HANSEL AND GRETEL
Based on the story
by the Brothers Grimm
A delicious festive family treat!
The creative team that produced the award winning original adaptation of The Little Mermaid returns this Christmas with a musical version of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel.
Hansel and Gretel live with their loving father and wicked stepmother. One day as a punishment for spilling the precious milk the stepmother abandons the two frightened children in the cursed West Woods where they discover a beautiful, tasty gingerbread house. But is the house all it seems and will the children ever be reunited with their father?
Join a host of fairy tale characters including the wicked witch and two cheeky dancing pigeons as they help Hansel and Gretel find their way home in this heart-warming festive story.
