Stockings by the Fire: A Vaudeville Christmas Cabaret

Fri 2nd – Sat 3rd Dec 2011


“Fusing music, comedy, circus tricks & storytelling to create a selection of acts creepy, comic and Christmassy!”






Hecate Theatre Company


Hecate Theatre reassemble the team from their successful debut show, “A Halloween Cabaret,” for their own twisted take on the festive season. Inspired by the vaudeville shows of the early 20th century, “Stockings by the Fire” infuses music, comedy, circus tricks, storytelling, and a mild dose of audience participation, to create a selection of acts creepy, comic and Christmassy!

Featuring seven girls, a darkly festive set and a large old-fashioned suitcase, Stockings by the Fire' revolves around the theme of trying to create Christmas from the contents of the case, as each cast member demonstrates what ‘Christmas’ means to them. Hecate Theatre incorporate their idiosyncratic grisly humour and creative staging to produce a Christmas show for those who prefer 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' to 'Miracle on 34th Street.'
