If you usually head to the theatre over the festive period – this is a great alternative for just £5.
A 4* production and a Guardian classical pick
“Such a wonderfully engaging performance of Pauline Viardot’s Cinderella. Perfect for keeping 8year olds mesmerised on a rainy Sunday. A magical production indeed.”
“Very good! It is rare to find operas for families performed, staged and filmed with this accuracy! A valuable Christmas gift.”
Family favourite theatre company Wrongsemble return this Christmas with HUMBUG: a COVID-safe family show that promises to delight and unite all ages. This innovative digital production will allow families to enjoy seven filmed episodes of this exciting story throughout December, accompanied by an interactive HUMBUG ‘Fact File’ filled with 13 artefacts sent directly to their homes.
HUMBUG takes place deep beneath the city, where a secret world full of wonder awaits; a place where wizards bake endless gingerbread, goblins bottle festive cheer, and there’s a whole department devoted to detangling fairy-lights! This is the Ministry of Make Believe…But recently, strange things have been happening at the Ministry. From nose-less snowmen, to exploding baubles, and a forest of bald Christmas trees – things are not quite right… It’s almost like someone (or something) is trying to sabotage Christmas! Together with Secret Agent Dash, audiences will help to solve the mystery and save the day!
Starring a stellar cast of northern actors, and supported by cultural partners across Leeds including Leeds Libraries, Child Friendly Leeds, Leeds City College, Slung Low, 100% Digital Leeds, and Red Ladder Theatre Company, HUMBUG promises to transport the joy of Wrongsemble’s annual Christmas production into the safety of hundreds of audiences’ homes. Audiences will be able to enjoy HUMBUG throughout December, and re-watch as many times as they like – sharing the experience with those they may be unable to meet in person.
Dates: 1st December – 5th January Running time: 7 short films
Ticket prices: £10 for the whole family + a Fact File
