Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Nov 27 – Dec 22
Gilliam Stage at Barter Theatre

By Catherine Bush with Music by Dax Dupuy

Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why...

This Christmas season has been a tough one for second grader Pepper McGee. It’s hard to hang onto your Christmas spirit when a new baby sister takes everyone’s attention. Pepper’s only hope for a merry Christmas lies with that jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus, who takes her on a magical adventure that changes how she sees Christmas forever.
