santa to deal with a ton of problems before he sets out on his Christmas Eve journey.
Heading up the professional cast of this Yuletide comedy are Doug Tangney who stars as Santa himself.
Tangney is a favourite with Playhouse audiences, and he brings his popular brand of magic and comedy to this jolly old elf.
Joining him are a high-powered cast of talented actors and singers including Richard Bauer, Jamie Williams, Susan Greenfield, Liz Gilroy, Timm Hughes, Travis Seetoo and Meredith Zwicker who doubles as Musical Director for the show.
As in past years, the show will also feature an extended musical scene filled with Christmas songs and dances to put everyone in the holiday spirit.
There’s also a community aspect to The Playhouse’s holiday show this year with a choir comprised of local youth and also lively elves portrayed by some budding local actors.
Ontario Power Generation is also a major sponsor of this family event.
It’s truly a laughter and music filled Christmas experience for everyone and a wonderful way to end a terrific Season at The Playhouse.
Dear Santa runs from November 24 through December 18 with matinee and evening performances.
