Christmas.Time.

Tuesday, 19th December 2017

Christmas.Time. is set in a small prison cell, Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn’t they? It’s Christmas Day and they’re serving time at Her Majesty’s pleasure. But why shouldn’t they be having a Merry Christmas in spite of their incarceration? What’s stopping them from creating Christmas around them? Absolutely nothing! A Christmas cabaret ensues, and they set off on their festival of carols, Claus, Christ and custody.
Join them on a fantastical adventure through Dickens, pantomime, musical, Christmas dinner and Christmas films! See as they build a wonderfully Merry Christmas around them with songs, snowmen and lots of laughs in this truly festive show that puts the ‘cell’ firmly back in ‘celebration’.
Written by Daniel Richards and Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Simon Harvey (o-region, Kneehigh) Christmas. Time. is a musical comedy for all the family and a fun, festive and fantastically funny Christmas offering from Near-ta Theatre!
Please note: This event is suitable for age 10+

Swan Lake: Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet

Friday, 19th January 2018 until Saturday, 20th January 2018

 A tragic tale of love and betrayal
Under the direction of Marina Medvetskaya, Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet has won plaudits across Russia, Scandinavia, the United States and now, the UK. This acclaimed company returns to Hall for Cornwall after delighting audiences on previous visits.  Combining classical training and technique with the best-loved Russian ballets, Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet’s performances have an air of magic, complemented by a full orchestra and outstanding soloists who will take your breath away.
Swan Lake is Tchaikovsky's masterpiece, a tragic tale of love and betrayal with an instantly recognisable score. This is the epic story of Prince Siegfried and his true love Odette, who, tricked by the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart and his daughter Odile, would rather die together than live apart.
