Register To Zoom With Santa! (Meetings on Nov 28 and Dec 19)

Unfortunately, due to the unpredictability of COVID-19, the changing zones and subsequent restrictions, the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum has needed to redirect our Santa event this year. In an effort to maintain some sort of normality and connect with our local community the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum is happy to announce that after speaking with Santa and his head I.T. Elf, Santa has agreed to a special ZOOM meeting with Santa! Santa's head I.T. Elf will be on the call to help facilitate (Santa isn't too good with ZOOM yet, I mean... he still makes lists he has to check twice.) Santa will read a story, join in a sing-a-long, play Christmas games, and hear all about your Christmas wishes!

The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge has been given new life thanks to the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival – Once on this Island), and the Tony-winning virtuoso, Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide…), starring in 50 roles of a lifetime. Staged exclusively for this production and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theatre home for the holidays. The Hollywood Reporter declares, “It’s a towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this.” And the Los Angeles Times raves, “Mays is a rare gem and Arden is ingenious. For true theater lovers, there can be no better gift this season.”
