It may seem odd to be thinking about Christmas just as the sun seems to have finally arrived for summer – but the Rose Theatre is already gearing up for its 2014 Christmas show.

The High Street venue set a high bar with last year’s runaway success the Snow Gorilla, but theatre bosses are hoping to eclipse even that with the next production.

Details are being kept firmly under wraps until Monday, May 19, when the announcement will be made online at at 6pm.

Ciaran McConville, The Rose’s director of learning and participation said: “This promises to be theatre at its most involving and exhilarating.”

Check just after 6pm on Monday, May 19, to find out who – or what – is coming to the Rose Theatre this Christmas.
