Sheffield Theatres will be filled with festive fun this Christmas with three seasonal shows set to delight audience of all ages.

Sheffield is dreaming of a White Christmas in the Crucible with Irving Berlin’s perfect feel-good musical for all the family, running from Saturday 9 December – Saturday 13 January.

Former soldiers turned successful showbiz duo Bob and Phil are on the lookout for a new act. On meeting singing sisters Betty and Judy, they are immediately smitten. When the four wind up performing a gig together at a remote Vermont ski resort, they discover that the hotel is owned by the boys’ old army commander. But the place is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to an unseasonal lack of snow. Can the talented foursome transform the lodge’s fortunes in time for Christmas? And will the snow start to fall?

Featuring the talent of George Blagden as Bob, Ewen Cummins as Waverley, Sandra Marvin as Martha, Grace Mouat as Betty, Natasha Mould as Judy and Stuart Neal as Phil, plus a fantastic wider cast and ensemble.

Across the square in the Lyceum, there’s feel-good fun and laughs aplenty: 2023’s pantomime is Beauty and the Beast. Starring Blue’s Duncan James, CBeebies‘ Jennie Dale and legendary Dame Damian Williams and running from Friday 8 December – Sunday 7 January.

This fairy-tale extravaganza promises to be full of hilarious comedy, lavish sets, fantastic music, beautiful costumes, magic and mayhem. Once again, the show will be written and directed by Paul Hendy (Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella) and produced by Evolution, the same team behind last year’s fabulous panto, Jack and the Beanstalk.

For little ones, journey to A Town Called Christmas, in the Playhouse from Friday 15 – Saturday 30 December. Clementine dreams of a gingerbread village where chocolate coins are currency, and laughter hangs like baubles in the air! The happiest place on Earth. Or at least it used to be… Together with a cantankerous caretaker and a glitching robot, can you help her save the day, and the town called Christmas? A brand-new show for adventurers aged 3+ and their grown-ups. Brought to the stage by Gala Durham and Wrongsemble.

All Christmas productions are on sale now. Tickets can be booked through the Box Office in person, over the phone on 0114 249 6000 or at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
