A Sweet Treat for Half Term with Hansel + Gretel

A Sweet Treat for Half Term with Hansel + Gretel

 Hunger. Gnaws at the stomach like a dog on a bone.

If only.. if only there were a cake.. a cake as big as a house!

Sometimes, if you want something badly enough, it might just happen… But getting what you want isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be.

With succulent music and film, puppets and masks, Horse + Bamboo have baked up a delicious treat of a show – dark, chewy and delicious at heart, yet coated with a sprinkle of something light, sweet and zesty. Hansel and Gretel promises to be a feast for the senses.

Hansel + Gretel follows on from the company’s successful Red Riding Hood tour and continues Horse + Bamboo’s ambition of taking a traditional tale and giving it their own twist. The show, for 5 and up, is beautifully presented with lots of fun involved.

Don’t miss this superb show at The Atkinson on Thursday 19 February and is suitable for ages 5+
