When news breaks that Father Christmas is unable to work due to a stress related illness, 12 year old Emily Watson suspects a cover up. Together with 10 year old Henry Fowler, she forms the protest group ELF and forges an unlikely partnership with Charlie Hackett, a junior T.V. researcher desperate to make the big time. Their search for truth and justice leads them into a very grown up world of political corruption, fake news and possibly even to THE BIG MAN himself.
A cast of adults and children reveal the twists and turns of a dastardly political plot to meddle, manipulate and modernise. With thirteen original songs and a supersonic flying machine, Operation Santa is a bewitching Christmas Musical for the modern media age.
