James & Jamesy's O Christmas Tea Tickets

Bringing award-winning comedy to Victoria, James & Jamesy's O Christmas Tea is brimming with all the magic and delight expected in a top-class holiday show wrapped up in James & Jamesy's signature sense of play, perfect comedy timing and hilarious audience interaction. O Christmas Tea will be stopping in at the Royal Theatre for two shows on December 8th. When catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy's Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea, the friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy--with over 20 comedy awards to their name--sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade full to the brim with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas. "The Christmas season is a magical time of year that brings people of all ages together; a time when we are encouraged to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate a childlike excitement for merriment," explains Alastair Knowles. "We can't wait see new and familiar faces in the audience at the Royal!"

Oh Christmas Tea

The Christmas season is a magical time of year that brings people of all ages together; a time when we are encouraged to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate a childlike excitement for merriment, explained Alastair Knowles, who plays Jamesy, the quirky and playful half of London's three-time Impresario Award-winning duo. "O Christmas Tea's joyous holiday spirit sweeps spectators into an immersive adventure, leaving them bubbling with laughter and brimming with holiday cheer." "O Christmas Tea has become a tradition not only for audiences, but for us as well, reflects Aaron Malkin, who plays James. For the entire month of December, our lives are completely immersed in Christmas Tea, and each fall, we have a particularly thrilling time researching new stage effects that will help transform theatres into Christmas wonderlands. These effects help serve our constant search for new ways and more effective ways to help people of all ages embrace the power and joy of imagination."
