  "Flanders and Swann Revisited" Saturday 28th November 7.30 pm
Actor, singer and pianist Michael Lunts brings you an evening of musical comedy featuring the songs of Flanders and Swann and the poetic wit of Sir John Betjeman.
Familiar and less familiar songs ,from 'The Hippoptamus' to 'A Transport of Delight', from 'The Gnu' to 'Have Some Madeira, M'Dear' are shown to be rooted in that vision of the recent past often called 'Betjeman's Britain'
In a world where Bejeman shares his love of all forms of 'obsolete transport' with Flanders and Swann's evocation of pre-Beeching Britain in 'The Slow Train', wallow, (along with the Hippoptamus !) in a little nostalgia and the more gentle humour exemplified by these arch-observers of the national character.
£9.50/Child £5
  "The Mikado " [ENCORE] ENO Saturday 5th December7.30 pm
Almost 30 years on from its premiere, Jonathan Miller's dazzlingly inventive staging of The Mikado returns to the London Coliseum for what has become for many the definitive production of this much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera.
Set in an ever-so English 1930s seaside hotel, Miller's Marx Brothers-inspired song-and-dance Mikado is a popular hit with audiences of all ages
The combination of Gilbert's virtuosic wit, Sullivan's memorable melodies and Miller's hilarious antics is irresistible.
  "The Lady of the Camellias" Bolshoi Ballet Sunday 6th December 3.00 pm
The ballet takes place during an auction. The story evolves as a series of memories recalled from various points of view — Armand’s, his Father’s, and Marguerite’s.
Falling madly in love with 'The Lady Of The Camellias', a beautiful Parisian courtesan, Armand Duval determines to do whatever it takes to win her heart.
  Marguerite suffers from tuberculosis, and wears a white camellia when she is well enough to be available to her lovers. While Armand is able to convince her to live with him in the countryside, his father is shocked by the scandal and attempts to end the relationship.
  "Scrooge - The Musical !" 7 - 9, 15 - 17 December 7.30 pm

Spotlight Theatre brings you an in-house production of Scrooge: The Musical, a 1992 stage musical with book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

The original production starred Anthony Newley as Scrooge, and the 2005 West End production at the London Palladium saw Tommy Steele in the title role
Like the film, the musical closely follows the plot of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, in which the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future

  "Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci " Covent Garden Thursday 10th December7.15 pm
Betrayal, lust, love, jealousy and murder abound in The Royal Opera’s pairing of heart- rending classics Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci
Eva-Maria Westbroek and Aleksandrs Antonenko lead the world-class cast bringing the productions to life. Staged in a village in Southern Italy in the late 20th century where poverty and hypocrisy prevail, strong passions lurk in the dark.
Cavalleria Rusticana is a tragedy of ancient codes and the illicit love of the peasant Turiddu for the married Lola. In a small village where woman are objectified and men fight for their pride, the lovers’ betrayal ends in the ultimate duel.
Pagliacci is the story of an acting troupe; the hunchback clown Tonio, the murderous Canio and his adulterous wife Nedda. Taking to the stage in the local community hall, their performance quickly unravels as the imaginary and reality merge together and Canio descends into a jealous rage murdering Nedda in front of the audience. The story is based on a real life crime the composer witnessed as a child.
  "Mother Goose " December 12,13,18,19,20/January 2,3,8,9,10

The story of Mother Goose is possibly the oldest to be turned into a pantomime. It dates back to an ancient Greek legend about a goose that laid golden eggs. It is also one of the earliest pantomimes seen in Great Britain, nearly two hundred years ago.

The pantomime has a strong moral- Beauty & Wealth cannot bring you happiness.
Our story tells of how Mother Goose, played by (Mike Hammond) is about to be thrown out of her cottage because she cannot pay the Baron and his sidekicks Snitch and Snatch the rent. Along comes Candy the goose. Mother Goose loves her as a friend and doesn’t know the good fairy has sent her to help Mother Goose. Candy lays golden eggs, and Mother Goose is rich. Along comes the Mistress Valdewart, she has a bet with the Fairy. She claims there is no-one on earth who is happy with what they have got- no one is content. They want more. Fairy Sunlight disagrees, and uses Mother Goose as an example of goodness.
Mistress Valdewart tempts Mother Goose with the one thing she doesn’t have- youth and beauty. She persuades her to give her Candy in exchange for a visit to the “Pool of Beauty”. She gives her Candy, and enters the pool, emerging as (she thinks) a beautiful woman.
 All her friends don’t like her now including her sons Billy and Colin- they want their old Mum back. Too late she realises that beauty is NOT everything, and that she must get Candy back. After a lot of trouble (usually going to “Goose Court” to see the King and Queen in Gooseland to plead for Candy) she gets her back, and all ends happily ever after.
£9.00/Under 16 £5 
  "Jane Eyre " [ENCORE] National Theatre Sunday 13th December 7.00 pm
Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms
  From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre’s spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.
  "The Nutcracker " [ENCORE] Bolshoi Ballet Monday 14th December 7.0 pm
 The Nutcracker and the Mouse King is a story written in 1816, by E. T. A. Hoffmann in which young Marie Stahlbaum's favorite Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls.
  "The Nutcracker " [ENCORE] Covent Garden Wednesday 23rd 7.15 pm/ Sunday 27th 2.30 pm Dec.
In Peter Wright's classic production, the stage sparkles with theatrical magic – a Christmas tree grows before our eyes, toy soldiers come to life to fight the villainous Mouse King and Clara is taken to the Kingdom of Sweets on a golden sleigh.
Tchaikovsky's score contains some of the best-known melodies in ballet, from the flurrying sounds of the Waltz of the Snowflakes to the dream-like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs draw upon 19th-century images of Christmas, making this a magical production for the festive season.
  "Farmer Scrooge's Christmas Carol" Wednesday December 30th 2.30 pm

Enjoy a family treat this Christmas with Badapple's latest production, written by Kate Bramley and presented by her itinerant band of actors.

Have a good chuckle while the blustering, skin-flint 1950's farmer Ebeneezer Scrooge gets his comeuppance as Mrs Cratchitt helps him see the error of his penny pinching ways.
Full of local stories and carols, puppets and mayhem, and original songs by Jez Lowe, plus a whacking great dose of seasonal bon-homie, this is a winter warmer to put a smile on everyone's face this Christmas.
£9.50/Under 16 £5
