Father Christmas Show at the West Yorkshire Playhouse
Date Posted: 17/09/13
Raymond Briggs is one of the most praised picturebook authors working today, famed for work like The Man, The Snowman and, of course, Father Christmas.
It's this last book that is set to come to the stage at Leeds' West Yorkshire Playhouse this festive season.
The production will run from December 6th this year right through to January 11th 2014, and offers a great treat for the kids.
Puppets and songs will help in the staging of the show, which comes recommended for children aged two to six, as well as their families.
Briggs' Father Christmas is no stranger to adaptation, having been made into a charming cartoon in the early 90s.
The book was first published in the early 1970s and follows a unique take on the character as he makes his Christmas Eve trip. Illustrator Briggs penned a sequel, Father Christmas Goes on Holiday, too.
Theatre breaks in Leeds are a great options, as the city is packed with theatrical treats all year round.
