Coming up this winter in Leicester

If you are looking for entertainment as we plunge head long into winter, here in Leicester you are spoiled for choice.
DeMontfort Hall has their annual pantomime starring local heroes Sam Bailey and Martin Ballard in Peter Pan. Also starring Corrie’s Kevin Kennedy, the all flying family extravaganza runs from 15 December right through to 2 January
Over at Leicester Haymarket their Christmas show is a reworking of the old classic, Treasure Island. Written by Bake Off presenter Sandi Toksvig , this is family entertainment with puppets and live action. It runs from 13 December to 6 January
The Little Theatre continues its Christmas tradition with Mother Goose as its annual pantomime. Devised and directed by resident know-it-all John Bale this is sure to be as popular with youngsters and the not so young as it is every year. It runs from 14 December to 6 January.
Curve traditionally avoids pantomime and presents festive offering for adults and children. This year’s grown up musical is the evergreen White Christmas starring Danny Mac fresh from his triumph in Sunset Boulevard last year. Joining him in this Irving Berlin classic will be Emma Williams, Dan Burton and Monique Young. It runs from 6 December to 13 January so there is no excuse to miss out. For the youngsters there is a departure form the annual Roald Dahl fun with a new production on Dr Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat directed by Curve’s Suba Das. The Cat is in Leicester from 8 December to 12 January, the ideal way to occupy your little monsters over the holidays.
Curve has an exciting year coming up in 2019 with brand new productions and classic revivals so watch out for announcements soon.
