Wilde Tales and Gruesome Ghosts this Christmas!

Posted on

We may still be waiting for the Summer weather, but we’re thrilled to announce that our magical Christmas season is back, and this time we’re bringing you not one fantastic show, but two!

Tall Stories, the Olivier-nominated producers of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom, return with a sparkling new musical adventure for everyone aged 5 – 105, and a terrifying take on Oscar Wilde’s most gruesome ghost story for brave souls aged 12+.

From Wed 28 Nov – Sun 30 Dec, let Wilde Creatures take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond in this exciting adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales brought straight from the West End.

A live band of storytelling musicians bring characters from The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose and The Birthday of the Infanta to life, as they try to decide on the new statue. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student? These hauntingly beautiful tales are told with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.

From Tue 18 Dec, four valiant vaudevillians present their terrifying take on Oscar Wilde’s spirited spectacular, The Canterville Ghost.

When the Otis family move into Canterville Hall, they’re warned about the fearsome ghost that stalks its corridors. But the Otis family are a thoroughly modern bunch. Has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?

“A perfect Christmas treat… Children’s show or not, this is one of the most charming hours I have spent in a theatre all year.” ★★★★ Evening Standard (Wilde Creatures)

“A lively and entertaining re-telling of Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales” ★★★★★ The List (Wilde Creatures)
