PASADENA, Texas — The San Jacinto College theatre and film department is set to ring in the holiday season with its annual production of “Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical.”
The family celebration spectacular will be performed in the Powell Arena Theatre, located on the San Jacinto College Central Campus at 8060 Spencer Hwy., in Pasadena. “Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical” performances are set for Dec. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m., and on Dec. 4 and 11 at 2:30 p.m. Special day matinee performances will be performed for area schools and day cares on Dec. 1 and 2.
“Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical” is a fantasy about a sinister plot to steal Santa’s magic. The cast includes male and female actors, as well as singers and dancers from ages 4 to adult. Highlights of the show include toys that come alive and dance and sing, and chorus of children elves. Santa Claus will also take a break from building toys at the North Pole to visit with children during intermission.
“This is a high energy musical that includes outstanding acting, singing and a lot of dancing,” commented Dr. Jerry Ivins, Central Campus theatre and film department chair. “For the last 20 years we have presented this show to the community, and it is a holiday tradition for the region. Nearly every performance has sold out since we introduced the production, and we are so thankful for the continued support of our patrons.”
“The cost for general admission is $10 per person. Tickets bought and picked up at least two days prior to the opening of the show, Nov. 28th, cost $8 each.” To make reservations, please call 281-476-1828.
