Peter and the Wolf (and other stories)

Children’s Classic Concerts’ Essential Orchestra is back with a fantastical musical adventure featuring Prokofiev’s iconic fairytale Peter and the Wolf.  Brought to life on stage by our very own musical characters, they will transport you from Peter’s  forest to Romeo and Juliet’s castle stopping off for a spin around Sleeping Beauty’s ballroom. And we’ll need your help in the Wizard’s dungeon conjuring up some magic to help the Sorcerer’s Apprentice get those brooms under control!

Children’s Classic Concerts has a serious commitment to making music fun.  Reaching more than 13,000 children and their families each year, our concerts range from symphony orchestra concerts to small chamber concerts and cover classical, orchestral, folk and jazz music. We aim to create interactive, innovative and inspirational experiences that can ignite a passion for culture in both the young and the old.  Our performances will have every one up and dancing, singing and, most importantly, having fun!

WHAT’S ON DECEMBER 2019 – Elf: The Christmas Spectacular at the SSE Hydro

Elf, the Broadway musical based on the hit Will Ferrell movie, is supersized into a huge Christmas spectacular this December.  It’s the heart-warming story of how human Buddy, raised by Santa’s elves at the North Pole, travels to New York to find his real father, falls in love and brings Christmas happiness to everyone.

Starring award-winning Coronation Street actress and singer Kym Marsh as Buddy the Elf’s girlfriend, Jovie, and Shaun Williamson (Barry Evans In EastEnders, Extras) as Buddy’s dad Walter Hobbs.  Buddy the Elf will be played by the hilarious comedy actor Tam Ryan, ensuring lots of laughs.  The cast also features Father Christmas, and a dozen Cirque stars, in a cast of 100.

This unique production has three stages, so you are always close to the action, with a giant 30 foot-tall Christmas tree that the audience get to decorate, a flying sleigh, and high octane stunts.  In case you miss anything, there are enormous TV screens relaying the action that also show amazing CGI scenery.

Don’t be a cotton-headed ninny muggins – make sure you get your family tickets now!
