Santa's Little Helper

Young Albert Tuttle is nearly 7 years old, - far too old to believe in Santa!

How does a big fat man wearing bright red pyjamas fit down the chimney, anyway?

But, Albert is in for a big surprise. For as he sleeps on Christmas Eve, a big fat man wearing bright red pyjamas tumbles down his chimney like a roly poly pudding.

It’s Santa, - he’s come for Albert’s help!

This delightful new show comes to life with an irresitable blend of music, puppetry and high energy storytelling.

With lots of laughs, sing-along songs and plenty of opportunities to join in along the way, this is the perfect treat for Christmas.

Oh, and the chance to meet Santa himself!

Little people aged 3-7 will love this heartwarming tale but big people will have lots of fun, too.

This is a funny, festive adventure with a very happy ending.

Guaranteed to have your spirits flying higher than Rudolph!

Wuthering Heights

Emily Jane Brontë’s only novel is widely considered one of the greatest works of fiction ever written.

Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.

With live music, multiple characterisation, humour and inventiveness this story is as enjoyably engaging as should be in the reliable hands of Hotbuckle!

Don't Dribble on the Dragon

From the company that brought you 'How the Koala Learnt to Hug' and 'Santa in Love' we are delighted to welcome the Peoples Theatre Company back to Louth with a spectacular fun-filled musical, directed by Nick Lane.

With high quality sing-along songs, special effects, interaction and jaw dropping magic designed by the legendary Paul Daniels this show is a delight for all the family.

This spectacular musical escapade is the feel-good story of young brothers Jack and Tom, and is all about growing up and the importance of family. It’s a wonderful mix of fun, pathos, instantly singalong songs – and of course, Daniels’ jaw-dropping magic trickery.

Tom is a teething toddler with a cool older brother, a secret dragon… and a dribbling problem that just won’t stop! When Tom’s endless drooling threatens to tear the brothers’ friendship apart can their dragon’s amazing magic help them put it back together again or will it only end up making things worse?

Daniels’ technical brilliance conjures up such amazements as the fire-breathing dragon, lights that appear from thin air, a magical sponge cake and gravity defying mangoes!

Building on the success of previous Comedy Clubs our young Riverhead Producers are delighted to welcome back Steve Bugeja.

Steve’s comedic adventures have been seen on Russell Howard’s Stand up Central (Comedy Central) and heard on BBC Radio 4’s Fresh From The Fringe. Steve spent his summer working at a kids camp in America. Woefully ill-equipped, disastrously naïve and notoriously bad with children- this is the true story of what happened.

Steve is supported by numerous emerging and talented comedians, which will make for a hilarious, entertaining evening that you won’t want to miss!
