The combination of live-action theatre & encircling projected animation will transport audiences into a 360° immersive experience beyond imagination as if sitting inside the pages of the storybook.
Aerial acts, gravity-defying circus performances, spellbinding magic, skating and cycling are performed in this show-stopping Broadway-bound production. An international cast of 30 world-class acrobats, magicians, singers, dancers and enchanting characters will mesmerize with
over 200 breathtaking costumes to an original score and an unforgettable grand appearance by Santa Claus himself.
