Story Time with Santa and Mrs. Claus

    More then just a visit from Santa, this is a complete half-hour entertaining show with holiday magic, storytelling, humor, and audience participation.  Bruce and Carole Johnson impersonate the famous holiday couple.  This is an excellent program for young children who might be uncertain around Santa because they get to interact with him from a distance so they become used to them before they come close.  The humor and magic appeals to the parents and grandparents so it is great for multigenerational audiences.  This show promotes reading, and is ideal for libraries.  The show can be followed by lap visits with Santa.  Bring your own camera for the excellent photo opportunities.
