A visit to Hull is the chance to jump on the festival train of Christmas shows with a great variety on offer this winter.
Where would Christmas shows be without the traditional pantomime? Well they don’t come much more traditional than Cinderella!
Audiences shall go to the ball this Christmas as Cinderella transforms from rags to riches, outwits her Wicked Stepmother and very Ugly Sisters, and with the help of her hilarious friend Buttons, father Baron Hardup and one very magical Fairy Godmother, wins the heart of the dashing Prince Charming.
Playing the role of Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother will be multi-award winning stage, television, film actress and singer Anita Dobson.
Hull Truck brings another feast for the eyes with its production of Oliver Twist. This beautifully presented telling of the Charles Dickens classic is a sometimes funny , sometimes moving, sometimes tragic telling of the well know tale that is a must for those that love their theatre intimate and thoughtfully composed.
Do you love your pantomime a little more chaotic? If so then you can’t miss the Beauty and the Beast as told by Middle Child Theatre. Returning for its 7th year this rock and roll retelling of the classic fairy tale is becoming a wild tradition in Hull’s Christmas calendar.
A festive re-imagining of the Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale. Being young can be hard and you just cant wait to grow up. You’ll be happy, you’ll be beautiful. you’ll fly….right? This story is about being a duckling not a swam.
This tinsel filled treat is prefect for those under 7.
