It’s Christmas Eve but Holly isn’t happy.
All she’s ever wanted from Santa is to meet her real Dad for the first time. And every time, Santa’s failed to deliver, bringing lots of useless presents instead.
Well, Holly’s had enough. This year she has a plan. She’s going to wait up and trap Santa when he arrives and get from him the only present she’s ever wanted.
But that’s only the beginning of the adventure: add in a very dim helper called Bumblehole, a touch of magic dust and a Teddy Bear with an evil masterplan and you have the ingredients for a magical, musical and downright mischievous Christmas show with a fresh moral.

"A weird, wild, highly inventive family show... the kids around me were having a whale of a time."
"This beautifully unlikely play has heart to match its humour. This is the most properly Christmassy show of the season."
"A hilariously inventive and unconventional extravaganza. A hoot...vivid, stylish... witty. Warmly recommended."
