Anyone realized that we are down to the last 2 months of 2014, and that Christmas is just right around the corner? We brought the kids to catch Junior Claus yesterday afternoon to kick start the festive cheer. It was a cheery, happy musical peppered with loads of snow. Do you want to catch it too? I’m giving away a set of 4 tickets to 1 winner at the end of the post!

So, what is Junior Claus all about? Here’s the synopsis.

Junior Claus (Dwayne Tan) is the rebellious heir to an immense empire in the North Pole, where elves busily prepare for the biggest day of the year – Christmas. When Santa (Benjamin Chow) falls into a deep sleep because the Belief-o-Meter falls to a dangerously low level, Grumpo the greedy elf (Timothy Wan) takes control of Santa’s workshop and attempts to ruin the Yuletide season forever. Junior, alongside his friends Chipper the elf (Seong Hui Xuan) and Pengy the penguin , join forces to prevent this disastrous outcome.

The kids were really attracted to the poster and kept asking me if we are going to watch it. They kept asking who is that boy in red!

The kids just went silent when the musical started. I think they were pretty amazed. Jerome even tried to sing-along! He started to get a little fidgety after a while and was a little too loud to everyone’s amusement/annoyance. He also started climbing all over so the husband decided to remove him for the sake of our fellow audience. Guess he is still a little too young to be able to sit still. Jerry, on the other hand just sat mesmerized by it all…

He did a double take on the picture on the book he was holding onto and told me, “Mama, not the same hor? Why [Junior Claus] look different?”. Jerry managed to follow the plot and kept asking me if Santa is going to die, much to my amusement. My favourite character is Pengy the Penguin but I shall not be a spoiler. Go catch the musical to kick start the spirit of Christmas! It’s a great family musical not to be missed.
