Chasing Santa, a Small Cast Comedy Musical Perusal



A Musical Comedy for the Holidays.  Chase Storyman of YMI News gets the story of a lifetime, INTERVIEWING SANTA but he has a little problem, he keeps passing out at the mere mention of Santa’s name.  To top things off, his biggest competitor, Lilac Helowitz (more of a Yom Kippur girl) joins him on the journey.


FINALLY! We NOW know the truth about the origin of Mankind! It all began in a Petri Dish at the Genome Observation Department!… WHO KNEW?

THAT’S RIGHT! It seems that, per the “Boss’s” instructions, an experiment was conducted that yielded a split result. The Subject divided into a positive and negative of itself, requiring careful introduction to each other in order for the experiment to continue. Relabeled “Man” and “Woman”, the subject matter was
poured into a Petri Dish and the experiment observation was begun.

We see the differences in the two “Subjects” as we follow them through their introduction, their growth in getting acquainted, their ultimate joining, and, of course, procreation. (The procreation part got a little ugly at the actual moment of birth, but, luckily, they survived it.)

Unfortunately, the whole thing was supervised by two rather unorthodox Lab Technicians, one of whom is a severe hypochondriac and worries constantly. Against explicit instructions, the Lab Techs can’t help tampering. They really should have left well enough alone, but they felt so bad because “Man” seemed to be at a definite disadvantage in several situations.

In the end, the two “Subjects” grow to maturity and have to acknowledge that, even through the rough spots, the whole thing was quite worth it because, in fact, they grew to love each other very much.

This is a touching and funny play that involves only four cast members. The set is simple and the message is a happy one. Everyone in the audience will be able to relate to what they watch unfold on the stage before their eyes.

A brief reference set to denote their arrival from outside, in the snow.

The interior of Santa’s residence. (SANTA’S CHAIR, MRS. CLAUS’S chair, and a small table.)

Santa’s Workshop.


Santa wears his Santa pants, boots, a long-sleeved grey T-shirt and suspenders throughout the show. For the last scene, he comes out fully dressed and ready to “take off”.

Mrs. Claus and the elves are self-explanatory.

As for the reindeer (BLITZEN), you can use reindeer costumes but, we encourage a bit of creativity.

BLITZEN – Brown jeans, brown shirt, gold sequin vest or jacket, and gold sequin fedora hat with antlers coming out of it.
