The seniors and juniors of FYTG come together to create a new, imaginative and entertaining Christmas show, based on the carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas. The young actors have created their own responses to the unusual gifts that grow in size and grandness through the song. They have chosen who is receiving the gifts and how they might react to receiving them. These 12 short skits have been devised over 10 weeks with the artistic guidance of FYTG directors, through a programme that, week by week, has developed their ideas into well-formed dramatic pieces. The performances contain a range of theatre styles including dance, comedy, song, movement, mime, puppetry and masks. All the pieces are joined together by the singing of the carol to form an exciting and veritable Christmas Feast.

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse. Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991. The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance). It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

A fictionalised drama about legendary author Charles Dickens' possible real-life inspirations, and motivations for writing the classic story A Christmas Carol. It's 1843, and 31-year-old Dickens (Dan Stevens) hasn't had a commercial success in several years; he's facing a personal financial crisis after three critically panned books. So he decides to write a Christmas-themed book after encountering various strangers -- including a waiter named Marley, a greedy businessman, and a dry-eyed elderly man (Christopher Plummer) who says "humbug" at his business partner's funeral. When Dickens fails to secure a publisher, he decides to seek financing to self-publish. On a tight six-week deadline, Dickens begins to see the characters as memorable strangers and loved ones alike, with Scrooge (played by Plummer) popping up in his head and defending his miserly positions until the novella is done. Directed by Bharat Nalluri and starring Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer and Jonathan Pryce. Running Time: 104mins
