Behind the Spectacular: Multiplying Santas in Our “Here Comes Santa Claus” NumberW
e’re not the only ones on the Great Stage during our “Here Comes Santa Claus” number, the ensemble cast joins us for this fan favorite too!
“The ensemble dancers start the number as Santas on the choral staircases, they then walk down the stairs to meet more Santas,” Rockette Bailey explains. “As the number progresses the number of Santas multiply.”
One of the best parts of this number? What we call the house Santas: the performers who get to march down the aisles and surprise the audience members in their seats!
Once everyone is on stage, that’s when the 90-foot LED screen helps to make the Santas multiply even more! By the end of the routine, there are 48 dancers on stage and endless Santas projected onto all eight of the proscenium arches inside Radio City Music Hall, all dancing in perfect unison.
Join us for the 2018 Christmas Spectacular—the show is running now through January 6th at Radio City Music Hall!
