Tales from the Brothers Grimm

Tales from the Brothers Grimm poster 2007

21st November 2007 - 12th January 2008

Mirror Tent, BMW


The well loved fairytales of the Brothers Grimm were interwoven into a modern and humourous narrative, with lots of vibrant costumes and visual action for children as well as intelligent writing and humour for the adults.

The sumptuous velvet drapes and ornately carved pillars of the antique Mirror Tent was a fairytale setting, decked out in twinkling fairy lights and leaves from the `enchanted wood`.

A zombie dance to the tune of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, a beautiful singing bird puppet and a vast array of fairytale witches and evil queens were just some of the highlights of this whirlwind production written and directed by Gari Jones.
