Snow White and other Tales from the Brothers Grimm

3rd December 2016 - 7th January 2017

The North Wall Arts Centre


“Everybody’s got a bit of Grimm in them”

We entered into the magical world of the Brothers Grimm for our sixth family Christmas production at the North Wall Arts Centre. Set in the round with cabaret style seating, our cast of six wowed audiences playing multiple roles as they told the stories of Grimm classics Star Girl, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, The Moon, Rumpelstiltskin and God Father Death. This spectacular production was made even more magical with original scores from composer Gareth Jones and choreography from Kate Olivia.

“I urge anyone and everyone to go and see this. High energy, witty, engaging, and also very moving. The cast are a joy, the set and costumes beautiful and the music excellent.” TripAdvisor review

“Whilst the stories may be familiar, the telling of all of them is certainly original. The players don’t fall thoughtlessly into the usual pantomime clichés so the show keeps it’s freshness throughout. This is a first-class Christmas show and highly recommended!” Daily Info
