SANTA’S LOST HIS HO HO HO!
“It’s the night before Christmas. The Christmas Tree is twinkling. The reindeer are ready. The presents are piled high. But something is missing at the North Pole – Santa has lost his laugh! Instead of saying “Ho, Ho, Ho”, he’s saying “Oh No, No No!” Help our Christmas friends bring Santa’s laugh back in time for his trip around the world on Christmas Eve! It’s a fun-filled show, with reindeer, elves, snowmen, presents and Christmas treats.
Our highly popular Christmas show is back for 2022, incorporating all the fun and magic of the most magical day of the year, with opportunities for children to join in the performance and develop skills such as characterisation and speaking before an audience. It’s laugh-out-loud fun for everyone!
“Welcome to the Hullaballoo Zoo! There are so many things to see and do! You can visit lots of amazing animals, including exotic birds, friendly bears and Gertie the Orangutan, who is always giggling. Mr I M Cuckoo is here to show you around… but something’s wrong. The animals are sad, and they need something to cheer them up. Can you help make them smile again?”
“Zoo Party!” is a fun introduction to the animals of the world, as we take a tour of the Hullaballoo Zoo to cheer up all the animals. There are reptiles, jungle animals, Australian bush animals, birds, bears and more! There are lots of dress-ups and parts to play for children from the audiences, songs to sing and dance to, funny jokes, and a story to join in. There’s even some magic! It’s the perfect start to the summer for children aged 3-10, and a wonderful way to celebrate all the diverse animals of the world.
Carp’s School Holiday performances provide 45 minutes of high-energy, interactive fun for all children from 3 to 12 – and their parents!
Select from the following Eight Shows:
THE LAUGH OUT LOUD SHOW!

THE T-REX TEA PARTY!
Join us for a T-RIFIC T-Rex Tea Party! Dance with the Diplodocus! Sing with the Stegosaurus!

So sharpen your teeth, practice your roars, and let’s all pretend to be dinosaurs! It’s a dinosaurumpus!
King Cranky Pants’ court is in an uproar! Sir Lee, his famous Knight, has disappeared and a fierce fire breathing dragon is heading straight toward his castle! He needs a hero to save the day!
There’s trouble in Fairytale Land – Prince Charming is tired of the Princesses getting all the glory – so he’s leaving his story! He wants to explore other fairytales and find a happier ending – for him. But Rapunzel can’t hear a word he says, and Sleeping Beauty is snoring!
WE’RE ALL SUPERHEROES!
A superhero is coming to visit today! But this hero is unlike any you’ve ever met! This cape-wearing crusader will teach us that we all have superpowers, everyone is special in their own way, and boys and girls are equally strong and capable. Discover your superpower and learn how to be a super friend, too!

VIRTUAL SCHOOL HOLIDAY SHOWS!
Carp Productions are also offering Eight Virtual Performances for throughout 2022! We have a range of shows on lots of topics popular with children. Our virtual shows run for around 35 minutes and still include all the elements of a Carp Productions show you’d see at a library (with a few additional funny sound effects!) We chat to the kids and keep them involved as though they are in the room. At the end of the show we suggest craft activities which are relevant to the theme of the show and as always, encourage them to read books and even act out their favourite stories at home, just as we are doing.
