ELVES IN SPACE
It is the night before Christmas and all through the house nothing is moving…Except for AN ALIEN SPACE CRAFT.
The elves have one big day each year, and it's here! When an alien spacecraft appears, they are unsure what to do.
Are they being invaded? Will this stop Christmas? Things get very interesting when the elves decide to take matters into their own hands and enter the spacecraft. Will they get back in time for Christmas, or ever? Come join us for this three day pantomime creation workshop "Elves in Space", and find out for yourself. Created under the Safety Net philosophy, the students are guaranteed to be supported to take creative risks, as they write, design, and rehearse this original pantomime before performing for friends and family on the last day.
Dates:Monday 14th to Wednesday 16th December Time:9.30-4pm each day. Performanceof the Pantomime is at 4pm on Wednesday Cost: $298
Choose Your Character
Before the workshop we will send out an email with the following characters for you to choose from. You will select your top 4 preferences or can opt for us to choose for you. All characters can be played by either gender.
Captain Elfington - The brave leader of the elves. Rumour has it that in a battle against the gnomes, Captain Elfington may have had a hit to the head with sugar candy and their best days may be behind them. Pressure to retire is great, but Captain Elfington's resistance is greater.
First Mate Blarney - is an elf of action and is irritated by Captain Elfington's lack of smarts, yet First Mate Blarney respects who Captain Elfington WAS so fixes their mistakes and lets them take credit, Fast, Efficient and there to save the day.
Coolio - Chillin' like a Villian is the phrase of the day when Coolio is in town. Normally the elf DJ and Dance Instructor, Coolio has been sent to teach Captain Elfington responsibility after the smoke machine incident…something Coolio will not talk about. Very cool, hip, funky, and believes music and dance is the answer, now what is the question.
Ninja Elf - A great student of Elf Kundoo, the Ninja Elf has all the moves. Sadly while they take point on everything, often the plan doesn't go the way they think but somehow they still end up winning. A confident warrior and saviour to all the planet…well that is what they would tell you.
Pickle elf - is one of the chefs from Santa's workshop. The problem is Pickle is obsessed with ... you guessed it Pickling. They Pickle everything, I mean everything! Pickled candy canes anyone? They have no idea that everyone hates their pickles because elves are generally kind and because Captain Elvington loves their pickles. This makes Pickle think everyone must. They are happy to go on this adventure to see if they can try and pickle snow...their dream achievement.
Wayne - Wayne hates the cold, they sneeze, roll their ankle and complain. They think everything is out to get them, and often end up in funny situations that see them collapse in despair over nothing. Yet in the end, they find their inner hero.
Fizzle - A fiery Alien that is as subtle as a sledgehammer. Think first then speak is not something Fizzle knows how to do. The leader of the aliens, yet more like a petulant child, complete with tantrums.
Glungo - If there was an award for getting it wrong it would go to Glungo. Glungo thinks they know everything that could be known about Earthlings. Not so. It should be clear when they initiate a conversation with a tree, but somehow Glungo convinces Fizzle they are smart.
Kraaaaaaaw - A Jumpy expert in Alien self-defence, Kraaaaaaw, is the master of disguise (not) and the feared warrior, (also not). When there is a battle, Kraaaaaw takes lead unless of course there really is one and it becomes clear that maybe they are not as brave and fearsome as they make out.
Plinky - The Mechanic, Plinky is the voice of reason to the group, and questions a lot of what Glungo says, much to Glungo's frustration. Often the alien with solutions, Plinky is not listened to that much. Plinky is also the peacemaker and a friend and supporter of Bleepo.
Bleepo - The newest to the crew, Bleepo is the Alien given the jobs that everyone hates. Good-hearted and kind, but also a bit lazy, Bleepo is lucky to have Plinky to protect them. Guarding the Alien Ship was the job that could take Bleepo to the next level, it is also an opportunity to take a nap. This is what Bleepo does.
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer - Our loveable Rudolph, is having a break as the fine weather forecasted means Rudolph can start Holidays early. Just having a nice walk in the forest is all Rudolph wants, yet finding Aliens and being confused as a human, makes the day take an unusual twist, Lucky Rudolph has TED, her big brother to guide her.
