Exeter Cygnet Theatre - 12 Days of Christmas
Distraction Theatre Company
YET ANOTHER PANTOMIME: OH NO IT ISN’T!!
Enough festive cheer to melt even Scrooge’s cold heart
Distraction Theatre Company will be bringing their sparkling festive spirit to Exeter this Christmas, in the form of their high-energy show, The Twelve Days of Christmas, as an exciting alternative to the traditional pantomime. The show follows Miss Elizabeth Fairfax and her rather unusual Christmas of 1895. Mr Edward Fitzwilliam is in love with Miss Fairfax, but since she is a “most charming and dear creature; no ordinary wooing will do.”
Watch in delight as Miss Fairfax tries to cope with a few ‘extraordinary’ presents and THE MOST RIDICULOUS 12 DAYS OF HER LIFE…
So, how does one turn one of the most popular Christmas songs into a fully-fledged show? The answer is: by a simple mixture of the ingenious and the obvious, all in that sugar-coated wrapping which is the company’s house specialty – flair. With a cast of just 3, the company bound through the 12 days like an excited child opening presents on Christmas day. And there’s a special treat in store for each and every audience; as the company perform an ‘improvised scene’ in each of their shows, every one of their performances is a unique experience. This, along with the frantic quick changes, adds to the increasing havoc and mayhem caused by the ballooning number of bizarre gifts. The result? A sugar-coated wrapping containing absurd humour, music, dance, sparkling repartee with the audience and a
heart-warming Christmas message to melt even Scrooge’s cold heart.
And we promise; not a ‘it’s behind you’ in sight.
