Hansel and Gretel is the perfect introduction to theatre for children aged 3-6.
It’s Christmas Eve but something’s not right in the woods. Pine trees are changing into Sweet trees. The river is flowing with treacle. All of this is the work of Sioned Siocled who is turning everything into sweets!
Only Hansel and Gretel stand in her way. They set off on an incredible adventure to save the woods. On their travels they’ll meet magical new friends including Spencer Squirrel and Trefor Tree. They’ll also learn that asking for help is the bravest thing anyone can do.
Filled with songs and laughter, this new version of Hansel and Gretel is the story everyone loves with an added delicious and delightful twist. Our irresistible Christmas show specially created for ages 3-6 offers wonder, enchantment and so much fun.
