From B. Someday Productions and Walking Fish Burlesque comes a distinctly adult reboot of The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, an oft-neglected children’s book by L. Frank Baum. In this fantastical account of Kris Kringle’s origin, he’s discovered as an infant in the Forest of Burzee by the great Woodsman Ak, suckles at the teat of an anthropomorphic lioness, and is raised by a motley crew of fairies, sprites and wood nymphs. Of course, this adaptation isn’t just about the plot: The Early Adventures of Santa Claus might be your only opportunity this holiday season to see a whip-toting Father Christmas in a pair of red-velvet booty shorts.
Through Dec. 31, 8 p.m., $18, Walking Fish Theatre, 2509 Frankford Ave., 215-427-9255, bsomeday.org.
