It's hard being the only gnome amongst all the elves working for Santa, and Gnorman gets pretty picked on (although to tell the truth he isn't the nicest gnome either). Whilst out in the woods the elves leave Gnorman all alone...but they don't realise he has the sleigh keys and if he doesn't get back to the grotto in time then Christmas will be a disaster. Gnorman embarks on a fast paced, funny pantomime adventure where he needs to enlist the help of the panto baddies (and the audience) to save Christmas. Gnorman meets 'Captain Hook', 'The Ugly Sisters', 'Scrooge', 'The Giant', and 'Professor Snape' to name a few, and they all have to learn to embrace team work, empathy, and understanding to ensure everything ends happily ever after. We believe that wherever we perform the live theatre experience should be exceptional.
The Educational Twist
Throughout the pantomime antics we include PSHE curriculum areas supporting anti-bullying and encouraging teamwork and friendship. To give you a taste of how it works in the play - Gnorman has to collect enough friendship tokens to buy his train ticket back to lapland. Getting hold of friendship tokens isn't as easy as Gnorman thinks....especially when he is having to work alongside many pantomime baddies. A couple of his difficult dilemmas include:
Solving the long standing vendetta between Captain Hook and Peter Pan.
Helping The Ugly Sisters to become beautiful on the inside.
With the help of the pupils and the "birds of yay!" a lot of fun and laughter is had, whilst learning goes on underneath the surface.
