About Santastic!

It’s holiday time so guess who’s coming to town not only for pictures, but to star in a fabulously festive musical of merriment? Well, “The Big S.C.”, of course, with his merry band of singing and dancing elves, who are all geared up to perform as the “opening act” to Santa’s big show.

But, what happens when a very important “Santa-Gram” is delivered from the North Pole? The elves (Kringle, Jingle, Tingle, and Bob!) find themselves with an eager audience, a fully staged holiday musical – and no star! Without a moment’s hesitation, they put their pointy ears together and decide they just might be able to do the show themselves! After a splashy song and dance medley of all of the best-loved Christmas songs, they take the audience down memory lane, recapturing the most beloved scenes and melodies from holiday classics featuring all the season’s celebrities: Rudolph, Frosty, and that mean one, Mr. Grinch! There’s no better way to delight in the splendor of the season, than with a story well told, and these elves tell them all.
