Chelsea Miller shares the role of Emily with another young actress in The Magic of Santa.

Young actress gets best Christmas wish ever

Pitt Meadows Chelsea Miller plays Emily in The Magic of Santa

For Chelsea Miller, Christmas really began in November.

She’s spent the past month immersed in fake snow, jingling bells, frosty snowmen and Santa.

“I just love Christmas,” says Miller, who is has the coveted role of Emily in Patrick Roberge Productions’ holiday musical The Magic of Santa.

“I just love how it brings Christmas cheer and other stuff.”

The Magic of Santa follows young Emily as she searches for her very own Christmas wish. With help from her new friends Rudy the Polar Bear, Mrs Claus, Skitter the Mouse and other loveable characters, Emily discovers the wonder of Santa’s magic.

Featuring dancing Christmas trees, rocking reindeer, and a magical Christmas cast, The Magic of Santa is a family holiday experience not to be missed.

Miller comes from a family of performers. Both her parents do voice overs for cartoons and her younger sister Jaeda Lily, 6, also acts.

However nine-year-old Miller only began acting last year. Since then, she’s been on a Fisher Price-Disney commercial and danced in the Great Big Boo.

She was asked to audition for The Magic of Santa because they needed a girl who could sing, dance, and act.

The audition was two and a half hours long and she beat out a dozens of other girls for the role. She is sharing the role with another young actress, just in case one of them fall sicks during the Christmas performances.

“I really tried my hardest,” says Miller, when asked about the audition.

“I really love to act.”

Since then, Miller, who is represented by PLAY Management in Vancouver, has landed several other acting gigs and just this week got called back for two more auditions.

• The Magic of Santa plays at the PNE Pacific Coliseum on Friday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 22 at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. For tickets, visit
