Hansel and Gretel? (A Postmodern Pantomime) and The Snow Queen

8 December 2020 to 24 December 2020

Hansel And Gretel? (A Postmodern Pantomime)

Bill and Toni have just met and fallen head-over-heels for each other. Problem is, they’ve met on stage, and Bill’s been plucked from the audience to play Hansel … with Toni playing her sister Gretel. This is the least of enigmatic director Mal Sixsmith’s troubles, as Simon the Dame demands his role be expanded beyond its paltry fourteen pages.

Featuring musical numbers from Cardi B to Kate Bush, Hansel And Gretel? asks the important questions: what is postmodernism? What is pantomime? Is this really a kid's show, or just a load of pretentious twaddle?

Honestly? Probably, yes. But there is a rapping dragon, so it's worth coming just for that.

The Snow Queen


Greta’s brother, Kay, has been acting strange. He’s mean and moody and won’t play games. The Snow Queen must have snatched him, and left an imposter in his place! With her new friend, the wise-cracking, fame-hungry talking Crow to guide her, Greta must set out across the snow to search for her brother in the Snow Queen’s palace and bring him home in time for Christmas.

Funny, magic and full of surprises, this new modern adaptation of The Snow Queen is a perfect family Christmas adventure. So wrap up warm, grab a mulled wine from the bar, and enjoy this socially-distanced festive treat.
