Theatre The Sherling Studio


Festive fun for everyone ages 3–10 and their families

Jessie’s dad has got her a lovely little present. It’s all wrapped up, and tied with a beautiful bow. She can’t wait to open it, but she isn’t allowed to until Christmas day.

Jessie shakes it and sniffs it and tries to sneak a peek, but Dad puts it just out of her reach and keeps a close eye on it. To keep her amused, he has laid a secret advent trail for her to follow. Jessie discovers a fun-filled journey filled with magical surprises that capture her imagination.

With gorgeous original live music, some gentle audience participation, and maybe a Brussel sprout or two, a charming Christmas treat.
