STARTING THIS WEEK
THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF SANTA CLAUS (The Lowry, Salford Quays, December 27-January 3)
WHO is Santa Claus? Where did he come from? And why on earth does he climb down the chimney? Follow the early life of Santa Claus, from his being abandoned in the forest and adopted by the wood-nymphs, making the very first toys to his final quest for immortality. Find out why we hang stockings, why he climbs down the chimney and meet the original reindeer Glossie and Flossie as well as the chilly rogue Jack Frost. With original music and lots of audience participation this is a wonderful seasonal show from Artsdepot and Big Wooden Horse, creators of venue favourites The Night Before Christmas and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.
