GRIMMS' FAIRY TALES 2016
8 - 30 October
To bring our 10th Anniversary Year to a close we set out to create a truly special experience for our audiences, and Grimms' Fairy Tales delivered on every level!
Our venue was a stunning antique Flemish mobile dance hall- a Spiegeltent - which we had brought over from Belgium especially for the show. Inside, the stained-glass windows, mirrors, central stage and booth seating created a truly enchanting atmosphere.
An original script written by Ant Stones, with original songs and music especially composed for the show by Tom Jack Merivale, saw five actors bring 40 characters to life from 10 of the Brother's Grimms' stories.
‘This young and energetic cast work their socks off switching costumes and characters, as well as whisking props on and off, all performed with evident enjoyment and at such amazing speed that it all seems like magic.’ British Theatre Guide
