The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati Presents Santa Claus: The Musical Coming to the Taft Theatre!
The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati gets audiences in the holiday spirit this season with Santa Claus: The Musical, December 8-16, 2018 at the Taft Theatre.
After 1,000 years of faithful service, Santa Claus has decided to retire. But not all the elves in Santa’s Workshop are too thrilled about his chosen replacement. With the help of his tech-savvy daughter, Beatrice, website designer Nick is in for the adventure of his life as he prepares to take over the reins to Santa’s sleigh…before the next Christmas.

School performances will be on December 11-14 & 17th during the day. TCT’s Sensory-Friendly performances are for individuals on the autism spectrum. Children (and adults) with other special needs may also benefit. The show provides a welcoming, supportive environment for those with sensory challenges. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound are made. Also, effects such as fog, strobes are at a minimum.
Furthermore, a downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) is available on the TCT website one week before the performance.
