We teamed up with Santa to bring the magic right into your home!
How did it work?
In 2020 Santa and Mrs. Claus streamed right into homes with their visits, having conversations with children, meeting their pets, and more. Santa had their letters, knew about their lives, and and sometimes had a special gift already hidden in their home they could discover! This magical offering brought the love and joy of Santa safely into homes around the world. Families were then gifted with a recording of the encounter that they could share with family and friends and have as a wonderful holiday memory for years to come.

Every part was so amazing that it’s hard to narrow it down to a favorite part. If I must, the kids really loved: 1-Santa having their letters/drawing in hand, 2-Santa knowing things that ONLY Santa would know and 3-Santa talking to them personally. My twins are older (9) and this may be the last year they “believe”. Although this event may have guaranteed another year or more! I would recommend this event (and I have) to anyone and everyone that has kids. We will do this event every year that you offer it for as long as we have Believers. This event was absolutely PRICELESS! The wonder and amazement in their eyes and voices will bring me joy every time I watch the video. I hope your staff could feel the love, because it was coming through loud-and-clear! – Diane D’Amico
We purchased this for our grandchildren in Salt Lake City, who don’t see that often. It was a wonderful way to share in their joy of the season. I have already watched the video about six times and will have to stop, because I’ve run out of tears. It’s just so precious! – Claudia Simons
This was the best experience we could’ve asked for. As you could probably tell, my husband was definitely emotional and was so thrilled you were doing this. This time of year is hard for us for a variety of reasons, but finding a way to keep the Santa magic alive for a child during a pandemic is so special, and I am so excited this was a safe option. Thank you so much for offering this option and creating amazing memories for our family. We’ve recommended this to so many of our friends and family, and again, I want to thank you for doing something so special for families. – Susan Aumiller
Open Book Theater partnered with Santa Jerry, a four-time graduate of the world-renowned Charles W Howard School for Santa. Santa’s wish is that every boy and girl remain healthy and safe this Holiday Season.
Santa’s North Pole log cabin was built by Bradly Byrne – with the help of magical elves, and beautifully lit by Harley Miah – with the help of Rudolph’s glowing nose.
