The festive production at Arts Centre Washington is set to melt families’ hearts in the run up to the big day.

Presented by Fidget Theatre in association with LittleMighty, the story follows the tale of a little girl called Holly who befriends the lonely winter sprite, Jack Frost.

Audiences will be able to follow Holly’s adventure into the ice-covered fantastical world of the playful, though lonely, Jack, and watch as together they make sure no one is left out this Christmas.
