Ten of the best theatre shows for Christmas 2018

The Guardian’s stage editor Chris Wiegand rounds up ten of the best theatre shows for Christmas 2018, including Uchenna Dance’s imaginative new take on the favourite fairy tale, Hansel & Gretel.

Hansel & Gretel Christmas shows: Touring Nov/Dec 2018 in London and Birmingham

To quote from one of their shows, Uchenna Dance hook audiences into a mighty groove and choreographer Vicki Igbokwe promises tasty beats in her version of the gingerbread-house caper. In this modern dance-theatre version for the over-fives – composed by Kweku Aacht and written by Gbolahan Obisesan – the heroes get lost in the city, not the woods. Many festive kids shows are billed as a celebration of the imagination but few will get their young audience waacking and voguing like this.
