Now in its 17th year, Santasia combines a very talented cast, comedy, clever song lyrics, imaginative choreography, thoughtful remembrances of holidays past and combines it with video vignettes to create a very enjoyable if not particularly traditional holiday fun time.
I’ve attended a number of performances over the years and while there is much that is repeated it remains worthy of an encore visit in my opinion. The closing “Sledding” segment is a particular favorite of mine and there are certainly other segments that could qualify for you. Check this video from a few years ago to give you an idea:
Time is running out in Los Angeles as Santasia will end its 2016 run on Sunday, December 25, 2016. If you live or are visiting New York City, the same cast is performing at St Luke’s Theatre -- three more performances next week.
If you are looking for a fun time to get into the holiday spirit, want something different than The Nutcracker(okay, more than a bit) and want to support small theater, I recommend Santasia.
