Christmas Actually

“More than anything, this is a show that will bring a lot of joy into people’s lives. Love Actually fans will absolutely eat it up, but even non-fans will find this show hard to resist.” – ★★★★★ Time Out 

From the creators of Rumour Has It and Lady Beatle comes the festive event of the year: Christmas Actually – the world’s most-loved movie soundtrack live on stage.

Starring Queensland’s first lady of song Naomi Price (The Voice Australia, Ladies in Black, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Christmas Actually delivers all the hits from beloved holiday classic Love Actually wrapped up with a sprig of holly and The Little Red Company’s trademark comedy and charm.

Relive the magic musical moments from your favourite festive film including smash hit songs by Mariah Carey, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy, Kelly Clarkson, The Beach Boys and The Beatles, brought to life by a band of Australia’s top musicians and superstar vocalists.

Bursting with nativity lobsters (yes, more than one), cinnamon sticks and endless fun, Christmas Actually is the ultimate silly-season starter.

Christmas Actually premiered at La Boite Theatre in November 2018.
