National Elf -The Story

Incredible Xmas -The Story

Ben doesn't want to do his homework of writing a Christmas story, it's far more fun watching TV, Yuletube or playing his switch. Mum threatens to cancel Christmas and in a fit of temper Ben throws all his books on the floor. All of the stories become muddled and with some pantomime magic a new book appears - in the film and in your classroom!  Prince Charming arrives and realises that everything has gone very wrong.

 

The audience will become the 'Creative Powers' and will journey with Ben throughout well known pantomime and children's stories to help everyone get back to where they belong. They will need to use their imaginations, get out of their chairs, shout and laugh as they help create settings, invent a rap, make the sounds and talk to the characters. They will be having so much fun they wont even realise they are learning all kinds of story writing tricks along the way.  From pirates to Sally Jotter, Peter Pan to Aladdin, these wonderful characters help Ben and the audience to create the most 'Incredible Christmas Story' ever!  Will mum cancel Christmas? Not with your help!

Santa has finally eaten too many mince pies and is struggling to get up and deliver this years presents. The workshop elves are too busy playing the latest video games, making Tik Tok videos and fighting over followers to make the toys, they are all complaining that they can't be bothered.  Christmas is in jeopardy and something needs to be done.  

 

Sam is playing "Pantomonium" on his TV when "Doc Leaf" the elf appears and asks him to save Christmas. Sam doesn't understand all this "healthy" stuff and even though his dad is in hospital is reluctant to help.  A magic spell is cast, in the film and in your school, and the screen becomes a portal for Doc and lots of well known pantomime characters to turn the audience into 'The National Elf Service'. Everyone must embark on a mad cap adventure to get the inhabitants of Lapland fit and elfy!  

The journey to save Christmas is not easy and Sam has a lot to learn - will he be able to use his knowledge to save more than Christmas in the end?  The brains, bodies, voices and imaginations of the audience will hold the key.

The Educational Twist

Throughout the pantomime antics we include PSHE and national curriculum areas supporting positive health and wellbeing and literacy. Together the pupils and the characters will discover new things. In 'National Elf Service' they will explore how to improve their physical and mental health and the importance of looking after themselves and others. In 'The Incredible Christmas Story' we encourage reading, writing and offer ideas on how stories can be created and brought to life.

 

To give you a taste of how it works -  When Catnip Evergreen arrives she enlists everyone in the "Hungry Games" - It's a matter of survival! Big-Atchoo  the Mokepon has a terrible cold and needs to learn a thing or two about hygiene. Prince Charming needs help to woo the Princess and with the help of the audience writes some modern poetry (a rap) the Wolf needs help as he's lost his setting, Sally Jotter reveals the magic of imagination and Aladdin shows us the power of description.

The Interaction

During the film pupils will continually take part in fun audience interaction. 

Can your pupils find the magic portal  or blank book in their classroom?

You will be urged to complete tasks set by the characters.

Offer suggestions, advice, and help save Christmas.

You will be sent a clear and simple guide accompanying the film explaining how everything works, with some simple ideas as to how the digital experience can be enhanced within your school.

If you want to make the show really come to life we are offering a brief live online training session for teachers as part of the film package.
