Buddy and Cocoa’s Christmas Adventure

“With catchy tunes and lively routines, the whole family will have an incredible time and go home with festively fabulous grin on their faces.”

Sadie Williams, Mark Aspen Reviews December 2023

Join Buddy and Cocoa the elves as they set off on a magical mission to find gold dust for Santa’s sleigh!

From the creators of Ellie & Starlight the Musical, Playwright Ken Mason and Producer Stephen Leslie bring you Buddy & Cocoa’s Christmas Adventure.

This heart-warming Christmas story is a tale about friendship, magic, and mischief, but above all else, the determination of two elves to make sure Christmas can happen!

“A delightful show, full of Christmas cheer! I liked the story and the sets. The three actors were great, too” 5/5

S Holland, Audience Member

Buddy and Cocoa must deliver magic dust to The North Pole before Christmas Eve or it will be too late and the sleigh will not take off, leaving all the children without Christmas presents this year. 

They embark on a difficult journey down to the earth’s core, meeting all sorts of exciting (and sometimes dangerous) underground creatures, before boarding The Middle Earth Shuttle to The North Pole.  All is going to plan but the shuttle fails to stop and continues up through the stratosphere all the way to the moon. Can you help them get back to The North Pole in time for Christmas Eve?

This atmospheric and festive production is the perfect family show to get you into the Christmas spirit.  Suitable for children aged 3 – 8yrs.

“Buddy and Cocoa’s adventure was enjoyed by an intergenerational family group ranging from two to 63! The cast were so enthusiastic and there was just enough audience participation. Lovely story that our two and three-year-olds followed easily. The venue was so welcoming and the staff were lovely and helpful. Highly recommend to complement Christmas week! 5/5″

C Gomez, Audience Member

After a successful run at Hampton Hill Theatre in December 2023 producer Stephen Leslie is looking forward to reviving the show at other theatres in future years.

With a cast of three and minimal but impressive set, the show lends itself to small and mid-scale venues.

The script is available upon request.
