A visit from Santa Claus is every child’s dream.

David has been appearing as Santa Claus in Southern California since 1990.  He has many regular clients who hire him year after year after year.  David understands that the secret to playing Santa Claus successfully is love.  That’s it.  It’s not about whether they’ve been naughty, it’s about being accepting, opening his arms, pulling out his smile, and bringing joy to a child’s life, if just for an hour.  This is the moment that a child will remember an entire lifetime.

David and his crew of Santa Clauses can:

  • Pass out gifts to all the children
  • Let each child sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they want for Christmas
  • Lighten the mood and spark the festivities like no one else!

 Special-issue Santa Clauses

  • Magic Santa Claus.  A Magic Castle magician dressed in a Santa Claus outfit.
  • Singing Santa Claus.  A professional singer who puts on an emotionally moving show of 3 Christmas songs.
  • Psychic Santa Claus.  This Santa Claus can read palms, interpret the tarot, and tell the future in a variety of other ways.
  • Santa Claus telegram.  Let St. Nick bring a 15-minute message to someone during a busy workday.

Our other holiday entertainers

Mrs. Claus, elves, snowmen, toy soldiers, a grinch, reindeer, etc.  These characters are great for kids.  They make balloon animals and paint faces.

  • Magicians.  A Magic Castle magician can perform:
    • A kids’ magic show
    • A standup show to adult crowds ranging from 15 to 1,000 people

    • A mindreading show, which is the most stunning feat of all.
