The nights are drawing in, Halloween and bonfires are behind us – it’s time to look forward to the festive season!
If you’re looking for something seasonal to enjoy with your little ones this year, we aim to please young and old with our family Christmas concerts. You can expect the usual musical theatre favourites from The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and Elf the Musical as well as much-loved songs from Christmas films like Home Alone, The Snowman, White Christmas and The Polar Express. All ages are welcome, but we reckon that babies and children 0 – 8 will get the most out of the experience (and, of course, their grown ups!).
No less than eight professional singers will be performing across December with a huge breadth of experience in the West End, national and international tours in shows such as School of Rock, Cats, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Legally Blonde, Sweeney Todd, Avenue Q, Oliver, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and many more.
There’ll be plenty of audience interaction with bubbles, flying babies, jingly bells and maybe even some chimney sweeping ready for Santa’s visit! There’ll be actions to join in with on ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ – look out for a video on our Facebook page explaining how they work!
Last year the audience sported some fantastic Christmas outfits, including teeny-tiny elves and gorgeous mini Santas. Fancy dress is always welcome at Baby Broadway – we love to encourage freedom of expression in little ones and our performers’ Christmas jumpers will be getting an outing too!
The 2016 Christmas audiences were also a generous lot, raising £500 for Save the Children through a collection after the concerts. We always add a donation from ticket sales to the total and this year we will proudly be raising money for Unicef.
We can’t wait to bring our Christmas concerts to a venue near you for a third year running – you can book now to secure a spot, and we hope to see you there!
