The Three Wise Women: She Productions set to return to East Riding Libraries with a brand-new festive family musical

The Three Wise Women is an accessible and affordable show taking place in libraries across East Yorkshire.

East Riding Libraries have partnered with local theatre company, She Productions, to bring a touch of holiday magic to libraries across the county this December. With original songs and themes inspired by workshops with the Polish Community Centre in Hull, The Three Wise Women centres around embracing the unexpected and adapting to the new.

Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, She Productions will be performing in thirteen libraries across the East Riding. The perfect introduction to theatre for ages 4+, the show promises a fun and interactive experience for families whilst remaining affordable. With eco-friendly set, props, costumes and themes, the performances are kind to the environment, too.

Meet 9-year-old Bobbie.

Bobbie collects Christmas tree decorations.

Bobbie likes it when things stay ‘right-on-time’.

Bobbie has a new baby sister.

On this Christmas Eve, Beverley Westwood awaits its annual sledging tradition. Bobbie zooms down the hill with her cherished decorations safely tucked in her pocket. But all too soon her mother calls out, “We’d best get the baby home.” In her haste, a frustrated Bobbie unknowingly leaves her three beloved decorations stranded in the snow.

As these three decorations embark on a magical journey of their own, they swap camels for cows, follow the stars, and even form feathered friendships with a band of litter-picking Magpies, but are they ‘Wise’ enough to work together to find their way home?

Councillor Nick Coultish, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, said: “I’m very happy to welcome She Productions back to East Riding Libraries after such a success last year with their show, ‘Pirates of Christmas Island’.

“These cultural events are not only brilliant for our library service, but also for the residents of the East Riding. I’m sure they will be an event for the whole family to enjoy!”

Annie Kirkman, founding member of She Productions, said: “At She Productions, we love making exciting new theatre that can reach local young people across the region. Our shows are made by East Riding creatives for East Riding people.”

Recommended for children aged 4+, the musical will be touring East Riding Libraries from 2-23 December. Tickets are £4 (babes in arms go free) and are available now at

The ticket price has been subsidised to bring affordable events to communities across the East Riding.
