In December 2012 Tobacco Factory Theatres joined forces with international award-winning theatre company New International Encounter to bring you an enchanting show that transformed the Factory into a magical winter woodland. Adapting the classic fairytale Hansel and Gretel with a mix of brilliantly fun live music, clowning, humour, language and storytelling, this was a wonderful Christmas show for all the family.
In the middle of a cold, dark forest Hansel and Gretel are lost and hungry. But as they sit, shivering, they glimpse a tiny cottage through the trees… a cottage that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Its roof is made of gingerbread, the walls are made of chocolate cake, the door is made of boiled sweets and the windows of clear sugar glaze, but what’s inside? This Christmas, follow Hansel and Gretel into the frozen forest and find out.
