About This Show





It was shaping up to be just another Christmas – until they unveiled a sled that runs on starlight…

An aging Santa eyeing retirement. A robot stranded in the snow. A cowgirl who lives in Christmas Creek. An evil elf eager to take control of Christmas. A sleigh that runs on starlight. A romance between a young couple who find themselves separated by miles of snow. And two elves working hard to save the holiday along with dancers adding another dimension to the story.
“The Christmas Express," a new holiday musical, is coming to Theater for the New City Dec. 16-19 just in time for the holiday season, providing a show for audiences of all ages. Get your tickets to see this modern Christmas musical, a magical show about Santa, starlight, invention, imagination, elves, reindeer, Snowbot the robot and, of course, saving Christmas.
