Opening at the Bridge House Theatre on the 28th November, Another Night Before Christmas is a new musical about getting into the Christmas spirit.
The UK premiere production of Sean Grennan (book and lyrics) and Leah Okimoto’s (music) musical directed by Guy Retallack will star West End stars George Maguire and Rachael Wooding as well as voiceovers provided by Rachel Tucker and Oliver Tompsett.
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?
Another Night Before Christmas follows Bridge House Theatre’s previous productions of It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol … More or Less and the award-winning Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story.
George Maguire is an Olivier Award winning actor who is best known for his performance in hit musical Sunny Afternoon, while Rachael Wooding is a West End star and appeared on Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year.
Rachel Tucker is currently appearing in hit musical Wicked as Elphaba and Oliver Tompsett recently appeared in Guys and Dolls at the Phoenix Theatre as Sky Masterson.
