About the Shows:
Ho Ho Ho! The Santa Claus Chronicles, by Pat Cook, takes place in the North Pole just a few days before Christmas. There is a lot of activity 
this time of year - a press conference where Saint Nick’s press secretary answers reporters’ questions about the jolly guy, disgruntled elves 
who feel overworked and a missing Mrs. Claus! North Pole Star is “Reality TV” at its best as each of Santa’s reindeer audition in front of a 
panel of judges for the ultimate title of North Pole Star! A truly adorable musical.
