Get ready to save Christmas

Wed 2 Mar 2016

Join Freddie and his teddy Mr Roo at the Guildhall Theatre in this year’s festive adventure to save Christmas from the most dastardly Captain Sprout.

Babbling Vagabonds will be returning for a fourth year to tell the story of Captain Sprout and the Christmas Pirates.

It’s the night before Christmas and Freddie and Mr Roo are settling down for bed, having set a trap to catch Father Christmas. Little do they know that they will be catching something very different and before long be on an adventure across the high seas to save Christmas for the people of Derby. Songs, lighting effects and shadow puppets will make this a fantastic family show.

Captain Sprout is a complete bad egg, a hater of anyone having fun and especially Christmas. His plan is to take on the world and pillage everything Christmassy, starting with the stockings and mince pies and even the tinsel. The Grinch and Scrooge are nothing, when pirates decide that Christmas is not happening there is no stopping them and Captain Sprout is the scariest, deadliest and badi-est pirate that has ever sailed the Derby seas.

Will Captain Sprout succeed or will Christmas be saved? Who will be made to walk the plank? And what will happen to Mr Roo? Find out this December and get ready to batten down the hatches as nothing is safe from this band of naughty pirates.

The show will run from Thursday 8 to Wednesday 28 December, with tickets now on sale priced £11 – £13, with concessions, family tickets, school and group rates available.
