The Performance

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 computer games and chatting on social media to make the toys and they are complaining that they can't be bothered.  Christmas is in jeopardy and something needs to be done.  That's when "Small & Mighty" AKA Dock Leaf, decides he needs human help.  Dock infiltrates the online game the elves are playing and sends a message to Sam who is playing the game in his lounge. Sam doesn't understand all this "healthy" stuff and even though his dad is in hospital is reluctuant to help.  A magic spell is cast and the T.V. becomes a portal for Dock and lots of well known characters to turn the audience into 'The National Elf Service' and everyone embarks 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? A lot of characters and the brains, bodies, voices and imaginations of the audience will hold the key.


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 positive attitudes to health and well being.Together the pupils and Sam will discover how to improve their physical and mental health they will also learn something about staying safe.To give you a taste of how it works in the play - Sam and the audience must help little Red Riding Hood safely to Grandma's house and let's not ignore the unhealthy basket of cookies and cake that wont help Grandma run away from the Wolf (who is not all he first appears to be). When "Catnip Evergreen" jumps out the screen the audience must play her own healthy eating version of "The Hungry Games" - it's a matter of survival!


Throughout the show the pupils will take part in fun audience interaction and a lot of  laughter will occur whilst learning goes on underneath the surface.


"The pupils had the most fantastic time and picked up so much about the issues. A brilliant show whilst learning too." (Headteacher)
"It makes a change for a panto to promote good behaviour and not contradict what we teach each year" (Headteacher)
