The Evolution of Santa 
We are looking for a child to tell the story of how Santa Clause became Santa. It's as if the narrator is telling one of their younger brothers the story during Christmas Eve. Slightly over the top but very humble as well.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
In the beginning Santa was a Saint, Saint Nicolas. And he dressed like the pope and had a long staff and a big hat. He would go around and leave sacks of money in fireplace stockings and leave gold coins in empty shoes laying around.

Then the Dutch changed him into some kind of god like Odin or Thor. He dressed up in long sheets and had a really long beard like Gandalf. He didn’t deliver presents on Christmas, he delivered them whenever he felt like it, which wasn’t very often cause he was too busy sitting in his throne because they called him the Lord of Christmas.

Then a hundred or so years later, after he got tired of sitting around, he shrank and became an elf. And his beard shrank too. He started smoking and gained some weight and he traded his sheets for some furs and he stopped wearing pants. But he was the first Santa to carry a large sack of toys that he would drop down chimneys on Christmas Eve.

Then one day he must have gotten tired of doing things by himself, so he hired 8 reindeer to help him. They flew around dragging him in a sleigh as he smoked his pipe and threw presents down chimneys. Then since he was riding around so much he got fatter and he decided it was too cold so he put on pants and married Mrs. Clause so she could cook him hot meals.

Then Santa joined the army and made lots of appearances in malls and coke commercials so he could pay for his elf workers in the North Pole and food for his reindeer.

And nowadays he’s still around, and he will always be there waiting for the time that he can bring you gifts and cheer on the Christmas time of year.

And that’s how Saint Nicolas became Santa.
