Caribbean Community Theatre presents Santa Claus Might Not be Coming to Town & Other Holiday Mischief, a collection of short plays, on Sunday, December 10, 2023, at 4:00 PM. This show features the students of The Calico Cat Company, CCT’s after-school theater program for children.
Santa Claus Might Not be Coming to Town is a comedic Adventure in one act written by Don Zolidis that tells this story: Dipsy the Elf is fed up with the way Santa’s Workshop is run, and she’s not the only one. Tired of the long Christmas season and the demand for more complicated toys, Santa Claus leaves the North Pole, escaping to a glacier with a legion of penguins who worship him. Now, it’s up to Dipsy and her misfit friends to find Santa and teach him the true meaning of Christmas.
Funny Letters to Santa is written by Janea Dahl, but this production also includes original letters written by some of the Calico Cat Company students
Antarctic Mystery is a short, comedic mystery written by Andy Pavey about a family of penguins who have been kidnapped. Two Antarctic scientists and an Arctic fox are searching for them with the help of some magical mermaid friends.
