Sherman Cymru TheatreAndy Hamilton

29th October 2016  7:30pm

Tickets: £22

In his 60 years on this planet, comedy writer and performer Andy Hamilton has experienced many changes. For instance, he was once a 6’4”-tall professional basketball player, until a tree fell on him. But, of course, change is an inescapable part of the human condition. Why? Is that fair? Some changes are good, some bad. Why can’t they be more clearly labelled? How did we end up working longer hours? Where did all the sparrows go? If you’re feeling flustered because of flux, Andy will teach you how to cope with the changes we have seen and the changes yet to come. Contains mild peril.

When the Emperor demands the coolest clothes to help him be, well, ‘cool’… The call is answered by a pair of wily Weavers, who concoct a cunning plan and land everyone in an embarrassing situation. Who will help the Emperor rediscover his joy and silliness?

Sherman Theatre and Theatr Iolo present The Emperor’s New Clothes / Dillad Newydd yr Ymerawdwr – a re-imagining of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. Written by award-winning playwright Alun Saunders, with songs and live music, there’s something here for the whole family this Christmas!

This Christmas as the Sherman takes you on another musical family adventure with The Borrowers.

Discover the secret world of Pod, Homily and Arrietty, whose lives are turned upside down by a dangerous encounter ‘above the floorboards’.

Size doesn’t stop this little family with a big heart. Hide from the ‘Human Beans’, battle with wasps and go on a magical journey that shows the littlest of people can make a big difference.

Following the sell-out success of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in 2015, this year another family classic will be brought to life with the Sherman’s Christmas sparkle.
