Adelaide Festival TheatreIt’s the most wonderful time of the year as Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Guy Noble, joins Adelaide’s beloved Christmas Proms at Festival Theatre on December 14–16.


Feel the spirit of Christmas as musical magic comes alive in song and dance with performances by musical theatre star Lucy Durack (Wicked, Wizard of Oz, Legally Blonde) and Tap Pack members Jan Di Pietro (The Producers, Boy from Oz) and Sean Mulligan (Jersey Boys, Tap Pack). 


A joyous family experience for all ages, the much-loved concert series, directed by Christopher Horsey, will feature popular Christmas songs and traditional carols, and of course a special appearance from Father Christmas.


Audiences will also be treated to students from Norwood’s Barbara Jayne Dance Centre performing The Nutcracker Suite. Rising ballet star, 10-year-old Mietta Brookman, is set to wow audiences, joining Father Christmas on stage for a special performance.


Christmas-lovers can choose from four performances, including a special Something on Saturday edition of Christmas Proms for young families on Saturday, December 15, featuring a pre-show performance by the On Stage Choir and Christmas craft activities in the Festival Theatre foyer from 12:45 p.m.


Attendees can spread the festive cheer with an optional monetary donation benefiting the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation, which plays an integral role in providing access to the arts for children and schools with disadvantage. Donations can be made via Festival Theatre foyer displays at each performance.
