Carl Anderson, Ph.D., "… the world’s foremost Santa expert…" presents this thoughtful, charming, and inspirational one-man show chronicling
his 20 years portraying Santa. The show follows Carl's life and experiences as Santa, the history of Santa Claus, and includes delightful
stories drawn from Dr. Anderson's book, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS.... LETTERS FROM SANTA'S MAILBAG. The forthrightness, humor,
and heartbreak of what children share and do visiting Santa form, "… a winning autobiographical tale… hilarious… worth repetition…" (Austin
American Statesman) and "… an extraordinary blend of humor, pathos and intelligence… as warm and wonderful as a cup of hot chocolate
on a cold winter’s night…" (Austin Chronicle). "Searching…" was nominated for a 2002 B. Iden Payne Award for Best Original Script.
This autobiographical monologue is for adults and children who "know". A holiday tradition in the making! SEARCHING
FOR SANTA is also the basis for the new feature film currently being submitted to film festivals under the title, The Real
Book this very special performance for your group or event. It will be an evening to remember that will touch your heart
while tickling your funny bone.
