What is a Mirror Tent?

Our Mirror Tent - La Gaiete - was built in the 1930s in Belgium. It is a wooden and metal structure with beautiful stained glass windows.

Audiences sit in booths and row seating surrounding the central circular stage.

Their real name is a Spiegel Tent, and were originally used as mobile dance halls and are now frequent sights at festivals all over Europe and the UK. Our Mirror Tent will also have an indoor bar and will be heated.

8 - 30 OCTOBER 2016

Directed by Charlotte Conquest | Designed by Susannah Henry

Sound by Matt Eaton | Lighting by Mark Dymock

Original Music & Lyrics Composed by Tom Jack Merivale

Adapted by Ant Stones

“Once upon a time…”

...so begins the best adventures. This autumn we’re going to whisk you away on a magical journey into moonlit woods and mystical mountains…but keep an eye out for talking frogs, trapped princesses, deliciously scary witches, cunning wolves, musical donkeys and the scrummiest cottage you ever saw!

A cast of 5 actors will bring to life 40 weird and wonderful characters from 10 of the Brothers Grimm's delightfully twisted tales: from the much-loved Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Cap, and Rapunzel, to the less well-known stories of One Eyes, Two Eyes and Three Eyes and The Musicians of Bremen.

For our venue we’re bringing a stunning antique Mirror Tent - La Gaiete - all the way from Belgium.

In these beautiful venues, light and dark come together to create a very special experience: the perfect setting for the most fabulous fairy tales of all time.

This brand new adaptation is brought to you by the same director/writing team as last year’s sell-out Alice in Wonderland.

GSC’s final show of our 10th Anniversary Year promises to be an adventure for all ages. Suitable 6+
