Casting

Santa Claus
Male
The man himself! However, after being the man for 1,000 years, he’s finally ready to pass on the reins and find someone new to fill his boots.

Mrs. Claus
Female
As the saying goes, behind every great man is an even greater woman. She has a heart of gold, and a little bit of sass for good measure.

Henchy
Male
Santa’s “Head Elf” in charge of mission control. He has the most Christmas spirit of anyone in Santa’s Workshop, but can be a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to all the rules and regulations. Henchy dreams of becoming the new Santa Claus.

Nicholas (Nick)
Male
A website designer and single dad to Beatrice, Nick has no idea what it takes to be Santa Claus. At first he doesn’t have the closest relationship with his daughter, but the two form a close bond over the course of the show.

Beatrice (Bee)
Female - 12-14
Nicholas’ daughter who is a computer whiz and problem solver. Extremely mature and independent, Bee comes to the rescue more than a few times to help out her Dad and save Christmas.

Tenchy
Female
The nervous and athletic of The 3 Lady Elves trio.

Chirpy
Female
The happy optimist of the group.

Punchy
Female
The irritable, bookish elf who develops quite a fondness for the new Santa.
