Dotcom to be Santa in MegaChristmas play

By Herald Online

Kim Dotcom will play Santa in an irreverent star-studded Christmas play in Auckland.

The internet mogul this morning tweeted the news he is taking the role of St Nick in the MegaChristmas play set to be held at The Basement theatre from December 12.

"I'm Santa in the #MegaChristmas play at The Basement. The funniest Xmas play ever. Get ur ticket now. Not for kids," he wrote.

The Basement theatre confirmed the news in a tweet sent minutes later.

MegaChristmas is billed as a Christmas pantomime filled with inappropriate festive jokes and "naughty Christmas Carols"

It starts with Rudolph the red nose reindeer waking up "savagely hung-over" and discovering Santa is missing.

He steals the magic sleigh and embarks on a severely time-restricted mission to save Christmas.

The play also features Labour politician Jacinda Ardern, 3News entertainment reporter David Farrier, established actors Shane Cortese, Oliver Driver and Siobhan Marshall and dozens more.

It was written by rising writer and director Nic Sampson and Barnaby Fredric.
