Patrick Barlow, writer of the Olivier winning West End smash hit 39 Steps, directs a staggering Nativity play, The Messiah, starring Hugh Dennis, Lesley Garrett, and John Marquez 3 stars of UK stage and screen.

A weary travelling theatre troupe comprised of two actors and an opera singer arrive by camel to the ancient city of London prepared to tell the greatest story ever. A cast of three embody a multitude of the world’s most well-known characters. Mary and Joseph, God and the archangel Gabriel, Herod and the ox come to the stage. This ridiculous and heavenly comedy is the perfect way to celebrate the Christmas season!

Tracey Denman 7th January

Absolutely fantastic, How all 3 players managed not to corpse was amazing. It also led the audience through many emotions, with music perfectly sung without instruments. The audience participation was fun. It was like Cannon and Ball meets opera.

Carolyn Clements 6th January

Samantha Gilbank 2nd January

Great performance by all 3 stars, well worth a watch, plenty of laugh out loud moments!

Barry Cross1st January

Mildly funny in place, the Messiah resembles a panto. However, worth going to see for the silliness and also to hear Lesley Garrett sing.

Di Shaw31st December

Funny, clever, silly, touching, dramatic, operatic, & with audience participation - thoroughly enjoyed it.
