Here’s some of the Christmas theatre we’ve seen in Bristol, rounded up in one place:
Kid Carpet Noisy Nativity
Best For – Four to Eleven year olds
This wonderful piece of theatre is definitely top of our 2019 favourites list. With fantastic songs including Tears at Christmas and Jesus is a Hedgehog, this fantastic take on the nativity will see Mary and Joseph flying to Bethlehem on the back of a golden eagle and a God who is a lot more chilled out than his reputation.
Kid Carpet Noisy Nativity is playing at the Spielman Theatre at Tobacco Factory Theatres until 05 January 2020.
Kirk Vs Ming
Best For – Adults
This fun filled parody of Kirk’s Star Trek Vs Flash Gordon’s Ming the Merciless, is a space battle which features a drag queen, werewolf type monsters and a whole lot of naked baubles.
Kirk Vs Ming is at the Spielman Theatre until Sunday 05 January 2020
Tobacco Factory Theatre
Best For – Families
Tobacco Factory Theatres always produce a cracking Christmas show every year and this one’s no exception. It’s funny, warm and fuzzy with good triumphing over evil through careful recycling and strong friendships.
Snow White is at Tobacco Factory Theatres until 19 January 2020.
Undercover Christmas Club
The Wardrobe Theatre
Best For – Older Teens and Adults
A mince pie a day keeps a puritan away. This show celebrates Christmas undercover through singing, merriment, some quirky stories and the best audience interaction.
Undercover Christmas Club is on at The Wardrobe Theatre until Sunday 22 December 2019.
This gentle story will delight preschoolers through physical theatre, puppetry and a little stage magic. Fun, forgiveness and horticulture are at the heart of this gem at The Wardrobe Theatre.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is at The Wardrobe Theatre until Tuesday 31 December 2019.
The Bristol Hippodrome
Best For – Families
If celebs, a whole lot of joking about the moniker and a battle on Love Island floats your boat after King Rat sinks it, then Dick Whittington at The Bristol Hippodrome is the Christmas celebration for you.
Dick Whittington is at The Bristol Hippodrome until Sunday 05 January 2020.
