Too much peas and rice and fried fish for Santa

“Eh Ehn Bye! Santa's Too Big!!” opens tonight at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts.

Director and playwright Patricia Nesbitt is behind the show, which is performed by CedarBridge Academy students.

“The story is that Santa and mama Claus cruised to Bermuda for their annual two-day Cup Match Classic this year, and he ate so much potato salad, peas and rice, fried fish, and sherbet shakes that he gained 100 pounds,” said Mrs Nesbitt.

Santa must then go on a diet in order for Christmas to be saved.

Audience members are invited to bring cameras and have family shots taken in Santa's house with the cast during intermission and after the play.

The students' goal is to fill 600 seats with at least 100 patron seats and 500 general admission seats to raise funds for the school.

Tickets are available at the school library, www.bdatix.bm, All Wrapped Up Home, The Money Shop and Fabulous Fashions. For more information telephone 536-6248.

General admission is $25. Patrons tickets are $55. The show starts at 7.30pm.
