This family Christmas show uses visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to tell the story of Alice, a match seller in Victorian London. We meet her in the morning and follow her throughout her day, as she encounters funny and zany characters on the vibrant city streets.
When Alice is cold, she strikes a match and the stage transforms. We enter the fantastic world of Alice’s imagination, with talking turkeys, dancing rats, and Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s first winter together, along with their chattering Christmas tree. This is a touching and madcap show. The audience will laugh, care and maybe cry a little for the tale of this small fierce girl.
