Tim Bray Theatre Company presents:

The Santa Claus Show ‘24

By Tim Bray
Songs by Christine White

Created for ages: 3 – 8
⏱ Show Run Time: approx. 50 – 60min, no interval

Get Ready to Sleigh with Santa’s Play

The Tim Bray Theatre Company is delighted to present the 20th season of our beloved family favourite… The Santa Claus Show. Since its debut in 1991, this merry tale has become New Zealand’s best-selling Christmas production!

Ho ho ho – off we go! Join our hero Kelly on an epic adventure, dashing through the snow, and laughing all the way to the North Pole. Along the way, you’ll find yourself singing, giggling, and embarking on a magical journey as Kelly learns the true sentiment of Christmas. Bring along your little elves (and even some big ones) for a truly entertaining Christmas show that will fill your souls with jolly holiday cheer.

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

Costume Parade

Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Christmas characters. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance.
