A festive show inspired by the visit of Thor the Walrus to Scarborough Harbour last Christmas opens at the town’s Stephen Joseph Theatre in December.

Thor is off on his holidays. He’s booked a few nights down South, then a short stop in Scarborough for New Year before he heads home to the ice and snow of the North Pole.

For now, he’s looking for a good spot on the shore for a quick snooze, a nice seaside snack to fill his big belly and hoping to make some new friends along the way.

Thor’s Great Big Adventure is a Stephen Joseph Theatre/CU Scarborough production, performed by Chavez Idjerhe, Crystal Jackson, Selwyn Peterken and Luke Simpson, and narrated by Paul Kynman. It’s written and directed by Rob Salmon, with original songs by Alice Kynman. Design is by Julia Wray, lighting design by Mark ‘Tigger’ Johnson and puppetry advisor is Diana Logan.

Thor’s Great Big Adventure is suitable for children aged six and under. All performances are chilled, allowing for noise and movement in the auditorium, as well as re-entry for anyone who may need time away from the performance.

Thor’s Great Big Adventure can be seen at the SJT from 12 to 23 December. Tickets are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at
