Plenty of Christmas Shows for Kids (and the whole family!) at New Wolsey
It's Christmas Time - and that means pantos!
This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!
Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society
It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!
Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!
We're Gonna Make You Wanna Shout!
Please note, the one and only late night special is Friday 21 December at 9pm.
SHOWING FROM THU 29 NOV — SAT 2 FEB
And if that wasn't enough - a special event for the youngsters showing at the New Wolsey Studio!
THE BALLAD OF RUDY
A Jazz Odyssey for your little ones this Christmas!
‘Hey Reindeer, you got Groove’
In this story Rudy doesn’t have a red nose; rather it’s his talent for exciting new music that sets him apart from all the other Reindeer. Together with a magical Jazz Penguin he goes on an adventure that teaches him that life isn’t about following the herd.
Funny, warm and with a big heart, this show features live music, original songs and lots of imagination that is guaranteed to have children mesmerised from start to finish.
Sing the blues with a Polar Bear, jam with the Puffins and beat- box with an Arctic Fox. It all happens at the North Pole Jazz Lounge. It’s gonna be coooool.
