The Santa Claus Show '17 Revisited

11 Dec 2021 to 18 Dec 2021
10:30am and 1:00pm every day except Monday
We are bringing the magic of Christmas to the PumpHouse Theatre this December with screenings of our 2017 season of The Santa Claus Show.
Event type: 
The PumpHouse Theatre
2a Manurere Avenue, Takapuna Auckland


The razzle-dazzle of Christmas is coming back to the theatre screen! Join us in celebrating the jolly season with special screenings of our 2017 season of The Santa Claus Show. Relive the magic of this special performance with your family and get into the festivities. Join young Kelly, her next door friend Alana, and the cast of joyous characters in this journey of Christmas Eve. Sing along, giggle at Elfie’s antics and share this very merry Auckland adventure with the message of giving.

We’re doing it a little different this year. In lieu of the live performance and due to Covid restrictions, we are screening the video recording of the 2017 Season of The Santa Claus Show. Captured for our archives, we feel now is the time to bring it out and share with our audience, for maximum Christmas cheer!

Special arrangements have been made with the Jolly Man himself and we have elves on hand to take all special lists and notes for Santa, to be delivered straight to the North Pole after the show. So be sure to bring your Santa Lists along.

Making it Accessible:
Captioned screening: Saturday 11 December and Thursday 16 December, 10:30am and 1:00pm
Sensory Relaxed screening: Tuesday 14 December, 10:30am
Intro notes providing a description of the characters, scenes, and visual moments in the show are available on the Tim Bray Theatre Company website. These may be helpful for blind and low vision viewers.

We would like to thank the cast, crew and creatives involved in The Santa Claus Show ‘17 for their kind permissions in allowing us to screen the show. Many have elected to donate their royalties from these screenings back to the theatre company. Thanks too to The PumpHouse Theatre for their support in making this event happen. Kia ora koutou!
