December at Monmouth Savoy Theatre

Fantastic Beasts posterIf all good things come in pairs then we have December nailed down at the Savoy. We have two fantastic family films, two brilliant Christmas shows and two great nights of entertainment.

The films are a must. Starting on Friday 2nd December we have STRANGE BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM(12a) which tells of the adventures of writer Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. JK Rowling has written the screenplay to this wonderful fantasy adventure which is a prequel to her most famous film series.

Rogue one posterOver the Christmas period we bring you on national release ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. We are delighted to be able to show the new Star Wars spinoff on its nationwide release from December 16th. Even better we are also mounting two special preview showings on 15th December, so you can see the film earlier than most.

Our two Christmas shows begin with SANTA SAVES CHRISTMAS on December 4th. This is brilliant value for money seasonal fun for under 10s. Not only do they get a fully interactive live show with lots of participation and singing, but then every one of them can meet Santa Claus and receive a gift. Knocks Christmas Grottos into a cocked hat!

Christmas would not be Christmas without a fully fledged, fully formed panto and that’s what we’ve got. From December 30th until January 4th. Twice a day we bring you SLEEPING BEAUTY the story of the princess who pricks her finger and sleeps for 100 years. There are villains, princes, heroes and comics in the usual mix. Essential post Christmas fun. However if you prefer a “relaxed” performance which means that the lights will be up and there will be no bangs or flashes, we have two special evening shows on December 13th and 14th

RAVE ON - A TOUCH OF HOLLY AT CHRISTMAS Our two remaining live entertainment shows are RAVE ON – A TOUCH OF HOLLY AT CHRISTMAS which is a seasonal tribute to one of the greatest singer/songwriters of the 1950s – Buddy Holly. Marc Robinson has been playing Buddy for years and is absolutely top of the tree when it comes to Holly soundalikes. He will be joined by special guest Steve Halliday as Elvis. Its going to sound a lot like Christmas!

We have had a blistering comedy season this autumn with some of the biggest names, and the last of a distinguished line is SEAN WALSH who plays the Savoy on Wednesday 7th with his new show One for the Road. Described as the most brilliant observational comic on the circuit today it is bound to be a glorious comedy finale to the year – and a great night out.
