"I could not have asked for a better performer to be at our event! If I could have given higher than a 5 on all of these, I certainly would have! "Santa" was extremely professional and more than accommodating! The children loved his visit and his Santa story! I would definitely recommend Storybook Santa Claus to anyone who is looking to hire a realistic and fantastic Santa! We can't wait to have him back next year and have already started some planning!"
My clients and I had such a great time with Santa Claus as our guest of honor at Zeller Photography studio on Saturday. Santa brought the magic of Christmas to life with his fun stories and personal interactions with the children. One of my moms even posted on Facebook later that the experience brought tears to her eyes as she watched her little ones experience Santa. Santa was very patient with the crying babies as well. He brought a true Christmas Spirit to our portrait experience!

I am a full-time, professional family entertainer with over 30 years of experience. I perform as “Storybook Santa Claus.” I also perform as Capstone The Magician, & Hobo Joe The Clown.
I call my approach to Santa “Storybook Santa Claus” to distinguish it from many other Santas which basically consist of “a guy in a Santa suit.” A “Storybook Santa Claus” appearance is a complete, interactive theatrical performance. I use story-telling, singing, poetry, magic tricks, puppetry, and unique “Santa props” like a magic pocket watch that stops time so Santa can make all his deliveries in one night.
No detail has been left to chance in creating a magical Santa Claus appearance. My suit is real wool and custom made from the original patterns created for Macy’s in the 1940s by C.W. Howard, the father of the modern American Santa Claus character. My beard, mustache and wig are custom and made from real hair. My boots and custom belt are real leather. My belt buckle is handmade from solid brass and weighs a pound!
“Storybook Santa” is high quality, family entertainment available for corporate events, community events, parades, commercial photo/video, and a limited number of private residential visits.
A Storybook Santa Claus performance can take place in a home, a large banquet or other corporate event, and even an outdoor event like a lights-on ceremony or parade. Customized presentations are available to fit your event and venue.
