SANTA’S Naughty Elf returns this Christmas, promising more mischief and mayhem.

The annual Customs House show is always a hit with under sevens and Elfluent the Elf is back for the festive season to find out which children have been naughty and nice.

Hosted at The Central Library’s Theatre in Prince George Square, South Shields, this year Elfluent has forgotten to write Santa’s naughty or nice list in Santa’s Naughty Elf – The Night Before Christmas.

This is the fourth year The Customs House has produced a Santa’s Naughty Elf show and already 1,500 tickets have been snapped up for the show, where children also get to meet Santa.

Customs House executive director Ray Spencer, said: “Santa’s Naughty Elf is the perfect show to get children ready for the Christmas season, while introducing them to theatre.

“It’s always well attended and there is a great festive feel, which the parents and grandparents who attend also lap up.”

The plot revolves around Elfluent who has gone and lost Santa’s naughty or nice list - well if the truth be known he didn’t bother to make one up.

Now, at the eleventh hour, he has had to travel down from the North Pole with his sister to find out which children are naughty or nice.

But what he discovers in the end is children can be naughty and nice.

l Santa’s Naughty Elf – The Night Before Christmas runs from Saturday, December 15 to Monday, December 24. Tickets are £6 for children and £5 for adults and are available from Tel. 454 1234 or by visiting
