CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
We follow the story of Old Mother Hubbard, her dog, and her Nursery-rhyme children. The action takes place on Christmas Eve when Mother Hubbard, whose cupboard is bare, and her children are turned out of their house by a bailiff. They make their way to a forest where they encounter a magician on his way to a circus. By a fortunate mistake, the magician casts a spell which enlarges the bailiff's lost boot to a size which is big enough for Mother Hubbard to take temporary residence in. But her troubles are far from over and they all undergo many adventures - not least with a sinister cat, before all turns out well and they are able to take part in a Grand Circus.
