Bonfire Night has been and gone and Christmas is fast approaching (48 days for those who aren’t counting) !!! As well as drinking gallons of mulled wine, eating platefuls of mince pies and singing christmas carols on repeat, I can hardly wait to indulge in some of this years festive theatre! Here are the christmassy productions I’m most looking forward to this winter.
I was lucky enough to catch this one last year during its run at the Birmingham Rep and I can’t wait to see it again on its UK tour! Great fun for the whole family and a hilarious throwback to fond memories of school nativities back in the day!
Of all the pantomimes I saw last year, the Belgrade’s stood out. Hilarious, exciting, interactive and outrageous – everything a good panto should be!
Each year the fantastic Made at Curve team produce new and innovative Christmas productions. Last year’s Scrooge was a huge success so I can’t wait to see what magic -this classic festive musical and stellar cast will hold!
A production which is synonymous with christmas! The Birmingham Royal Ballet has dazzled audiences with its Nutcracker for over 27 years and this year is bound to be as enchanting as ever.
This year the Birmingham Rep is promising to deliver a spectacular new version of this much loved classic!! I’ll definitely be donning my ruby red slippers and heading over the rainbow for a piece of the action!
Can you ever see too many pantomimes?? I’d say no. Its a shame that like last year a lot of the local pantomimes seem to be going for the same storyline, but here are a few I’m hoping to catch!
Over The Top – Belgrade Theatre, Coventry – A pun-filled pantomime for the grown ups!
So there we have it !! Thats most definitely enough to keep me busy over the Christmas season and I can’t wait !! I’ll be reporting back to Theatress to keep you well informed on what is and isn’t worth your hard earned cash.
