This pantomime concert pays homage to Charlie Chaplin, a comedic genius. You’ll meet two lively characters: Charlot, a formerly famous composer now working as a poster artist, and Mademoiselle Cello. Join us as we watch their chance encounter in a London park blossom into a friendship that celebrates their love of music.
Fun, family-friendly activities are available in the lobby prior to each concert, so be sure to arrive early.
