What is a way to make santa appear in a family show environment without breaking the bank?

Paul Osborne had a superb Santa Production from a Chimney (Genii Magazine?)

I built one many eons ago, and it was easy to build, easy to rehearse, deceptive, and received very well. It took about two sheets of plywood, a paint job, casters, some black cloth and velcro, a few metal corner braces, wood screws, etc., and perhaps 10 hours of work.

If you're interested, I'll try to hunt it down for you.

I did a X-mass show years ago and produced a Santa at the end of the show. Once he appeared I exited and Santa did his thing by handing out presents. No magician can compete with Santa! LOL

The method that I used was really simple and took the crowd by surprised.

I will PM you.

There are a number of ways to produce Santa. You can use a wrap-around cloth type of thing which can be found in Tarbell. You could use a Modern Cabinet, probably that's the easiest way. Osbourne has had some clever methods over the years. I built a Santas Door Frame one year which worked splendidly, it was from Osbourne plans.

I produce santa from a fireplace that I have had on stage the whole time. Perform the illusion complete with sleigh bells ringing and hoofs pounding on the roof. The only thing to remember is to have santa tell the kids to give you a big round of applause for your great magic show. Otherwise santa will get all the attentions an you will be left holding the bag.
