Santa True Thomas

Instructor of Christmas Performer Workshops

Santa True has developed a truly innovative training style and technique with materials and content to enhance your performance. 

CPW was the first training program to offer in-depth multiple presentations that focus on performing. True was the only instructor to teach 5 workshops at Discover Santa and 6 workshops at Internation Santa Celebration in Denver.

It is the mission of True and CPW to richly equip all of the participants in the workshop with real-world application of performance fundamentals and skills, to help them develop their own unique Christmas characters in a supporting, fun and engaging way. 

Christmas Performer Workshops - Friday 4-6pm

Saturday 9-Noon and 1-5pm

Sunday 9-Noon and 1-4pm

Simply put, no matter how fancy the outfit may be, it’s the person wearing the outfit who brings the magic to life. If you have great performing skills, you will do a better job of sharing that magic which gets you better gigs and pay.

The Performing Fundamentals workshop includes Vocals, Physicality, Improv, Storytelling, Building Back Stories, Character work and philosophy, Dealing with Marathon Performance, Working as Duos, Stage Presence, Developing your Scene Breakdowns, Expressiveness, Coaching, and much, much more!
