AWARD WINNING CAST: In Alphabetical Order –
With an excellent cast and lots of comedy, this is a show that is bound to keep you laughing and get you in the holiday spirit!
David Tuttle is moonlighting as a department store Santa so that he can buy his wife a fur for Christmas. He tells her he's working late at the office, but she finds out he isn't at the office. A suspected other woman, hypnotism, the notorious Santa burglar Kris Kreigle and his gun toting fiancee, and a confused policeman add up to a rollicking tale that is hilarious Christmas or anytime entertainment.
"A lighthearted Christmas tale full of mistaken identities and zany foul ups, with a smattering of slapstick... What you see is what you get: A couple of hours of uncomplicated laughter and fun." Phoenix Gazette.
"Hilarious." Glendale Star.
