In the Crucible, the Christmas musical She Loves Me runs from December 11 to January 15. The romantic comedy musical from the songwriters of Fiddler on the Roof and the writer of Cabaret,is based on the story that inspired 1990s hit romcom You’ve Got Mail.Amalia and Georg work together in a parfumerie in a picturesque Hungarian town. Constantly clashing, the two colleagues are at odds on the shop floor. But they do have one thing in common.

They’ve both answered a lonely hearts advert and now live for the letters they exchange, unaware of the identity of their true loves. As they count down the shopping days to Christmas, love and snowflakes are in the air.With a fantastic cast including Alex Young (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Guys and Dolls), David Thaxton (The Phantom Of The Opera) and Adele Anderson (Fascinating Aïda), She Loves Me will warm even the chilliest of winter evenings.
