What to Expect
I will arrive on time. Generally I arrive in costume, and work with event lead person on time, location and style of entrance. I will either move around and interact with people, or take a seat in the Santa chair to talk to kids, hand out gifts or treats if available. If appropriate, I will speak Spanish with kids and/or parents.
I have been acting since I was 12, in comedies (The Odd Couple), Eugene O'Neill dramas, training films, and many locations and situations as Santa Claus after my beard turned white. These situations have included family parties, corporate parties, National Christmas Tree, holiday concert appearances, shopping mall walkabouts, riding in horse-drawn carriages and a DC harbor fireboat. I speak Spanish fluently (2nd language). I am a retired US Foreign Service Officer who works with arts organizations on management and fundraising.
Additional Booking Notes
Not applicable unless there is a photo shoot going on. I expect photographer to have their own setup, and love it when they email me some photos afterwards.
