A drive in ‘car park panto’ has been announced which will tour the UK this Christmas.
Car Park Party have teamed up with the Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories to present Horrible Christmas.
A teaser for the show reads: “When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas?
“From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on a hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season!”
The show will visit Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Chelmsford, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Northampton, Nottingham, Plymouth, Newbury, Reading, Sheffield and Southampton.
There are limited tickets for each show priced at £45 per sleigh car (£2.50 booking fee applies). Tickets & T&C’s are available at carparkparty.com.
Horrible Histories Actor/Manager Neal Foster (Birmingham Stage Company) said: “We were thrilled to be invited to take part in the run of Car Park Party events around the country and were overwhelmed by the response of the audience, who were clearly delighted and relieved to see actors live on stage again.”
Neal Foster continued; “We can’t wait to be back on stage in cities and towns that will be crying out for a Christmas show to entertain their families. As you’d expect from Horrible Histories, it’s not a traditional pantomime, but a journey through the story of Christmas in the company of the season’s most fabulous characters.
“It’s the perfect story for families this winter, as one young boy battles to save Christmas for the world, in this hilarious, joyous and moving celebration.”
