Christmas at the Unicorn Theatre

This Christmas, the Unicorn Theatre is presenting spectacular family theatre for all ages.

Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost is a frighteningly funny and delightfully spooky retelling of the comic novel for everyone aged 7 and over. With spine-tingling magic and ghoulish effects, this show is a warming Winter treat about an ancient and terrifically tired ghost trying to spook the rational family that moves into his ancestral home. Playing 10 Nov – 5 Jan.

For younger audiences, The Wolf, The Duck and The Mouse is a new stage adaptation of the brilliantly subversive and much-loved picture book for ages 3 – 7. When Mouse is gobbled up by a wolf, the last thing he expects to find is Duck, who was, until Mouse arrived, taking a nap. Turns out it’s pretty nice living inside the belly of the beast with a new friend! But if they want to keep things rosy, they must hatch a plan to keep wolf safe… Playing 15 Nov – 5 Jan.

Make your trip extra special by booking a post-show workshop after selected performances of each show. There are also plenty of family-friendly things to do in the local area to help you make a day of it. Don’t forget to visit the Unicornershop in the theatre foyer for Christmas stocking fillers and tasty treats.
