Check Out What’s On At The Capitol This Christmas!
The Capitol’s own production of PETER PAN starring Anthony Sahota. Nicola Hume, Nicholas Collier,
Rebecca Lafferty, Hywel Dowsell, James Fletcher and Freddie Hill opens on Friday 13th December 2019 and runs until Sunday 5th January 2020. The immortal tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up is given a brand new pantomime treatment with an injection of pop and musical theatre songs, colourful sets and costumes, corny and clever gags and thoroughly family friendly entertainment.
THE HO HO HO CHRISTMAS SHOW, a delightful Christmas show for children age 3+ is back by popular demand from Saturday 7th – Tuesday 24th December in Park Barn opposite The Capitol. Get into the festive spirit as you head to Santa’s Workshop to meet Steve the Elf. He is busy preparing everything for Santa in time for Christmas Eve. There are presents to wrap and reindeer to feed, so he needs your help to get it all done before the big night. At last Santa returns to the workshop to see all the good work and his faithful elf learns the true meaning of Christmas.
A brand new adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, which is a Horsham District Year of Culture Event, opens in The Capitol Studio on Friday 13th December and runs until Tuesday 24th December. Acclaimed character actors Jack Lane (Wisdom of a Fool & Dad’s Army Radio Show) and David Benson (Goodnight Sweetheart & One Man, Two Guvnors) play every cherished character of Charles Dickens’ classic story. This beautiful new staging, suitable for Ages 10+, tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooges’ path to redemption from greed and selfishness to one of compassion and humanity. It’s a powerful and touching story that will make you question your own generosity of spirit and wealth.
In addition to these wonderfully seasonal shows, there’s a chance to enjoy a festive film on the BIG SCREEN in the main Theatre on Monday 16th December. Tickets are £8 and include a glass of mulled wine (or festive soft drink) and a mince pie or stollen slice. White Christmas (U) starts at 1pm, The Polar Express (PG) at 5pm and Home Alone (PG) at 8pm.

Tickets for these family screenings are £3 and perfect for the under 12’s. No unaccompanied adults will be admitted.
