Jack Frost


Christmas 2018 Fidget Theatre will be creating a new show in association with Barnsley Civic Theatre.  Jack Frost uses live music, audience participation, and a community band to playfully engage audiences, spark young imaginations and deliver a frost covered world of Christmas joy.

Holly is a little girl who plays the trumpet. Holly’s Primary school teacher is busily organising the end of year Christmas concert. At rehearsal Holly notices strange things happening. There is someone else here, someone magical!

Performed by three actor/musicians, plus a specially formed community band, the audience take part in gentle playful participation as we follow Holly’s journey and finally join together on stage for a joyous and triumphant Christmas concert ending.

Jack Frost is a contemporary story for a familiar character. The story gently explores themes of loneliness and what it means to be invisible and on the outside looking in. The show is witty and welcoming, engaging family audiences in a playful and relaxed theatre experience. It uses live music to create a celebratory and seasonal atmosphere in which everyone gets to experience the joy of joining in.

See you next Christmas!
