Saint Nicholas


Author: Anthony James – Music: Daniel Hewitt


The Real Santa Claus


Saint Nicholas is a retelling of the legend that gave us Santa Claus. Two schoolgirls are transported from a snowy Christmas Eve 1,700 years into the past. There they meet a young priest who tries to stop three young girls being sold into a life of slavery. He throws three bags of gold into their father’s house. The gold will mean that the girls can marry the boys they love and avoid the evil slaver Demus, who wants to sell them into a life of poverty and slavery. Will the money save the girls and will their experience help them and their skeptical brother believe in all the Santa Clauses?
