WILTSHIRE Creative is going to be entertaining families this Christmas with the return of its sell-out production of Little Robin Redbreast.

It is being staged on the Main Stage of Salisbury Playhouse, in a transformed and Covid-secure auditorium, and has been written by Wiltshire Creative artistic director Gareth Machin and composer Glyn Kerslake.

Little Robin Redbreast is full of song, magic and surprises for all the family.

Gareth said: “I’m really delighted that we’re bringing back this popular, truly magical show for family audiences at Salisbury Playhouse this Christmas. Audiences loved this festive treat when we first staged it in 2017 and I hope that this year, especially, it will bring joy to more people young and old.”

Also at Salisbury Playhouse in December will be productions of Christmas Gothic, three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate on dark winter nights, and the return of Guy Masterson’s one-man retelling of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, back by popular demand.
