Classic stories, spectacular adventures and lots of fun are the hallmarks of a New Vic Christmas show, and this year will be no exception! Bringing together the same creative team who brought to life our adaptations of The Borrowers, Treasure Island and the UK Theatre Award-winning The Snow Queen, this year we bring to life another classic adventure story in our stunning trademark style!
Prepare for a tale full of heart, filled with imaginative storytelling, live music, humour, puppetry and festive magic as we stage a brand new adaptation of The Prince and The Pauper.
Join us and be enchanted by this story of a chance meeting between two people, which might just change their lives….and the lives of everyone around them.
