Junior Claus, November 15 – December 23, 2012. Santa’s only son, Junior, is less than enthusiastic about taking over the family business. But when a depleted Christmas “belief-o-meter” puts the jolly old man in a deep slumber. Junior must quickly master the art of climbing down chimneys, driving reindeer, reading GPS in a blizzard, and everything else that goes into the greatest delivery in the world. With the help of an elf friend, a homesick penguin, and a youngster who fully believes in the Christmas spirit, Junior may just save Christmas in time in this joyful new musical. Tickets start at just $11! Call 407.896.7365 or visit orlandorep.com!
