In this hilarious and irreverent send-up, Santa is hosting his annual holiday party attended by the usual holiday favorites: Frosty, Tiny Tim, The Little Drummer Boy, and Rudolph, who all have a bone to pick with Santa. After the introduction of the sexy new Little Drummer Girl, tempers flare, and Santa ends up with a candy cane through the heart. No one will confess, no one can leave, and Christmas is in jeopardy. As the tension builds, a couple of incompetent detectives enter the scene, and all the dirty secrets of these iconic holiday characters are revealed. Eventually, with the help of the audience, the murderer is convicted and sentenced.
Who Killed Santa? is an alternative adult show featuring parodies of holiday songs, large rod puppets, and four different endings determined by which suspect the audience accuses.
Neil Haven is the author of Pink Champagne, Stuck, Get a Life, and The Playdaters, among others. His work has been seen at In Tandem Theatre, Uprooted Theatre, Pink Banana, The Brumder Mansion, UW-Whitewater, and other theatres around the country.
