Naughtiness has taken over the people who dwell in the little seaside village of Wellington and Santa is ready to take the law into his own hands.

He’s made a list and checked it twice – so, which list are you on? Did you buy caged eggs? Park in a disabled parking spot? Secretly record a phone call with your inappropriate boss for political leverage? Then you better watch out. Because Santa Claus is coming to BATS Theatre, and it’s either good tidings, or a total Xmassacre!

Award-winning theatre company A Slightly Isolated Dog (Don Juan, Jekyll and Hyde) with director Leo Gene Peters bring their raucous, sexy signature style to BATS Theatre’s annual chaotic Christmas celebrations this year. They’ve shaken up Don Juan, they’ve torn Jekyll and Hyde to shreds, now it’s the time to do the same to Santa Claus, with world-class clowning and twisted pop songs.
