Hatti and Pippa’s Christmas Adventure

“we jumped, sang, laughed and clapped throughout fifty minutes of fantasy and fun with Pippa the Penguin”

Gill Martin, Mark Aspen Reviews December 2022

It is Christmas Eve and Pippa the Penguin has tired of life at the Zoo. She has hatched a plan to escape and return home to the South Pole for Christmas. 

With the help of her friend Hatti, she sneaks past the seals and otters, the monkeys and gorillas, the giraffes and lions, and finds herself out in the big wide world!

As her journey begins Pippi runs into all sorts of scrapes but thankfully finds sanctuary in the ocean, where she meets an enthusiastic octopus who is keen to help.  Unfortunately, with so many tentacles, his directions become a little muddled- sending Pippa all the way to the North Pole! 

underwater scenes, sun-lit sparkling seas and snowscapes creates the mood for magic to happen.

Just as Pippa is losing hope, she hears the gentle ringing of sleigh bells and Father Christmas appears before her!  After telling him her story, he gives Pippa the greatest gift of all and takes her home to be with her family for Christmas. 

This atmospheric and festive production is full of fun, music & audience participation- the perfect family show to get you into the Christmas spirit!  Suitable for children aged 3–8yrs.  Running Time 50 minutes.

After a successful run at Hampton Hill Theatre in December 2022 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.
