Christmas Critters is the perfect performance to have during the lead up to Christmas. There are stories from Myrtle the Turtle - Rocking Croc teaches the children his favourite dance moves to his favourite songs and gets everyone dancing - and all the while Cheeky Monkey is constantly interrupting everything because he just can't wait to see Santa Claus.
Things get even funnier when Puppet Santa finally arrives. There are more songs and dancing but when each of the Christmas Critters tells Santa of all the outrageous things they want for Christmas, poor Santa is almost lost for words. He has to explain that you can’t always get exactly what you want for Christmas. A hippopotamus is a wonderful animal but you can’t keep one as a pet and Santa definitely can’t wrap one up and hang it at the end of your bed for Christmas morning … OR can he? Remember these are Christmas Critters.
With its combination of colourful puppets, fun activities, magic tricks and an impeccably dressed, adorable, miniature Santa Claus; Christmas Critters is the ideal performance for your centre to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.
Excellent. Very funny and kids totally engaged!

The children enjoyed the whole show. Teachers liked that it had a range of things – singing, jokes and audience participation.

The children enjoyed Eno the elf, the magic and learning all about the important things connected to Christmas. They loved being reindeer and having their photos taken with Santa.
