Father Christmas is lost somewhere in the North Pole and the reindeer have flu.
It's a crisis! Luckily some cheeky penguins from the zoo are on hand to save the day. Well, hopefully.
Penguins aren't known for their flying skills, but in the magical world of Christmas plays anything is possible with a generous sprinkling of enchanted flying dust. Also, the play features -amongst others- reindeer, elves and of course Father Christmas and Mrs Christmas.
CHARLIE: That was wonderful!
ALFIE: Flying is great fun!
MAX: We even looped-the-loop and flew upside-down!OPENSLAE: So, that was probably when Father Christmas fell out.
(All Penguins point to the sleigh in horror.)
ALL PENGUINS: Oh, no!

The penguins in London Zoo are too hot, even though it is winter. Alfie has the idea to write a letter to Father Christmas and ask if they could visit his home at the North Pole for a day. They all look forward to the freezing cold and being the first penguins in the Arctic.
Their wish is granted and they are taken by the reindeer and Father Christmas to the North Pole. Unfortunately all the reindeer get the flu and can't fly.
Christmas will have to be cancelled. Perhaps the penguins could pull Father Christmas' sleigh instead?
The penguins are all terribly affraid of flying, but finally agree to the plan. They go on a test flight and return, elated. The only problem is that they have lost Father Christmas! The elves and Mrs Christmas are in despair.
Will anyone find Father Christmas? Will anyone be able to deliver presents to the good children in time for Christmas?
