FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 and their FAMILIES
Olive dreams of delivering presents to all the boys and girls at Christmas time. To do that she has to enlist in Santa’s Training School and pass her exams, then she can ride alongside Rudolph and Santa. Hoorah!
However, when Olive discovers there’s a NAUGHTY list – a group of children that are going to wake up to no presents on Christmas Day – she realises she has to stand up and say NO MORE.
Can Olive scrap the naughty list and make sure everyone gets a present on Christmas day? Will Olive pass her final exams and get to sail the skies with her idol Rudolph? Will she ever get a word in edgeways with her nightmare classmates Blitzen and Vixen?
Panto as we know it might not have fully returned yet, but Olive has, and she’s going to fight to make sure everybody gets some joy and laughter in their hearts in this festive show for the under 12s and their families.
