Hansel and Gretel

An interactive treat for families, and anyone who would enjoy a relaxed, inclusive theatre experience.

Join Hansel and Gretel as they venture into the woods, trailing breadcrumbs and sharing their story as they go.

This inclusive version of Hansel & Gretel is a sensory story full of magic, gentle interaction and integrated signing.

WHY? With an enchanting woodland set, playful characters and poetic storytelling, it is a perfect first theatre experience for little ones
