The Christmas Goblin

A musical adventure of irresistible songs, banging Christmas glitter ball costumes and heartfelt festive cheer by acclaimed gig theatre-makers Brigitte Aphrodite & Quiet Boy.

The Christmas Goblin is a musical adventure of irresistible songs, banging Christmas glitter ball costumes and heartfelt festive cheer by acclaimed gig theatre makers Brigitte Aphrodite & Quiet Boy.

11 year old ‘Daphne’ embarks on an other-worldly musical tale when her magical Yaya (Grandma) in Athens tells her of the ancient Greek myth of ‘Kallikantzaroi’ (The Christmas Goblin) causing Daphne to accidentally unleash these fabulously mischievous, grotesque creatures on the streets of a snow covered Canterbury. Goblins are mean, nasty, brussel sprout smelling, untrustworthy thing. Or are they?

Every performance is chilled. Chilled performances offer a more casual theatre-going experience for audiences, with rules on noise being more relaxed. Chilled performances are ideal for those who like a more informal atmosphere when they visit the theatre.
