Hor­ri­ble Christ­mas

The Guardian - The Guide - - Stage -

Thu to 6 Jan Alexan­dra Palace, N22, Thu to 30 Dec

Af­ter 80 years, the theatre at Alexan­dra Palace – where the world’s first reg­u­lar TV trans­mis­sions were made – opens its doors again with a sea­sonal fam­ily show from the Hor­ri­ble His­to­ries team. A rib­ald romp through Christ­mases past brings Dick­ens, Cromwell, Henry VIII, Santa and Ru­dolph, among oth­ers, to the stage.

A mod­ern, Los An­ge­les­set hor­ror adap­ta­tion of Rumpel­stilt­skin was filmed in 1995, pro­duced by the cre­ators of kids’ car­toon Scooby-Doo.
