Three towering talents play a cast of thousands in this new comedy of Biblical proportions by the writer of the Olivier Award-winning West End hit The 39 Steps.

A travelling theatre troupe of two actors and an opera singer arrive by camel in the ancient town of Sheffield to masterfully enact the greatest story ever told.

Join the absurdly talented Maurice Rose (Hugh Dennis), the alarmingly unpredictable Ronald Bream RAC (John Marquez), and the distinguished diva Mrs Doreen Small (Lesley Garrett), in a hilarious Christmas comedy that conjures up the sublime, the ridiculous and the truly angelic.

The Messiah promises to be the funniest and most magical Nativity you will ever see. Directly prior to West End.

Please note: Lesley Garrett will not be appearing in the performance on Thursday 8 November.

Running time: TBC
