About The Man Who Wanted to Be Santa Claus

From histage.com . . .

“Who IS that guy?” That’s what they’re asking each other at the local police station when Santa Claus shows up handing out gifts. This Santa seems to know them all so well…but they haven’t a clue who he is. It’s not like they haven’t seen people dressed for the holidays, especially since Earlene visits costumed first as an elf and then as a big bunny. Even Chief Culpepper has been known to don the Santa suit. As if this weren’t enough to keep them guessing, state investigator Russell Brooks arrives to check on some irregularities. It doesn’t take long for Brooks to get on the trail of the phantom Kris Kringle and then he gets his first big break – he finds Santa’s bag of presents and, in it, a collection of old wallets. Could it be that Santa is a pickpocket? From singing messengers to lovesick reporters this holiday comedy goes a long way to prove things aren’t always what they seem to be, especially for one old gentleman.
