Review

Muppits Die Hard (Wardrobe Theatre)

A madcap, zany, original alternative to the Christmas schmaltz.

Mrs Gerrish's Grotto (Brewery Theatre)

There's no Christmas cheer in this rather awful alternative Christmas fare.

Elf (Plymouth Theatre Royal)
By Karen Bussell

Ideal for excited children and jaded parents alike, Elf is packed full of Christmas cheer, razzmatazz and magic.

Swallows And Amazons (Bristol Old Vic)

The Christmas show to beat in the West Country.

What The Dickens? (Drum Plymouth)
By Karen Bussell

Please Sir can I have some more/

The Snow Queen (Nuffield Theatre)
By David Jobson

Better stick to panto as The Snow Queen provides very little for families this Christmas.

Slava's Snowshow (Tour- Bath Theatre Royal)
By Hannah Sweetnam

A show that delights from beginning to end, Slava's Snowshow provides eerily dark and astoundingly beautiful entertainment.

Exit The King (Ustinov Studio)

Exit The King is a fitting end to a terrific year of work for the Ustinov Stdip.

The Muddy Choir (Tour - Salisbury)
By David Jobson

A play for young people that explores poignantly life in the trenches

Mmm Hmmm (Tobacco Factory Theatres)

Mmm Hmmm is a little gem of a show, a paean to the joy of the human voice.
