Little Angel Theatre announces Christmas 2020 season

Christmas might be looking a little different this year, but Little Angel Theatre is excited to reveal their plans for bringing the magic of puppetry into people’s homes this festive season.

Little Angel Theatre’s much-loved adaptation of Tim Hopgood’s early years book WOW! Said the Owl is coming back in a new, digital way, so that families can recreate the experience of live theatre at home. This was due to be a live, socially distanced production at the theatre, but in light of the latest lockdown announcement, Little Angel Theatre had to change tack. The theatre is thrilled to share this interactive digital version of the show, encompassing a performance and a guided activity via Zoom.

In addition, Little Angel Theatre will be releasing two digital shorts and one digital advent calendar for free on their YouTube channel. Count down to Christmas with daily readings of Patrick Nielsen and Robyn Wilson-Owen’s The Christmas Nisse; take a peep inside the North Pole Control Centre on Christmas Eve to find out who the real hero of Christmas is in Mother Christmas; and join in with Baby and Puss-cat’s festive fun in Puss-cat’s First Christmas.

Little Angel Theatre’s Artistic Director, Samantha Lane, said: ‘We know many families will be missing out on their Christmas theatre trips this year, so we’re delighted to be sharing some brilliant puppetry productions, old and new, to make this festive season feel extra special.’
