SYNOPSIS
A fantastic, original Aussie Christmas adventure. Join Rudolph in his quest to find a team of local Australian animals capable of pulling Santa’s sleigh. But watch out for the Dingo!! Includes a visit from Santa himself!

ABOUT OUR SHOWS
All of our shows are fully staged musicals lasting one hour (including Q&A). The music was written by Tim Smith (The Lion King) & Luke Hunter (Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys)

Meerkat Productions encourage audience participation and active engagement in all of our performances and we use puppetry to fully engage the students and to broaden the possibilities of the way we stage our shows.

Our post-performance Q&A is structured and focused on the themes raised in the show and a behind the scenes insight into how our set, props, puppets, etc. work and how they were made.

We provide all of the staging and sound requirements, all we need from you is a performance space 8m by 5m, plus enough room for the students to sit and watch the show.
