The Merry Gentlemen
A Christmas entertainment
Book and lyrics by Dorothy Reynolds and Julian Slade
Theatre Royal, Bristol 24 December, 1953 for a season
A tale of an Edwardian Christmas. A light-hearted, Christmas musical-cum-revue, suited to any age of audience. It involves the impersonation of Father Christmas and all the trappings of the season. Lots of laughs, lots of cheery music and fun. As timeless as any pantomime, and much more original.
Cast doubles as reindeer, snowmen and extras
