The MAC and Cahoots NI co-present a brand new Christmas show for this season.

‘The Family Hoffmann’s Christmas Mystery Palace’, has been created by Paul McEneaney and Conor Mitchell.

It is an action-packed spectacular featuring lots of live music and magic for the whole family to enjoy.

The Family Hoffmann is a band of misfits and retired magicians who get back together for one last showcase.

It will transport the audience back into a world of wonder and weirdness, with dazzling effects, specular costumes and show-stopping songs.

Paul McEneaney, Director said: “The audience will leave the theatre wondering how this all happened”.

Some characters to look out for during the show are The Escapologist, The Professor, The Vanishing Boy, The Mind Reader and The Floating Lady.

The cast includes Abigail McGibbon (The Beadle), Kirstie Marie Ayers (Bess), Greg Fossard (Harold), Flo Fields (Marie), Philip Judge (Willard) and Hugh Brown (Narrator).

Opening in the MAC on December 3 and running to January 4, 2015.
