Santa drops into Ropery Hall
Christmas is just around the corner and with the festive season comes a traditional family show from the Barton upon Humber based Duckegg Theatre Company.
The show, which will be performed at Ropery Hall, from December 17 to December 22, features a hapless Father Christmas whose trip around the world on Christmas Eve doesn’t go quite according to plan.
Written by Barton born playwright Haley Cox with music by Ben Pringle, the production is suitable for children aged three years and over and their families.
“It’s that time of year when Santa is preparing for his marathon round-the-world trip and asking if the children of Barton have been really good this year,” said Haley.
“With his really big sack at the ready, his reindeer (and their carrots) pawing at the ground, it’s time for Santa to get out of his really hot, steamy bath and out into the cold night air.”
“But things don’t quite go to plan on Santa’s trip around the world as he encounters cheeky Reindeer, a confusing Santa-Nav 6s and a collision with The Old Mill.”
“Don’t miss this warm and giggly show which features professional actors from Duckegg as well as young people from the Youth Theatre,” Haley urges.
The show is running every evening starting at 6pm and there are also matinee performances starting at 2pm from December 19 to December 22.
Tickets for each of the performances cost £8 for adults and £6 concessions. Family tickets (two adults and two children) are also available for £24. Tickets can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk Craft Gallery or by calling01652 660380.
