MEET SANTA ALEX
Alex Orthwein is an Actor and Musician in NYC who has appeared on stage, in commercials, and on TV. He has been Santa Claus for almost a decade in the most iconic places in New York City. He worked three seasons at the Sterling Renaissance Festival, two of which he was the Village Idiot (2013-2015). He played “Bottom” in Gorilla Reps production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2016). In 2017, Alex had the privilege of playing Slank/Hawking Clam in Cidermill Playhouse’s production of Peter and the Starcatcher, as well as Deputy Dindon in the Axelrod Performing Arts Center’s performance of La Cage Aux Folles. Most recently Alex has had the great honor of performing with Hunger Theater as Putnam/Willard in The Crucible (2019). His TV credits include The Good Cop (2018), and The Blacklist (2019). Alex’s directorial debut, Shadows of the Night, which he scored as well, is currently on the festival circuit. Regardless of the self perform-otion, I am sincerely thrilled to have an outlet that maintains the tradition of love, warmth, and good cheer for one another this year. Nothing can stop the Holiday Spirit.
Santa only speaks English here, but if you would like a translator, we will get one of our elves to help! Let us know ahead of time if you have a special language request, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you and your family! [email protected]
