Merlin Theatre Productions presents

Hansel and Gretel

Based on the story
by the Brothers Grimm

A delicious festive family treat!

The creative team that produced the award winning original adaptation of The Little Mermaid returns this Christmas with a musical version of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel.

Hansel and Gretel live with their loving father and wicked stepmother. One day as a punishment for spilling the precious milk the stepmother abandons the two frightened children in the cursed West Woods where they discover a beautiful, tasty gingerbread house. But is the house all it seems and will the children ever be reunited with their father?

Join a host of fairy tale characters including the wicked witch and two cheeky dancing pigeons as they help Hansel and Gretel find their way home in this heart-warming festive story.
