Mom Report: Santa Claus: The Musical

by |

If you didn’t catch Santa Claus: The Musical at The Taft this weekend, don’t worry, there is still one weekend left!  Get off the naughty list and buy your tickets today!

As usual, The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati put on an engaging show and secured their spot on Santa’s nice list. As soon as we stepped foot into the theatre, I couldn’t take my eyes off of the stage. The set was amazing! I loved the details of the “Sleigh-dar,” the “Book of Clauses,” and the Naughty or Nice list. My daughter was just as in awe of the set as I was!

We also loved the songs and the dancing. One of our favorite parts of the show were the reindeer – they made us giggle, and my daughter practiced dancing like them when we got home. She wants a costume just like theirs now for Christmas! She also really liked the audience participation – she was excited when an elf asked what her name was, and Nick said she was on the NICE list! I enjoyed the details of how the lights changed colors to match the mood or time of day of the show. Our friend, Cassidy, pointed out how the lights were green when one character was green with envy. She provided my daughter a great impromptu lesson after the show on what the phrase ”green with envy” meant.

I don’t want Santa to put me on the naughty list for spoiling the show!  Let me just tell you that the first thing my daughter said when we left the theatre was, “That show was AMAZING!”  I will be writing Santa and asking for season tickets for 2019 / 2020!
