The Queen’s Hall Theatre Club is preparing to spread Christmas magic with Patrick Barlow's comedy The Messiah.

Known for his humorous adaptation of The 39 Steps, Patrick promises a hilarious retelling of the Nativity.

Satirising both the theatrical and the pretentious, two men in suits and an opera singer will bring comic anarchy to the Annunciation, the journey of the Magi, wicked King Herod, the humble shepherds and to the birth itself.

Unpredictable and peppered with shades of Ronnie Barker, Morecambe and Wise and Monty Python, can the trio manage to show people how the power of theatre can evoke the reverence, the message and the magic?

People are urged to come along and find out.

The production promises comic chaos and is set to run from November 22-25 at 7.30pm in The Studio at Queen's Hall, Hexham.
