We are beyond thrilled with the talent in Wales and we can’t wait for the children and cracker the dog to create a magical family experience with plenty of sparkle and shine at Wales Millennium Centre.’

Join teacher Mr Maddens and his crazy assistant Mr Poppy as they struggle with hilarious children, and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.
