New musical Another Night Before Christmas at the Bridge House Theatre
New Christmas musical on the London fringe.
A new Christmas musical will run at the Bridge House Theatre in Penge, south east London this holiday season.
Produced by Bridge House Productions SE20 Limited and Climar Productions, Another Night Before Christmas features book and lyrics by Sean Grennan and music by Leah Okimoto and runs from 28 November to 23 December 2016, with official press nights on 29 and 30 November 2016.
"It’s Christmas Eve and for Karol, a 30-something, overworked and underpaid social worker, the Festive Season can’t be over soon enough! To her, this time of year is full of over-indulgence, over priced everything and unfulfilled hopes and wishes. Walking home from her office party she meets a scraggly-bearded ‘homeless’ man to whom she gives her bag of leftover office party food. Thinking nothing more of it, she settles in for her ‘non’ Christmas Eve for one - a truly peaceful and silent night. However like the best laid plans they are rudely interrupted when the man from earlier appears in her flat . But who is he, a half-crazed burglar as she believes? Or could Santa Claus really have come to town?"
The production will star Olivier Award winner George Maguire and Rachael Wooding, with voices overs from Rachel Tucker and Oliver Tompsett. It will be directed by Guy Retallack.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
