Having successfully attempted to escape from a locked tank of water, and less successfully managed to vanish an elephant, Yorkshire pudding Mr. Swallow returns this year with a musical retelling of Dickens’ festive classic A Christmas Carol.
Co-starring Mr. Goldsworth (David Elms) and Jonathan (Kieran Hodgson), they are also joined by P&O Ferries favourite, lounge singer Rochelle Kelly (Sarah Hadland). Jangle those jingles, devour those Christingles, it’s time for some Christmas chaos…
‘Nick Mohammed’s most fully realised musical yet… a festive fever dream, I couldn’t stop smiling.’★★★★ Times
Quote from Mr. Swallow: ‘The hugest of thank yous to the Dickens estate for trusting me with this literary classic. I remember studying it at school and never really liking it. But it has been a real privilege getting to take the original text and change all the words, context and overall meaning such that it fits my very specific requirements. I’d also like to point out that this is the longest musical I (and possibly others) have ever written. Fingers crossed it’s not the last.’
