RELEASE: Bestselling author Bruce Templeton takes to the stage with new seasonal stories

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 7, 2017 (St. John’s) – This morning details were confirmed by the central office at the North Pole for an upcoming holiday performance from Santa’s assistant, Bruce Templeton. The Globe and Mail bestselling author, who has released three books to date, has a series of new stories that he will perform in St. John’s at the Johnson Geo Centre on Thursday, December 14, 2017.

Bruce Templeton show flyer imageThe new show about a young boy, called A Journey Back in Time with Nicholas, will follow the titular character’s expedition to find the perfect home for his teddy bear.

Templeton will take the audience along with Nicholas, back to 1939 where they’ll meet Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer before travelling even further back to nine other stops. At every turn, Nicholas will land in a magical moment of time where he’ll be greeted by historical figures with ties to the season. He’ll learn about the origins of the very teddy bear he’s seeking a home for in 1902, and then encounter Virginia O’Hanlon in 1897. Later in the show, Nicholas will land in 1843 and run into Charles Dickens as he pens A Christmas Carol, all before returning to 280 A.D. where Nicholas will meet the saint that shares his name.

With each spellbinding stop, Templeton will lead the audience and Nicholas through fantastical folklore as they relive and discover the true history of Christmas.

Known for his ability to lure an audience’s undivided attention through his delivery and content, Templeton uses his own life experiences to highlight virtues of life, family, youth and children. He demonstrates community and business leadership through being an example, living by his motto that it is your presence, not presents, that count.

Templeton is accredited by the Canadian Association of Public Speakers and has participated in TEDx Talks. He has dutifully assisted Santa for almost 40 years, is the only living Canadian inducted into the International Santa Claus Hall of Fame, and has been knighted as a Knight of St. Nicholas. The proceeds from all three of his books, including national and Globe and Mail bestseller The Man in the Red Suit (2012), The Man with the White Beard (2014) and Twenty-Four Teddy Bears (2016), have supported the Rotary International Polio Plus program.

Bar service will be available for those 19+ and the venue is fully accessible. The Newfoundland Chocolate Company is also supporting the production and will be on hand with a few treats and information on their confections at the event, at the perfect time of year!

Tickets are only $23 (plus applicable EventBrite service fees), and seating will be limited for this intimate evening. Tickets are available at https://manintheredsuit.wordpress.com/tickets or through the event’s Facebook listing at https://www.facebook.com/ManInTheRedSuit.

VIDEO: Bruce Templeton launches Twenty Four Teddy Bears!

Last Thursday on September 29, 2016 Bruce Templeton launched his latest publication Twenty Four Teddy Bears: A Christmas Journey. This latest book, published by Creative Book Publishing, rounds out a trilogy for Templeton. His initial release, The Man in the Red Suit, garnered international attention and was a Globe and Mail best seller. The second book in the series equaled in its success, and was called The Man with the White Beard.

Like the initial two, this new book is meant to be read in the lead up to Christmas with each chapter corresponding with a date in the month. The stories profile the folks who were recipients of special teddy bears that Bruce, in his efforts as Santa’s assistant, helps get to people in Newfoundland and Labrador.

If you missed the launch, take a look at this video, then be sure to visit the signings and sightings section of the website for all of Bruce’s upcoming appearances.
