About Mrs. Lollie Claus of Nevada

Carla Wilson, Mrs. Lollie Claus, is a member of the Worldwide Santa Claus Network, Santa Nana University, and the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santa’s and Mrs. Claus’, and Nationwide Santa’s. 

The year 2020 created challenges for many.  Performers and entertainers suddenly found themselves seeking new ways to share their skills with audiences as live productions were halted.  An opportunity to be a virtual Mrs. Claus presented itself and with much excitement Mrs. Lollie Claus was born.  With a passion to bring the character alive for young and old at different venues and events Mrs. Lollie Claus partnered with her longtime friend, Nevada Santa, to help spread the spirit of Christmas all year long.

Since 1981 Carla Wilson, Mrs. Lollie Claus, has performed in community and semi-professional musical and non-musical stage productions throughout northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe.  Some of her most notable roles were in productions with Western Nevada Musical Theater Company and Proscenium Players in Carson City along with one season in the chorus with the Nevada Opera.  She has also directed many community theater productions and murder mystery dinner theater locally.  Over the past 5 years her performing career has expanded into film doing commercials for local companies such as Renown Hospital along with roles in locally produced short films and film series productions.

In 2011 the spirit of Christmas took a hold on her passion for performing and combined it with using her talents to bring joy, love, and happiness to all she could when she joined the cast of the V&T Railway Commission’s Polar Express™ Train Ride Event. This magic of the season led to the birth of Lollipop the Elf on Polar Express and as lead entertainer on the Virginia-Truckee Railroad’s Candy Cane Express a role she continues to perform on the Candy Cane Express.  Along with these events, Mrs. Lollie Claus and Lollipop the Elf shared their spirit with charitable groups such as Urban Roots in Reno, Food for Thought and the Children’s Museum in Carson City.

From 2011 through 2015, Carla performed at The Polar Express Train Ride Event in Carson City and The Candy Cane Express on the historic Virginia-Truckee Railroad in Virginia City. From 2016 through 2021, she was the Artistic and Production Director of the Polar Express™ Train Ride Event. Her passion for using her creative talents was again fueled by the magic of the spirit of Christmas in a different capacity. 

Carla Wilson is a non-smoker, has been fully vaccinated for COVID, has an updated background check, and is fully insured.
