Following the sell out success of Michelle Magorian and Robert Buckley’s TINSEL in 2019, The Studio produces its second full scale musical under the multi-award winning direction of John-Paul McCrohon and the musical eyes of award winning MD Daf Hughes. The acclaimed Charlotte Turnbull completes the production team, returning as Choreographer.
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 TV 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.A cast of adults and children reveal the twists and turns of a dastardly political plot to meddle, manipulate and modernise. With thirteen original songs and a supersonic flying machine, Operation Santa is a bewitching Christmas Musical for the modern media age.
