Help Santa Go Green is a delightful, whimsical, funny, yet poignant show that can captivate children while at the same time keep the adults engaged and enjoying themselves, too. Who says we can't have fun and talk about how tough it is to adjust our behavior to a more sustainable way of living? Not Ray. He shows us how to do just that in a very approachable way. What's wonderful about the show is that it captures the imaginations of young people in their formative years where some lasting effects can be had. With plenty of audience participation, everyone feels like they're a part of the show. Bravo!
