Christmas is a wonderful time to go to the theatre; with the lights on the streets, Christmas trees on every corner, and the spirit of Christmas in full swing!
This Christmas, you truly are spoilt for choice and choosing which show to go to can be quite a tough task. However, with our definitive guide, we will give you the run-down of our favourite shows to go to this Christmas time.
White Christmas at the Dominion Theatre
White Christmas is the ultimate seasonal musical – and now at the Dominion Theatre led by an American Creative team, there is no better time to go and see it.
White Christmas is a production that is full of warm, glowing, Christmas energy that simply spreads out over the audience flawlessly.
With a cast of delightful singers and dancers, be engulfed into a story which sees the attempt to rescue a Vermont ski lodge, plagued by a lack of snow, by putting on a show!
With a festive soundtrack and a heart-warming story, this is a delight for theatre-goers of any age.
Nativity! The Musical at the Eventim Apollo
The classic and much-loved movie Nativity! has been earning rave reviews over the years since it’s re-invention for the stage, and this year it is back at the Eventim Apollo for another year running.
This production is as infectious as they come, and tells the story of an underperforming Coventry Primary School, which puts on a musical nativity to attract the attention of a Hollywood Producer.
Full of Christmassy hits, fun-loving characters and a joyous storyline, this is a story that touches the hearts of all that see it.
The Snowman at The Peacock Theatre
Has there been a year go by that you haven’t watched this animated classic? This is possibly the most popular Christmas theatre event for families and for good reason too. Babies are allowed to come and see this, and this does not overshadow the live orchestra or on-stage action; if anything, it adds to the whole atmosphere and acoustics of the room.
As The Snowman and the Boy are soared into the air as ‘Walking in the Air’ is played, you are swept away down memory to Christmases gone by.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium
The whole British Christmas economy is built on a backbone of great, funny, witty, and charming Pantomimes; and this year we are recommending you go to see Goldilocks and The Three Bears at the London Palladium.
Full of stars such as Paul O’Grady, Matt Baker, Julian Clary as well as many others, this is a hit show for families of any age.
Dame Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks’ circus is under threat from an evil rival circus owner and, with the help of their madcap circus friends, they’re battling to rescue their Big Top from ruin.
