“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+
