Ellie & Starlight’s Christmas Adventure 2021

“Hos is just delightful as Ellie.  She has superb physicality and manages successfully to embody the spirit, enthusiasm and optimism of childhood, full of curiosity and very brave.  Gardiner is amicable, full of fun, and very much appreciated by the young audience who find him very funny as well as lovable.”

Celia Bard, Mark Aspen Reviews, December 2021

Ellie and her best Friend Starlight the Polar Bear are off on another adventure, only this time they are heading for the North Pole to find Father Christmas!
From the creators of Ellie & Starlight the Musical, playwright Kenneth Mason and writer Sarah Watson bring you Ellie & Starlight’s Christmas Adventure.

“… a fun and festive show with endearing characters, as heart-warming as a hot toddy.”   

Gill Martin, Culture & Travel Writer 

This heart-warming magical Christmas story is a tale of a little girl’s determination to find Father Christmas and tell him that all the boys and girls in her village have had to move to a new place.  

She must reach the North Pole before Christmas Eve or it will be too late and none of the children will get a Christmas present this year.  

Ellie and Starlight embark on a difficult journey across snowy mountains where they meet lots of different animals on their way to the North Pole.  Can you help them to find Father Christmas?

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

We went to see Ellie and Starlight as a family, and all three generations thoroughly enjoyed it. The music, magical storyline and audience participation all worked together to give a very important message in a highly enjoyable way.”

Rebecca Wright, Parent

After a successful run at Hampton Hill Theatre in December 2021, producer Stephen Leslie  opportunities to share this important story on a national and international scale.
