About The Bolds

A CHRISTMAS CRACKER OF A FAMILY SHOW!

Written and adapted for the stage by Julian Clary
Songs by Julian Clary and Simon Wallace
Arrangements and incidental music by Simon Wallace
Directed by Lee Lyford

The Bolds are just like you and me. They live in an ordinary house in an ordinary street, and they love to laugh. But there’s one slight difference… They’re hyenas!

How long can they keep their beastly secret under their hats? Join Mr and Mrs Bold, Betty and Bobby, as they navigate work, school and friends, all whilst trying to keep up their disguise.

With live music, songs and adventures​, this brand new Christmas show revels in the joy of being anything but ordinary. ​
