David Tuttle is moonlighting as a department store Santa so that he can buy his wife a fur for Christmas. He tells her he's working late at the office, but she finds out he isn't at the office. A suspected other woman, hypnotism, the notorious Santa burglar Kris Kreigle and his gun toting fiancee, and a confused policeman add up to a rollicking tale that is hilarious Christmas or anytime entertainment.

I would actually give this play somewhere between 3 and 4 stars.  As far as farce goes, this script is somewhere in the middle... it's no Neil Simon or Ray Cooney, but it has some strong scenes.  The script features larger roles for both male and female performers and the content is as pretty non-offensive - no wild affairs in this one.  The set & costumes are simple and set dressing is breeze as it takes place during the Christmas Season.  I would recommend this play for a smaller venue or community theatre.
