In addition to go with the spirit of the story, this virtual presentation of SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN will also be a benefit to raise money for The Toy Foundation. This incredible organization has been around for the past 60 years. They help children in need receive the greatest gift of happiness, joy, and imagination all through the wonder of a toy.
In case anyone may not know the story of SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO DOWN, it centers on the origin tale of Santa & how certain things we know about Christmas came to be. It features several notable songs including THE FIRST TOYMAKERS TO THE KING, PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER, and of course the notable title song that the world continues to sing today.
