Santa Claus is Coming

to Cranbrook Community Theatre

A committee of elves is working hard to bring virtual visits through ZOOM with Santa Claus to area children. These virtual visits are for kids and families who can’t visit Santa the usual way this year. In constant contact with the North Pole, the committee of elves and Claus HQ have put aside the following dates and times for virtual ZOOM visits:

  • Friday, December 11, 6:00pm-7:00pm

  • Saturday, Dec 12, 11:00am-12:30pm

  • Sunday, Dec 13, 2:00pm-3:30pm


The deadline to ZOOM with Santa is 12noon 

Thursday, December 10th.


Our sincere thanks to The Bedroom Furniture Galleries for providing a beautiful comfy chair for Santa while he's here.
