Festive Fun at the Rondo Theatre!

Does anything say ‘Christmas’ more than a ghost story? Add a splash of Dickens and you’ve got yourself the perfect spooky festive night out!

The Rondo Theatre in Bath’s picturesque Larkhall has done just that, kicking off their Christmas line up with The Ghost of a Smile – two ghost stories from the master of Christmas literature himself… Charles Dickens. Like The Woman in Black but funnier, you can catch The Ghost of a Smile for one night only on Thursday 1st December.  

Following a sold-out performance last year, Gigglemug Theatre are back in Bath with their hilarious improvised musical, The Beanspillers, featuring two guest stars: Bristol Improv Theatre’s Beth Kerridge, and beloved regular of the Theatre Royal Bath’s annual pantomime, Jon Monie! The Beanspillers will be performing twice on Saturday 3rd December, with Beth Kerridge starring in the 2:30pm matinee, and Jon Monie featuring in the 8pm show.


Finally, the pièce de resistance of the Rondo’s festive offering raises its curtain on Thursday 8th December; the world-famous Natural Theatre Company will perform their riotously funny new family show, Christmas Cracker, for two weeks in the run up to Christmas - celebrating some of the strange and surprising tales and traditions of Christmas in a breathtakingly brilliant and bonkers show! 

The Bean Spillers return to Bath after playing last year to rave reviews, so be sure to book a ticket, and marvel as the talented cast improvise hilarious songs and music right before your eyes!

For those of your who can’t resist that classic stalwart of Christmas theatre, the pantomime, look no further than Bath Drama’s community production of Beauty and the Beast – coming to the Rondo from Thursday 12th – Sunday 15th January.
