Concerts, panto and a Christmas classic will be performed at the Lyric Hammersmith during the festive season.
The popular theatre in King Street has published its latest programme, which promises yule-tide entertainment galore.
This year’s much anticipated pantomime is Jack and the Beanstalk featuring award-winning comedian, composer and BBC Proms presenter Vikki Stone.
It will run from November 18 to January 6 and feature plenty of magic beans, a lovable cow, an enormous beanstalk, a gigantic giant and a massive adventure, promising to be the theatre’s biggest panto ever.
Ms Stone returns to the Lyric for the second pantomime running to play the role of Fleshcreep, joining Cherrelle Skeete who will play the Fairy Godmother, and who is currently rehearsing at the Lyric in the forthcoming production of The Seagull.
Other cast members include Kayla Meikle who will play Daisy the Cow and Faith Omole who will play Jack.
Once again the ensemble is built up of six young performers, as part of the Lyric Hammersmith’s commitment to nurturing young talent.
Also playing at the theatre this Christmas is Joe Stilgoe’s Christmas at the Lyric.
He will perform three concerts on December 4, 11 and 18.
He will be joined by his big band for the first concert playing an inimitable take in seasonal favourites plus his own incredible songs and classic big band standards.
Joe Stilgoes’s Christmas Party on December 11 is a variety night reminiscent of the good old days of entertainment, as Joe and his seven-piece band welcome guests from stage, screen and music to reinterpret the Christmas songbook, play some games and indulge in a spot of Dickens.
The final concert on December 18 is Joe Stilgoe’s White Christmas, which will feature special guests giving their unique spin on festive classics.
And Christmas at the Lyric wouldn’t be the same without Raymond Brigg’s Father Christmas, which returns for another year from November 22 to Christmas Eve (December 24).
