The Birmingham Press

Dive into the magic of childhood imagination where anything is possible… when the empty boxes from Christmas presents can transform into a rocket and take you on countless thrilling adventures.

Full of fun and surprises, and sprinkled with humour, Starchitects Save Santa! is an exciting intergalactic Christmas story the whole family will enjoy.

The show is perfect for the whole family - from tiny tots to primary aged children and older siblings, parents and grandparents.

From £12.50 (schools). Standard tickets from £18.50 (from £16.50 for under 16s).

My two young children were simply transfixed by what they were watching. This is a gorgeous little story depicted in such a way that words are unnecessary

Drama Tots

Relaxed and BSL performances available 

Relaxed events at MAC are designed to improve the experience for people with Autistic Spectrum conditions, sensory, motor and communication disorders, learning disabilities and anyone who would benefit from a more adapted environment.

The main lights remain on, the volume is reduced, and we hope you’ll feel comfortable to remain inside should you need to make noises or move involuntarily. We sometimes offer a pre-show introduction to the venue and performers, signalling anything that may be big, loud, or unexpected.

If you need a break, you can speak to our staff and they will point you towards a quiet area to relax. 

Starchitects Save Santa! doesn’t just fizz, it explodes into an hour of great fun. I smiled and grinned from start to finish.
