Nickolai of the North



Have you ever wondered who filled Santa’s stocking when he was a boy? Or why he carries out his Christmas mission every year? All is revealed in this two act Christmas play with music.

A refreshing alternative to panto, it tells the magical story of Santa’s childhood. When villainess Magda destroys his home at the North Pole, young elf Nickolai is rescued by a flying reindeer. We follow his adventures as he grows up amongst humans, realises he is different and returns to the North Pole to seek his destiny and ultimately save the world’s children from Magda’s evil.

With 14 sensational songs from established composer Geoff Tinniswood, including backing tracks and vocals and containing traditional seasonal ingredients such as heroes, villains, witches, fairies, reindeer, wolves and goblins, ‘Nickolai’ is a sparkling family show that provides a fabulous opportunity for ensemble work.

The package includes mp3 music files of backing tracks, vocals and incidental music for performance and practice; lyrics; vocal music score (vocal line only) and the playscript with production notes and lyrics.
