“A charming evening’s entertainment... Looks a million dollars... Walsh is a delight in her too-few scenes, tuneful and engaging”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“The Christmas cake of musicals... Morgan Young and designer Tim Goodchild have thrown everything in. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“A ridiculous hoot: silly, exhilarating... A vividly discomfort-inducing and very winning stellar performance by Ben Forster. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Forster... has... mischievous wide-eyed innocence...a show-stopping vocal range and an energy that fizzes like a firework. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“As saccharine as a full box of Quality Street... Thanks to a strong turn from Forster it's not a total turkey. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“An amiable, good-natured seasonal show... Delivers on its promise to make you want to believe in Father Christmas again. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Young has drilled his troops efficiently... Forster is an engaging stage presence... Efficient, slick, even cynical. ”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“Magic, for a steep price... Bound to make a lot of kids very happy even if leaves a lot of parents very broke. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Determinedly good-hearted... Walsh deploys a dry wit and really beautiful, strong musical-theatre voice... Workmanlike. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“It looks lovely – kudos to Galloway... The adult crossover appeal that the film had is all but gone, the songs aren’t much cop. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Forster... bounds through the evening with an anarchic glee... Doesn’t so much invoke the spirit of Christmas as market it. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
