Following its run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the musical will head to London from the 1st to the 30th December 2023.
Created by Valen Shore, a songwriter and artist whose work has been featured on Riverdale, Lucifer, and Pretty Little Liars, and award-winning writer, actor and filmmaker Alison Zatta, Christkirkpatrickmas combines A Christmas Carol with It’s a Wonderful Life and *NSYNC.
It’s Christmas Eve 2009: seven years into the world-famous boy band’s indefinite “hiatus”, *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick has until midnight to make a wish that could change his life forever. A parody musical featuring 12 original songs and plenty of 90s nostalgia!
Directed by Riley Rose, the cast for the production includes: Riley Rose Critchlow, Elizabeth Ho, Mia-Carina Mollicone, Valen Shore, Nicole Wyland and Alison Zatta.
Produced by Pacey’s Creek and Kobalt, the show will also have a series of boyband-themed immersive parties, which will take place following selected performances throughout December, hosted by members of the cast.
Talking about the show heading to the Seven Dials Playhouse, Katie Pesskin, Programme Director at Seven Dials Playhouse,said: “As a diehard boyband fan, Chriskirkpatrickmas was at the top of my Edinburgh must-see list and it absolutely did not disappoint! Even in mid-August it was clear that it is the perfect alternative Christmas show – throw a post-show party into the mix and what’s not to love?! So I am thrilled that Alison, Valen and the whole team are joining us for a Boyband Christmas Takeover at Seven Dials Playhouse and that we can share the Chriskirkpatrickmas joy with London this festive season.”
Meanwhile, co-creators of Pacey’s Creek, Valen Shore and Alison Zatta commented: “It’s a dream come true to be bringing some boy band Christmas magic to London right after Edinburgh Fringe. We can’t wait to share our updated twist on holiday classics with a whole new audience.”
