Two years since the last Christmas show, the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot welcomes visitors for this year’s show ‘The Ballad of Rudy’.

The show will run from December 14 to December 24.

Following the success of their partnership in previous years, Cornerstone is once again teaming up with the Goblin Theatre team to bring the Christmas tale to life.

Councillor Maggie Maggie Filipova-Rivers said: “We’re really excited to bring such a fun and magical tale to the arts centre for everyone to enjoy.

“It’s been two years since the last Christmas show so we will be offering an extra warm welcome back! I’ve booked my ticket and am really looking forward to the show.”

The show will feature live music and original songs.

The Ballad of Rudy follows the story of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, but this version has a twist.

In this story Rudy does not have a red nose; rather it is his talent for exciting new music that sets him apart from all the others, and alongside a magical Jazz Penguin he goes on an adventure that teaches him that life isn’t about following the herd.

This year’s show is directed by Matt Hassall and written by Matt Borgatti, the writer of Cornerstone’s previous Christmas shows, including the highly popular The Adventures of Pinocchio and The Pied Piper.

Cornerstone Art Centre requests residents to wear a mask when visiting the theatre.
