The Extraordinary Tale of Holly Christmas | Wed 20 – Sun 24 December & Wed 27 – Sun 31 December

What's On Guide
The Lowry, which presents some of the UK's largest touring work has commissioned Salford based theatre company Colour the Clouds to produce a brand new Christmas show The Extraordinary Tale of Holly Christmas.

Colour the Clouds joined The Lowry’s Associate Artist programme in 2017 after the success of Aleena’s Garden, a sensory production for 0-3 year olds which was Developed With The Lowry.

The Extraordinary Tale of Holly Christmas will tell the story of a little girl who has never had the Christmas she dreams of. The show premieres at the Salford venue Wed 20 - Sun 24 December & Wed 27 - Sun 31 December.  

Holly Christmas is clever, fun and fearless; and her Dad is the complete opposite. A magic book, a Christmas wish and two Elfish-ly brilliant Christmas helpers launch Holly on an adventure she’ll never forget, creating everything she thinks Christmas should be and teaching Holly, and her Dad, what a perfect Christmas really looks like.

Colour the Clouds provide a unique theatrical experience for family audiences, combining accessible new writing with engaging, original music and vibrant physicality. 

Catherine Manford, company director at Colour the Clouds said; “We’re really pleased that The Lowry commissioned us to produce their first ever Christmas show. Although it’s still in the early stages of being made, we already know that families can look forward to going on an incredibly magical adventure with The Extraordinary Tales of Holly Christmas.”

Claire Symonds, programmer and producer at The Lowry said; “Colour the Clouds have worked with The Lowry over the last three years and produced some brilliant family theatre. At the start of the year I invited them to become Associate Artists at The Lowry and trust them to produce a fantastic Christmas family show. I can’t wait to see how The Extraordinary Tales of Holly Christmas develops over the coming months.”
