SANTA'S STORY returns to the Fugard Studio following a successful run at the Old Mutual Theatre on the Square in Johannesburg. Santa's Story is a moving, one woman show depicting Santa Pelham's journey of courage and hope through discrimination to heart breaking losses. Her daughter, well known singer Aviva Pelham, performs this meaningful story of hope and inspiration with wonderful Klesmer music in the Fugard Studio.
Award winning Aviva Pelham is one of South Africa’s foremost performing aritsts, having distinguished herself in countless starring roles in opera, operetta, and musicals and concert. Her vibrant personality and outstanding voice have shone on the stages of major theatres locally as well as in London, Paris and Israel. Aviva has a passion for upliftment programmes and mentors fresh talent from all walks of life. She has directed galas, concerts, fundraisers and has a Master’s Degree in Music.
SANTA'S STORY returns to the Fugard Studio Theatre due to overwhelming popular demand after an initial sold out season in 2012.
