The Nutcrackera family orientated production
Featuring an impressive cast and
accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will burst onto the stage again with a new and exciting performance of The Nutcracker, and will bring with them all the colour, enthusiasm and vibrancy that one would expect.

This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey during the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to people of any age to the magic that is classical ballet, as you become a part of the magic as it unfolds.

Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann's "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King", it tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic begins...

Having crept downstairs at midnight to play with her new Nutcracker doll, Marie is swept up in the ultimate Christmas fantasy adventure when it comes magically to life and, with the aid of a box full of toy soldiers under the Christmas tree, defeats the army of the evil Mouse King who has invaded her house. Lying mortally wounded after the battle, the Nutcracker is transformed into a handsome Prince who whisks Marie away through a Winter Wonderland to the Land of Snow and then on to the Land of Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy entertains them like royalty with festive dances in recognition of the Prince’s heroic defeat of the Mouse King.

Featuring a timeless score from the incredible composer Pyotr. I. Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker showcases all the best-loved elements that everyone listens to on radio or at home, such as The Spanish Dance, The Arabian Dance, The Russian Dance, The Chinese Dance, The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House have ensured that this classical ballet remains just as spell-binding today as it was when it was first performed 120 years ago.

It is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see The Nutcracker as never before with an established and long standing Russian theatre that continues to grow on the international stage and win awards in the field of opera and ballet, and is an unmissable treat for the whole family.

Award winning Middle Ground Theatre Company bring you their highly acclaimed production of THE HOLLY AND THE IVY.

Set in a Norfolk vicarage on Christmas Eve 1947, the vicar’s family gather for the festive season. Peace and goodwill radiates from the warm-hearted elderly vicar, cared for by his young daughter.

But with the arrival of two aunts and an errant daughter, the emotional veneer is skilfully peeled away.  As skeletons tumble from the closet, simmering tensions, incredible revelations, and a good dose of humour make this an absorbing and uplifting drama for the whole family.

This wonderful festive production has received the Theatre Critic’s Choice in both The Guardian and The Times, and stars Stuart McGugan (It Ain’t Half Hot Mum/Tutti Fruitti), Tom Roberts (Emmerdale/Two Point Four Children), Dean Smith (Waterloo Road) and Hildegard Neil (Antony & Cleopatra).  Also starring Alan Leith, Sally Sanders and Rachel Waters.

A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, The Wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own. Can the seven dwarfs save Snow White from the Wicked Queen’s evil plans? Let’s put it this way, red apples don’t get a particularly good reputation in this enchanting tale!

Leading the cast as The Wicked Queen is Coronation Street’s TUPELE DORGU, Preston born Tupele trained in drama and musical theatre at the London Studio Centre. She made her West End debut in Mamma Mia! although she is probably best known for playing Kelly Crabtree (also known as Legs) in Coronation Street for five years. Tupele’s other TV credits include: MI High (CBBC), Natalie Vance in Merseybeat, and Keely James in Waterloo Road. Her other theatre credits include: Teechers (UK Tour) Educating Rita (Lichfield Garrick), and Chicago (No1 Tour).

From Channel 5’s Milkshake!, the hugely talented OLIVIA BIRCHENOUGH will be play a glittering Snow White. Olivia trained at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and with the National Youth Theatre. She will resume touring with the nationwide theatre show Milkshake! Party Party! after Christmas.

Director CHRIS PIZZEY will also plays Muddles. With extensive theatre credits, Chris will be recognisable to television audiences as Mr Stephen in The Basil Brush Show, Trevor in The Legend of Dick and Dom and Sarah Jane’s father in The Sarah Jane Adventures. He has been a long-time member of the UK Productions panto company and this will be his second time directing Snow White.

Panto dame extraordinaire, STEPHEN DAVID, plays the hilarious Nursie, whilst a cast of seven dwarfs will create more madness and mayhem as they try to keep Snow White safe from the evil clutches of The Wicked Queen.

Musical Director STEVE ALLAN JONES and Choreographer and Assistant Director ANDREW MARGERISON return for the 5th year running for what has become one of the most successful pantos in the Liverpool City Region.

With a mix of well known songs, cheeky comedy, great casts, stunning sets, beautiful costumes, outstanding quality and value for money, it’s become an unmissable festive treat for families across the region.

He has performed for some of the world’s greatest figures including, HM The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II who requested a private audience with Russell at The Vatican, former US President Bill Clinton, The Emperor of Japan, European Prime Ministers, Middle Eastern Sultans and the King of Malaysia. The list is endless. Russell’s collaborations include Pavarotti, Lionel Richie, Michael Bolton, Cliff Richard, Lulu, Sarah Brightman, Meatloaf, Mel B, Alexandra Burke, Ashanti and Cleopatra to name but a few.

Tony Denton Promotions presents G4

2004 X factor finalists and multi-platinum selling vocal quartet G4 are excited to announce that, due to unprecedented demand, they have confirmed a schedule for a multi-date UK tour to celebrate their 10th Anniversary. The Reunion Tour will take two halves, the first in April, the second in the autumn.

G4 set an exciting trend by bringing classical music to British reality TV screens for the first time in 2004 with their performance of Nessun Dorma. However, it was their cover of Bohemian Rhapsody that became their signature tune, storming the charts in 2005. Their eponymous debut album went straight to No.1, selling more than 245,000 in the first week, making it the fastest-selling album of the year . In 2007, after three albums, over two million album sales and five sell-out tours with performances in many of the UK's iconic venues, they decided to disband to follow individual interests.

The Reunion Tour has been inspired by the overwhelming response to G4’s 10 Year Reunion concert at London’s Barbican Centre on November 17th. The band have been forced to reconsider the “One Night Only” aspect of the show, and bring their music back to audiences around the country.

Frontman Jonathan Ansell says, "It’s incredibly exciting to be going back on the road with the boys for the first time in a number of years. You can expect the classic G4 treatment: lots of classic songs given the traditional G4 twist, and there’ll definitely be a surprise or two along the way!".

VIP Tickets include a front row seat and a meet and greet with the group.
