Who can sleep on Christmas Eve?

PUBLISHED: 16:39 15 December 2010




IT IS Christmas Eve – the most magical night of the year.

Who can sleep when there are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, mountains to be climbed and seas to be sailed?

This winter sees the Bristol Old Vic team up once again with the award-winning Travelling Light Theatre Company and Champloo Dance to bring their enchanting show for small children, Boing! who can sleep on Christmas Eve?, to the Studio.

It is charming story of two brothers who just cannot wait for Santa’s arrival.

A brand new production for Bristol Old Vic’s Studio, the show captures the excitement, anticipation and inevitable sleepiness of Christmas Eve.

Using dance, puppetry, words and music, children will be enthralled by the extraordinary images that are created for them and adults will be whisked away to a time when Christmas was all about magic and mayhem.

The story will be staged at the Bristol venue until January 9.

Tickets, priced £7-13, are available from the box office on 0117 987 7877 .
