Bristol Old Vic has today announced full casting for its forthcoming Christmas show, Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales, a co-production with Shakespeare’s Globe.
Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the production will run at the Bristol Old Vic from 30 November, 2017, to 14 January, 2018, prior to a UK tour.
Inspired by Andersen’s spellbinding tale, the show also weaves The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Thumbelina with the Little Matchgirl’s devastating story.
The cast includes: Niall Ashdown, Edie Edmundson, Kezrena James, Guy Hughes, Karl Queensborough, Katy Owen and Elizabeth Westcott. The company will be completed by musicians Dave Johnsy, Alex Heane and Jon Gingell.
