Santa Is Coming To Halifax's Victoria Theatre !

This December, the Victoria Theatre, Halifax will be home to Santa’s Dizzy Day - a fun-packed festive show for pre-school children which includes a meet and greet with Santa and a Christmas gift for all children! The show is written and produced by the same team who were behind the hugely popular Santa’s Sparkly Surprise, Santa’s Rusty Robot, Santa’s Polka Dot Pirate and Santa’s Mixed-up Martian
.
The Santa shows have become a bit of a Christmas tradition at The Victoria Theatre over the last few years and Steve Boden, Managing Director of Imagine Theatre who produces the show explains why:

“We are delighted to be presenting the sixth in the series of ‘Santa’ shows this Christmas. Since we began back in 2014 we have had fabulous feedback from families who have taken their children to see the shows. These productions are an ideal introduction to theatre for those children who are a little bit too young for the magic of panto. They are around 35 minutes long which is much more suitable to a young audience and we are combining a Christmas show with a visit to Santa at a fabulous price. Although they are ideal for young children, in my experience the adults do seem to enjoy them just as much”.

Iain Lauchlan, the writer of the show adds:

“I think it is really important for children to be introduced to theatre at a young age, and even more important that they have a wonderful experience. Really young children cannot be expected to sit still and quiet to watch a show – that is why Santa’s Dizzy Day is designed to get them involved in what is happening on-stage. We encourage them to shout out and join in with the action and get involved with interactive songs. Not only that, they get to meet Santa and receive their first Christmas present of the year – what could be better at that age!”.

Santa’s Dizzy Day will be at the Victoria Theatre from Thursday 5 December – Sunday 8 December.

Tickets for this show are available for £12.50 for children and £9.50 for adults.
