CALENDAR OF EVENTS for 2017

Australian premiere of 'Santa’s Story', presented in association with the Jewish Holocaust Centre and starring Aviva Pelham.

When 90-year-old Santa Pelham was persuaded to write her fascinating life story it was intended just so her memoir would be there for future generations. But Santa's Story became something more: a cathartic Jewish experience, an inspiration for song and recently, a one woman show performed by her daughter, South African diva, Aviva Pelham.
