Mexico City’s beloved Christmas Classic LA VILLA DE SANTA CLAUS (Santa Claus’s Village), is crossing the border and headed to Southern California this holiday season, for a limited engagement run at the Fox Performing Arts Center (3801 Mission Inn Avenue) in Riverside for one weekend only, November 29 thru December 2. Part Christmas musical and part interactive North Pole experience, LA VILLA DE SANTA CLAUS features a book by Xavier López Miranda & Magalli Urquieta, music and lyrics by Xavier López Miranda and Marcial Alejandro & direction by Edgardo Lar. It is presented in Spanish, with subtitles for English Speaking audiences and is executive produced by legendary film and television star Xavier López “Chabelo.”
Heartwarming and interactive, the production features 10 original songs, a dynamic cast of 26, impressive staging and special effects, a heartwarming interactive play, and the star of the show, the most famous man in a red suit- all of which have made this vibrant family musical a success for over a decade.
And the fun doesn’t stop at the theatre! After the show, kids and their parents will wander through Santa’s magical North Pole Village and play with his army of elves, from cottage to cottage as they prepare for the most important delivery of the year! There are a number of activities, puzzles, arts & crafts, physical games, and the chance to meet the man himself, give him your letter and maybe take a selfie!
