Santa Went On A Diet – a LIVE Children’s Theatre Show in Munster Indiana

Theatre for Young Audiences Presents: “The Year Santa Went On A Diet,”
From December 4th – 16hth at Theatre At the Center, Munster Indiana

In this tale, based on a childhood holiday essay written by newspaper columnist Phil Potempa in third grade, favorite Christmas icons come to life as Santa turns away from his typical nighttime snack of cookies and milk to drop some pounds so his gift-laden sleigh can get off the ground on Christmas Eve. Mrs. Claus, Frosty the Snowman, workshop helpers Emma Elf and Edward Elf and reindeer Blitzen are all keeping Santa on track to lose weight and feel great.

“It’s a great personal honor to have this stage opportunity to see characters and a story imagined from my mind at age 9 come leap to life four decades later for a children’s theatrical production I have the joy of scripting, directing, and casting at Theatre at the Center,” Phil Potempa said.

Starring as Santa Claus is WJOB Radio Personality Dave Innes, with Mrs. Claus played by Whiting Pierogi Fest “Buscia” Carolyn Kruzynski, teamed with WJOB Radio Personality Robert Aguirre as Edward Elf opposite South Shore Arts’ Cara Schmitt as Emma Elf. Frosty the Snowman will be brought to life by the puppeteering and voice of Philip Potempa joined by Blitzen the Reindeer portrayed by WJOB Radio Personality Sonny Santana.

“The Year Santa Went on a Diet” is written and directed by Philip Potempa with weekday performances at 9:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. and special Saturday performances at 9:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. on December 16. Perfect for all ages, all tickets are $10 by calling the box office at 219-836-3255 or visiting www.theatreatthecenter.com.

Theatre at the Center is located at 1040 Ridge Road in Munster, Indiana.
