Bauble Trouble

Citizens Theatre


A gentle comedy full of silly slapstick and sillier songs about an ordinary family Christmas Eve that gets awfully messy – again.

Will Dad get the tree up in time for Santa coming down the chimney?  Every year he makes a right mess of putting up the decorations but this year his wee daughter will make sure everything goes to plan.  Or will she?

Come along to this brand new comedy Christmas show with fun and laughter and a song or two to join in with.


Fun, laughter and slapstick silliness for 3-6 years

Took my 2 granddaughters, aged 4 and 5, to bauble trouble this morning, christmas eve. What a brilliant production! Best show I have taken them to, absolutely loved it. Give my congrats to 'dad'and 'holly', plus musicians. The magic was complete with the arrival down the chimney of santa claus and giving them a present. Geared perfectly for their age. Well done to all involved. Another hit for the citz. All the best for 2014.

This was so good for my little girl who is 4. It was perfect for a wee girl who ended up crying at the panto last year!! Really good grin

Hi Emma, for Bauble Trouble we class babes in arms 18 months and under (as long as they sit on your knee and don't take up a seat). For the main auditorium this is 2 years and under.

Hi Fergie, almost 7 years old is not too young for this performance. We give the age recommendations as a guideline. Our mainstage performance The Jungle Book is recommended for 6 years and over, so it's entirely up to you! Bauble Trouble has a variety of matinees as listed above, call our Box Office on 0141 429 0022 for more information.
