HOW DOES THE EVENT WORK?
Just like our plays, the Box Office will open one hour prior to the start time and the house will open no later than 30 minutes before start time. Santa will read two to three stories, we’ll stake a short intermission for primping and restroom visits, and then families will line up in the order in which they are seated. We’ll have some volunteer entertainment while you wait!
CAN I BRING OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS?
Bottles for feeding infants are allowed, but otherwise we cannot allow outside food or drinks . We’ll have concessions available throughout , though, including our “World Famous Popcorn” (it’s one of the perks we promised Santa to get him to fly down here).
WHAT STORIES WILL SANTA READ?
Santa is still going through his storybooks right now, but A Visit from St. Nicholas (aka ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas) will definitely be one of them!
CAN I BRING MY STROLLER?
Due to space limitations at ONSTAGE, we cannot accommodate strollers at this event.
CAN I BRING MY PET(S)?
We love our four legged, furry, feathered, scaly and otherwise non-human friends as much as anyone, but unfortunately, Santa can’t visit with them for this special event.
HOW MUCH ARE PHOTOS?
Photos are free, but you must provide your own camera. We’ll have experienced help available to assist you in getting the best photo possible!
NO REALLY, HOW MUCH ARE PHOTOS?
Seriously. Photos are free!
MY CHILD WOULD LIKE TO BRING SANTA COOKIES. IS THAT OK?
Santa appreciates cookies and other gifts, but save them for Christmas Eve, please!
I HAVE OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO WATCH MY KIDS GET THEIR PHOTOS OR BE IN THE PHOTO. CAN THEY WAIT IN THE LOBBY UNTIL IT’S OUR TURN?
Due to fire code and space restrictions, we have to limit the event to ticketholders only.
OTHER THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Children aren’t always trained actors and may not smile on que. Remember that photos with Santa are about the memory of who your child is this holiday season, and not achieving a portrait that will make Annie Leibovitz green with envy. Meltdowns will happen. Some kids will happily smile and share their Christmas wishes with Santa. Others may just stare in awe. Whatever happens, remember - that’s the memory to capture because it’ll be different next year!
- If your child brings a list or a letter for Santa and you’re not quite ready to part with it yet, just let one of our helpers know and we’ll find a way to make sure it goes back home with you (and, of course, that Santa has a copy!).
