A brand new musical for the modern media age
Now available for public performance and publication
When news breaks that Father Christmas is unable to work due to a stress related illness, 12 year old Emily Watson suspects a cover up. Together with 10 year old Henry Fowler, she forms the protest group ELF and forges an unlikely partnership with Charlie Hackett, a junior T.V. researcher desperate to make the big time. Their search for truth and justice leads them into a very grown up world of political corruption, fake news and possibly even to THE BIG MAN himself.
WATCH THE FIVE MINUTE TRAILER!
A cast of adults and children reveal the twists and turns of a dastardly political plot to meddle, manipulate and modernize. With thirteen original songs and a supersonic flying machine, Operation Santa is a Christmas Musical for the modern media age.
Performance Time - Approximately 2 hours 10 min, excluding interval.
A completely original score worthy of the
WEST END STAGE
A refreshingly original story
and a sack full of Christmas Spirit
This show deserves a bigger stage
