We are overjoyed to be celebrating the season by bringing back this family favourite for 2022! Come experience our heart-warming tale about finding the true meaning of Christmas, sprinkled with comedy and a big dollop of the season’s magic. Join Kelly and Alana on their adventure of jolly proportions, through the North Pole, meeting Santa’s chief elf and the jolly big man himself. Spread the season’s cheer with this feel-good tale for all to delight in.
