Perfumeries, Pixies and Panto: This Year's Festive Season at Sheffield Theatres

Perfumeries, Pixies and Panto: This Year's Festive Season at Sheffield Theatres

17 November 2021

Sheffield Theatres is preparing for Christmas across all three of its theatres, with a sublime musical comedy, a spectacular panto and a sprinkling of puppetry magic for little ones, as shows are set to delight all ages this festive season.

In the Crucible, the Christmas musical She Loves Me runs from Saturday 11 December 2021 to Saturday 15 January. A glorious romantic comedy musical from the songwriters of Fiddler on the Roof, and the writer of Cabaret, and based on the story that inspired You’ve Got Mail.

Amalia and Georg work together in a parfumerie in a picturesque Hungarian town. Constantly clashing, the two colleagues are at odds on the shop floor. But they do have one thing in common. They’ve both answered a lonely hearts advert and now live for the letters they exchange, unaware of the identity of their true loves. As they count down the shopping days to Christmas, love and snowflakes are in the air.

With a fantastic cast including Alex Young (Standing at the Sky’s Edge), David Thaxton (The Phantom Of The Opera) and Adele Anderson (Fascinating Aïda), She Loves Me will warm even the chilliest of winter evenings.

Over in the Lyceum legendary Dame, Damian Williams, returns in Sleeping Beauty, alongside comedy great Janine Duvitski (Benidorm), from Friday 3 December 2021 to Monday 3 January. Written and directed by Paul Hendy and produced by Evolution, the same team behind the smash hit, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty has lavish sets, hilarious jokes and fun for the whole family! Sleeping Beauty is sponsored by CityGrab.

For the younger family members, Little Angel Theatre presents The Pixie and the Pudding in the Studio from Saturday 11 December – Sunday 2 January.

When Charlie and her dad move to the farm from the city, everything seems to go wrong. Dolly the cow’s in a grump, there’s not an egg to be found, and even the cockerel has stopped crowing! If only they’d paid attention to the mysterious note left on their windowsill about a curious pixie and the pudding she likes to eat on Christmas Eve…

This brand new musical brings a tale from Scandinavian folklore to life with puppetry, original music and a sprinkling of pixie magic. Directed by Samantha Lane with music and lyrics by Barb Jungr.

All three Christmas productions are on sale now. Tickets can be booked through the Box Office in person, over the phone on 0114 249 6000 or at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
