The Box Of DelightsWilton's Music Hall and Hero Productions present an adaption of Poet Laureate John Masefield's classic 1935 children's fantasy novel, a forerunner to the Narnia and Harry Potter genres. This enchanting reworking of The Box of Delights returns to the gloriously Christmassy surroundings of Wilton's Music Hall following a successful run last year. This stage show, written by children's author Piers Torday (who is behind the bestselling Last Wild trilogy and new novel There May Be A Castle), tells the story of young orphan Kay Harker, the boy who must save Christmas. On the train home for the holidays he encounters an old magician who tasks him with protecting his Box of Delights, a wondrous device with time travelling powers. An exciting time-travel adventure brought to life with Justin Audibert directing and Olivier award-winning Tom Piper designing.

 

About Wilton's Music Hall

In the nineteenth century, Wilton's Music Hall was a great mirrored hall lit by a vast chandelier, with 27,000 crystals and 300 gas jets. Opera, operetta, variety shows and old-style music hall were played out to raucous cockney audiences of over 2000. More about Wilton's Music Hall
