Eric the Elf's Chaotic Christmas
Written and Composed by Andy McGregor
Director - Julie Ellen
Designer - Claire Halleran
A very special show for wee ones this Christmas time - join Eric on his adventure to save Christmas.
It’s Eric’s first day working in Santa’s Grotto and he is about as excited as an Elf can be. But what starts out as a magical day filled with fun soon goes wrong, as Eric is left all on his ownsome with the future of Christmas resting entirely on his rather small shoulders. Thankfully a whole bunch of his little human pals have shown up, little children from all over Scotland and beyond. Surely if they work together they can get the job done?

It’s Christmas, but it’s hard to celebrate with no cards, tree, presents or food. If only Esmerelda the chicken would agree to laying an egg…but Esmerelda just won’t be persuaded, unless she hears her favourite story – Rudolf. And so, using their imaginations, the objects in their tiny house and a strong sense of the ridiculous our two unlikely storytellers attempt the tale of Rudolf, the reindeer that just doesn’t fit in.
