Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is delighted that Emma Swan will be returning for this year’s production of, Sparky the Elf and the Secret Toyshop. This wonderful immersive children’s theatre piece will be playing from Thursday 5 December to Tuesday 24 December. The show took place in a secret location in Romford’s Mercury Mall, and Sparky will be causing havoc again this year, this time somewhere hidden in Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch itself. ‘Just back from Sparky the Elf, what a fantastic and mesmerising production for young ones (and old too!!)… a truly magical afternoon!!’ – Audience comment from last year’s production. Emma Swan returns as the eponymous Sparky, and is sure to delight audiences and critics alike. She says ‘I’m a huge Christmas fan and I’m delighted to be performing with the Queen’s Theatre again! It’s an immersive theatrical experience and it’s very special because it’s not quite like going to the theatre and watching a show. It will feel like you’re entering into the world of Sparky!’ Written and directed by Douglas Rintoul (the Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director), this unique experience is also from the team last year’s sell-out festive treat, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.
