Casa Mañana presents Here Comes Santa Claus
Casa Mañana Theatre presents Here Comes Santa Claus, November 28 – December 23, as part of the 2014 – 2015 Children’s Theatre season presented by Community Bank, sponsored by Macy’s. Tickets are on sale now.
Young Simon Crooges doesn’t really believe in the spirit of Christmas – except when it comes to getting really big, expensive presents. He doesn’t even believe in Santa Claus! But with the help of some spirit friends, he’s about to explore his past, present and future as he learns about the true meaning of Christmas – and maybe even get a surprise visit from a certain jolly old Saint.
Here Comes Santa Claus stars Samuel Moran as “Simon,” Camryn Wright and Sarah Youngblood as “Suzy,” Nathanael Clark and Theodore Morris as “Morris” and Alyssa Robbins as “Mrs. Pinklegrass.” Additional cast members include Greg Dulcie as “Christmas Present,” Keith Warren as “Dad / Old Simon,” Paul T. Taylor as “Howard / Old Morris,” Cate Cozzens as “Mom,” Madilyn Perry and Maddox Marino as “Young Simon,” Brandon Shreve as “Christmas Future,” Lauren Magee and Brooke Verbois as “Christmas Past” and Gabi Roller and Devan DeLugo as “Katie.” Ensemble members include Jeni Roller, Stephen Newton, Ally Ramsey, Westin Brown, Jack Bledsoe, Madelyn Whitehead, Emily Hensley, Avery Presson, David Midkiff, Tanner Garmon, Ashton Miramontes, Becca Brown and Hayden Hart.
The show is directed by Noah Putterman and choreographed by Alyssa Robbins and Jeremy Dumont. Additional creative team members include Sally Gardner as Musical Director, Samuel Rushen as Lighting Designer, Katie Dill as Scenic Designer, Tammy Spencer as Costume Designer and Catherine Petty-Rogers as Hair, Wig and Make-up Designer.
Casa Mañana will present a shortened presentation of Here Comes Santa Claus for patients and families at Cook Children’s Medical Center on Wednesday, December 10. “Bringing our show to Cooks is an honor and a privilege,” said Putterman. “To give the gift of theatre to those brave kids during the holidays is such a joy and we are so grateful to Cooks for granting us this special opportunity.”
