Loser Kids Productions present "Santasia – A Holiday Comedy" directed by Shaun Loeser, written and performed by alumni of ImprovOlympic, Second City, and Comedy Sportz, celebrates its 13th year, today, November 30 through December 24, at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
This annual holiday free-wheeling romp has been a cult hit and Critics Pick for 12 years. A perfect blend of Yuletide snark and sentiment, "Santasia – A Holiday Comedy" has been compared to old time Vaudeville and to the likes of the Kids in the Hall and the Carol Burnett Show. (Not for kids)
The production includes classic Rankin and Bass Claymation inspired movies created by Michael Granberry (Robot Chicken) to musical parodies produced by Omar D. Brancato (Carbon 9) to hanging Dad's grandiose Christmas decorations to union battles between a Mafioso Mr. Claus and Joe Pesci-esch Rudolph; with choreography by Tania Pearson-Loeser (Team CoCo).
The cast includes James Elden, Lon Gowan, Andrew J. Hillis, BRandon Loeser, Shaun Loeser, Rusty Locke and Art Oden.
