Little Robin Redbreast has previously entertained people in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse, but this December it will be performed on the Main Stage, in a transformed and Covid-secure auditorium.

The production focusses on little Robin who’s excitedly awaiting Christmas. To help him count down the days, Mummy and Daddy have given him an advent calendar. Behind every window is a picture and every picture tells a story. Robin links the pictures as he makes his magical, musical journey towards Christmas Day, encountering a street-wise squirrel, an attention-seeking mouse, a family of reindeer and a curious cat along the way.

Written by Wiltshire Creative Artistic Director Gareth Machin and composer Glyn Kerslake, Little Robin Redbreast is full of song, magic, laughter and surprises for all the family.

Gareth said: “I’m really delighted we’re bringing back this popular, truly magical show for family audiences at Salisbury Playhouse this Christmas. Audiences loved this festive treat when we first staged it in 2017, and I hope this year, especially, it will bring joy to more people young and old.”

This is “a spell-binding treat,” Musical Theatre Review wrote. Families can make their visit to the theatre extra special by ordering refreshments with tickets. Enjoy a range of hot, cold and alcoholic drinks, even a glass of mulled wine with a mince pie or a tub of Marshfield ice cream.

The Festive Treat Box for children includes a festive apple and berry fruit shoot, ready salted hula hoops, two small chocolates and a candy cane.
Little Robin Redbreast, December 1 to December 27.
