This Christmas, Greenwich Theatre will reopen with Russ Tunney’s thrilling festive adaptation of Joan Aiken‘s classic children’s novel, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, directed by Artistic Director James Haddrell and featuring magical musical compositions by David Haller.
Running from Friday 18th December 2020 to Sunday 10th January 2021, this fun-filled, socially distanced adventure will be accompanied by an online and interactive experience, Sir Willoughby’s Challenge, for those unable to attend the live performance.
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase tells the story of two brave and determined girls as they encounter unforgettable characters, take on ferocious wolves and battle through snowy wastelands. Bonnie, Sylvia, and their friend Simon the Goose-boy soon realise that the wolves roaming the forests outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside.
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase will star Greenwich’s favourite pantomime villain Anthony Spargo as Miss Slighcarp, alongside Alice De-Warrenne, Cassandra Hercules, Akshay Khanna, Serin Ibrahim and Reice Weathers.
Alongside the live performance, Greenwich are also offering audience members the opportunity to join the cast in an online challenge to help Bonnie and Sylvia on an epic venture through their wintry world.
Sir Willoughby’s Challenge is a brand new theatrical experience for brave and intrepid adventurers aged 6 to 12.
