Saturdays Thanksgiving to Christmas CLICK HERE for TICKETS

Every Saturday morning Santa welcomes all to share their holiday wish lists while he poses for family photos and shares a Continental Breakfast (see below). Then Santa and the Elves present ELFPROV, an interactive holiday themed comedy show for all ages. The morning ends with Santa leading a few songs before taking off to get ready for Christmas Eve.

Here is how each morning flows…

Lobby/Holding room opens at 9am. We don’t want early birds out in the cold.
House opens at 9:30.
Come early to meet Santa and take pictures. Bring your holiday wish lists and be ready to whisper in Santa’s Ear the #1 item on the list. Bring your own camera. Elves will help take family photos. We will also take pictures and post online for free download. We do not have printed pictures to take home. There is a continental breakfast served of mini rolls, donuts, muffins, yogurt, fruit, cheeses, coffee, juice and bottled water… Oh and of course Santa always has a few candy canes and other sweet options.


The Elves have a great show for all ages, creating original songs, stories and skits based on your suggestions. OK to take photo and video as your loved ones get on stage to participate….

10:45 Santa will lead a round of Carols. Hope all are warmed-up and ready to sing along. This helps all get higher up on the list of good boys and girls.

FYI The show often starts late when the show is sold out. Santa will not let the show start until every child in line has had a chance to say hello. But due to a busy holiday schedule, Santa cannot meet with late comers after the show so PLEASE be on time. Santa hates to disappoint the children because the parents were being naughty.

ELFPROV A division of Improv Theater LLC Check out the website for great shows year round. http://www.newyorkimprovtheater.com
