Derby Theatre, 6th December 2013 – 11th January 2014
Get ready for a journey through history but with mince pies and mistletoe. It is Christmas 2013 and something is not quite right. In fact something is hideously, hopelessly, horribly wrong.
As children wait for Father Christmas and all the presents are beneath the tree, a fat old man slides down their chimney and nicks the lot! Can this be the real meaning of old Saint Nick?
But by chance one small boy spots the snatcher and sets off to save Christmas – from wartime austerity to Tudor cruelty back to Herod’s massacre of the innocents and the Dark Ages. Can Christmas be saved for the world?
Don’t miss this horribly adventurous Christmas treat for the whole family from Derby Theatre and Birmingham Stage Company!
“The action-packed festive adventure is a romp from start to finish. Live on stage the concept of highlighting history’s’ most gruesome bits comes to life fabulously. There are no weak performances in the entire cast”
“This is a wildly funny show. Adults get as much fun out of this as the children, if not more”
“Guaranteed to put a smile on your face”
“A mad rollercoaster of a production. Horrible Christmas has everything you need for a good night out”
