An Evening with Krampus

11th December, 2018 - 22nd December, 2018


The following performance information was provided by the Barbican Theatre.

Barbican Theatre is excited to announce it is partnering with The Wheel to offer an alternative Christmas show and new training opportunities in Plymouth this autumn.

An Evening with Krampus is a cabaret style theatrical experience developed by Barbican Theatre and The Wheel to offer Plymouth ‘a darkly delicious festive treat’! Coming to Barbican Theatre’s intimate stage from 11 – 22 December (8pm plus 3pm on Fridays) it’s for those aged 16 and over.

Barbican Theatre and The Wheel are committed to supporting emerging talent, so naturally An Evening With Krampus features some extraordinary emerging artists all based in or from the Plymouth area. Expect a bit of a spectacle, plenty of entertainment, and certainly a fair amount of mischief. An Evening With Krampus is perfect for those looking for an alternative to the traditional Christmas show.

Director Kevin Johnson says:
“We are really looking forward to getting into the rehearsal room and delving into the Krampus myth. In Central European folklore, Krampus punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. In our production we aim to fuse live music, song, cabaret and comedy to create an indulgent, seductive and joyful alternative Christmas treat for grown ups whether you have been naughty or nice this year!”

Audiences can make a night of it by joining us in the intimate and relaxed B-Bar beforehand for the best Thai food in town and a great selection of drinks, including an extensive cocktail list!

Tickets for An Evening With Krampus are priced at £14 (inclusive of all booking fees) Performances are for ages 16+ and run from 11 – 15 December at 8pm (plus 3pm Friday 14 December) and from 20 – 22 December at 8pm (plus 3pm Friday 21 December).
