Come and see the story unfold of Hansel & Gretel, the classic tale told with a 21st century twist.

Hildegard – under the spell of the evil villain, Nightshade – abandons her step-children, Hansel & Gretel, deep in the forest. Alone and scared, the children find themselves led into Nightshade's candy cottage by two evil crows, where the children are kept hostage and fattened up for eating. Concerned, Prince Johann forms a search party with the help of Wolfgang (his aide), Fritz (the children's father), Dame Peggy Pumpernickel, and Wally (her dimwit son).

What could possibly go wrong? Will they succeed with help from the fairy of the forest, Bluebell, and rescue the lovely Hansel & Gretel from the clutches of deadly Nightshade? The only way to find out is to see our show – packed with songs, dances and laughter!

Hansel & Gretel is a pantomime for the whole family and a great way to introduce children to the world of theatre.
