Santa Claus: The Musical
Michael Malthaner - Composer / Charles Corritore - Lyricist &
Finally, a new Christmas musical!!!
If you're tired of repeating the same versions of A CHRISTMAS CAROL
GIFT OF THE MAGI year after year, let the potential of Santa Claus: The
Musical! breathe new life into your holiday ticket sales!
Based on The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum
(The Wizard of Oz), this big-hearted, delightful tale relates the
life story of the jolly old man in the red suit and how so many of the
Yuletide traditions associated with him first came to be.
"Malthaner's music reaches admirably inspiring heights in
such numbers as "Make the World a Better Place" in which Claus' worldly
mission is lyrically captured. The score can also pull out all the stops and
indulge in music hall shtick in such numbers as "Who, But the Awgwas?" and
"Just Like the Old Days."
"Corritore and Malthaner
have succeeded in bringing to Erie the fruits of a labor that dares to
be different.....We have, in this delightful entertainment, witnessed
the birth of what itself deserves to become a holiday tradition."
