The Heart of Winter – December 7 – 10 2022

Stephen Crocker, chief executive and creative director at Norwich Theatre, said: "Tis the Season at Norwich Theatre is about providing opportunities for togetherness at this time of the year.

"We have something for everyone, from Joe Tracini and Rufus Hound in Jack and The Beanstalk at the Royal to a Die Hard parody on stage at the Playhouse."

Tickets go on general sale on Friday, July 29.
