The Messiah

By Patrick Barlow with additional material by John Ramm, Jude Kelly and Julian Hough

Three towering talents play a cast of thousands in this new comedy of Biblical proportions by the writer of the Olivier Award-winning West End hit The 39 Steps.

A travelling theatre troupe of two actors and an opera singer arrive by camel in the ancient town of Cheltenham to masterfully enact the greatest story ever told.

Join the absurdly talented Maurice Rose (Hugh Dennis), the alarmingly unpredictable Ronald Bream RAC (John Marquez), and the distinguished diva Mrs Leonora Fflyte(Lesley Garrett), in a hilarious Christmas comedy that conjures up the sublime, the ridiculous and the truly angelic.

Hugh Dennis is one of Britain’s best loved comics and an award winning and multi-award nominated actor and writer. He’s star of the BBC2 hit panel show, Mock The Week and BBC1’s hilarious sitcom Outnumbered. He is also a firm radio favourite, both writing and presenting Radio 4’s award winning comedy The Now Show and Radio 2’s It’s Been A Bad Week.

Lesley Garrett CBE is Britain’s best-known soprano, regularly appearing in opera, musical theatre, concert, television and on CD’s. For more than 30 years she has enjoyed one of the most successful careers of any modern-day, classically trained soprano. From Rossini’s celebrated opera The Barber of Seville at the Coliseum, to West End musical hits, The Sound of Music and Carousel, Garrett has become a real national treasure.

John Marquez is best known for his role as PC Joe Penhale in the ITV series Doc Martin and Ray Wilson in the BBC drama In The Club.

The Messiah promises to be the funniest and most magical Nativity you will ever see – playing in Cheltenham directly prior to Christmas.
