The Christmas season is officially underway at The Turbine. From Sunday 8 December – Sunday 22 December the Battersea Power Station based theatre launches their Christmas At The Turbine. Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills, has curated a series of special one-off events with some of the West End’s most talented stars.
These unique events include intimate performances, Q&As and a workshop with: Luke Bayer (Everyone’s Talking About Jamie), Natalie Paris (Six), Samantha Barks (Les Misérables/Pretty Woman), Jodie Steele (Heathers/Rock Of Ages), Sophie Issacs (Heathers/Cruel Intensions), T’Shan Williams (Heathers/The Life), Louise Dearman (Side Show/Wicked), Laura Pitt-Pulford (Side Show/Falsettos) and Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Chris Superstar/Memphis).
Other events include a night with Rumour Mill (the revue and cabaret show), Matthew Shaw (one of the UK’s most celebrated singing teachers), and Carnaval del Barrio (the stars of the London production of In The Heights re-uniting for a one off concert).
Paul Taylor-Mills said, “I’m over the moon that we are marking our first Christmas at the Turbine with a series of special one off events. These events will compliment our main Christmas offering which is the family favourite, The Cat in the Hat. I’m going to be joined by some of the most incredible artists who have informed my career to date and to have them with us at The Turbine for our first Christmas is a real honour.
“We’ve got intimate cabarets with some of the leading names in musical theatre, special one off reunions and even a bit of naughty burlesque! I like to think of it as our very own advent calendar of delights! A bit of something for everyone. Come and have mince pies and mulled wine with us all.”
Christmas At The Turbine will run in conjunction with the theatre’s first family show, Dr Seuss’s much-loved classic, The Cat In The Hat. The production is adapted for the stage by Katie Mitchell, directed by Lillie Collier, and runs from 11 December – 11 January 2020.
