Mabel's Magnificent Flying Machine
Accident prone and instantly lovable, Mabel Mayfly is one of the ‘left behinds’, an elf who never gets to do the good stuff because her curiosity always gets her into trouble. She has discovered a way to make Santa’s sleigh travel 26 times faster around the world, without Rudolph and his other beloved reindeer.
To test her system, Mabel has taken her very own flying machine on a secret test flight and, due to a GPS malfunction, has crashed straight through the roof of the Gate Theatre.
Piece by piece, section by section, Mabel must, with the audience’s help, repair her radio connection, put her machine back together, and find her way home.
Mabel’s Magnificent Flying Machine is a beautiful new pop-up Christmas adventure about hope, realising what’s most important in life, and understanding that we are all talented in our own unique ways.
