Extending Giving Tuesday all season long, Santa's Circus, the cirque-style production, and The Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood proudly announce a commitment to community giving through collaborations with four youth-focused charities: the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, D'Addario Foundation/Immersive Music Challenge, LACC's Guardian Scholars, and the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood. 

The enchanting family-friendly extravaganza, featuring a blend of theatre, dance and high-flying acrobatics, for families and audiences of all ages, will run from Friday, December 8 to Saturday, December 23, 2023. During the 19 performances, proceeds from 10% of every ticket sold will be donated to these charities. Also, a benefit show on Tuesday, December 12 at 5:00pm has been added to the schedule for the general public to attend along with hundreds of attendees from these participating charities who will receive donated tickets. Patrons who purchase tickets can receive 20% off this show—or ANY show throughout the entire run—when applying the code SCLAHOLIDAY20 at check-out.

Guests will experience 90-minutes of exhilarating entertainment filled with breathtaking stunts, astonishing skills, and a wintery wonderland of magic, illusions, comedy and surprises. Children in the audience are invited to hand-deliver a letter for Santa to Mrs. Clause during the performance, and families receive a complimentary photo opp with Santa after the show. The Montalbán's magical theatre, in the heart of Hollywood, is located at 1615 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Tickets start at $37 (children)/$47 (adults) and are expected to sell quickly.

The Montalbán, Hollywood's classic theatre reborn for a new era of screened entertainment and performing arts, is one of the few remaining mid-sized and fully equipped proscenium venues in Los Angeles. It features orchestra, mezzanine, loge, and balcony seating, and is known for its excellent sight-lines and acoustics.

The Ricardo Montalbán Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, bought the building in 1999. Humanitarian and Emmy Award-winning actor Ricardo Montalbán's vision was to create a presence in Hollywood that provided inspiration and employment for young Latinos, as well as other underrepresented people throughout the community.
