Theatre Night - The Little Matchgirl
Horton and Little Sodbury Village Hall
A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's traditional tale.
London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets.
In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the cold the flames blaze to life and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we enter the tumultuous world of her imagination, meeting talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.
In this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show, The Last Baguette use visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale. Written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award.
