The Extraordinary Tale of Holly Christmas

Commissioned by The Lowry | Colour The Clouds

Despite her name Holly has never had the Christmas she dreams of. Can a magic wish and two very special visitors help her find what she is looking for?
  • Venue: The Aldridge Studio
  • Ages: 3-8

Holly Christmas is clever, fun and fearless; full of energy and ideas, all she wants is for her dad to let some fun into his life and join in her games, but all Dad wants is for Holly to sit down and stay safe.

A magic book, a Christmas wish and two Elfish-ly brilliant Christmas helpers launch Holly on an adventure she’ll never forget, creating everything she thinks Christmas should be and teaching Holly, and her Dad, what a perfect Christmas really looks like. 

Colour The Clouds Theatre Company present the Extraordinary Tale of Holly Christmas, an original festive adventure jam packed with songs, music, puppetry and lots of Christmas magic. This show is suitable for the whole family, especially 3-8 year olds and their grown-ups!'
