Most Absurd Xmas Musical In the World Ever!, The
eat your heart our Ionesco! If you want a musical with a message. . . don't consider this one! If you want an absurd alternative to your traditional Xmas Pantomime . . . or hugely aLTeRNaTIVe Summer Show . . . look no further than this! Santa fails to arrive one year in the Bower of Bliss. Why not? a shortage of carrots perhaps? Or is it because the central character is forbidden to play her music and whose parents want to disguise her as a cactus so that no-one can suspect her special gifts??? and where did that Pantomime cow come from?? Never fear it all ends remarkably happily. It is a bundle of laughs and includes a sackload of original songs. Who could possibly miss such a bizarre Xmas entertainment?!? Originally conceived as a Promenade production . . . but would suit a variety of stages & groups.
Script & Lyrics: Mark Wheeller, Lyndsey Adams, Michael Johnston & Stuart White. Music: James Holmes
