Tickets are now on sale for the greatest pre-Christmas show in Chemainus.

Santa Baby, presented by the Royal Canadian Legion Chemainus Branch 191, takes place Nov. 16 to 18.

“It’s a huge Christmas variety show,” said director/producer Dawn Adams. “When they leave Santa’s workshop, they’re going to be singing and dancing and feeling happy.”

Joining the cast for this production for the first time are Welsh Tenor Peter Brady, and Bob Johns, following his success at the Chemainus Bluegrass Festival.

There will be plenty of good cheer, audience participation and festive fun as you take a trip into Santa’s workshop, says show emcee and head elf Michael Pickard.

“They can expect to laugh their bells off,” he said. “We want to make sure the Chemainus crowd gets some exposure to the Christmas cheer before they go out and face the malls — and just remind them what a good old-fashioned Christmas is like.”

Tickets for Santa Baby are $30 and include a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, catered by Legion members. There will be two evening shows on Nov. 16 and 17 and a matinee on Nov. 18.

Tickets are available through the Legion Lounge or at 49th Parallel Grocery and Chemainus Foods. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will go to the Chemainus Legion.
