Reviews of Santa Claus: The Musical

“Santa Claus […] announces that he’s retiring after 1,000 years, and the search is on to fill his boots. […] Effervescent and kind, it’s clear that the duo have a great deal of love not only for the children of the world but also for each other. Their relationship in a time of change and growth provides some of the most poignant moments in the show and allows Santa Claus to succeed not only as a children’s theatre piece but as an experience for all ages. […] This toe-tapping joyous musical extravaganza is sure to rank among your family’s favorite holiday traditions. […] The show’s musical numbers bring show-stopper after show-stopper.” – ,

“The musical is fast-paced so don’t expect the little ones to fall asleep. […] There are also some wisely placed audience interactions in the middle and end of the performance so children can be truly engaged.” – Maricar Estrella, Star Telegram.

The show does not disappoint. […] All of the music is new and original–no traditional holiday songs–and yet it really works. It’s novel and engaging but still conveys the feeling of the holiday season. […] It’s fast-paced, so they’re never bored. And as for this adult, I must say I also found myself being swept away with Nick and Bea on their adventure to their new home, the North Pole.” Leslie Gordon,

“Targeting the youngsters in the audience with the wonder and energy of Santa’s workshop, this short and sweet musical is relevant to everyone as it highlights the challenges of change, the power of family and friends believing in you, and the importance of being honest and kind to others. “Santa Claus: The Musical” is a jolly good time with a lesson to boot(!) that should absolutely be part of your holiday traditions.” Christi Geary,
