About This Show

This heart-warming Rudie-DeCarlo holiday musical comedy is about the Matthews family and Nick, a jolly, bearded stranger who shows up for a visit one cold and blustery December eve in the late 1800’s. Together, Nick and the Little-House-On-The-Prairie style family learn some special lessons about the true meaning of friendship, family, the spirit of giving and the joy earned from kindness to strangers. Alias Santa Claus had its world premiere at Santa Monica Playhouse in 1976 and still features three of the original cast members. It includes delightful tunes such as “It’s Not What You Have, But What You Do With What You Do Have” and “Leave A Light In The Window For Santa.”
