Presented by Gonzo Moose Theatre

Performance date and time
Thursday, 17th October 2019
7:30 PM

Is our heroine in grave danger? Yes. From what? Lot’s of things. Will she make it back alive? We can’t tell you.

The Brothers Grimm are kidnapped on the eve of publishing their final volume of what will become the greatest collection of fairy-tales ever to be published and it's down to their lesser known (but incredibly brave) sister, Lotte to travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront evil Rumpelstiltskin. Having previously thrilled rural audiences with hit shows The Thing That Came From Over There and What The Dickens, it is easy to see how Gonzo Moose have established themselves as one of the country’s leading companies producing shows for rural touring specifically aimed at family audiences. In this latest adventure, the three versatile actors perform as over twenty different characters (goodies and baddies) in this epic quest to save the day. Will Rapunzel’s hair be crucial to the plot? Should you risk a bite of Snow White’s apple? And are Hansel and Gretel going to be any use at all or will they throw Lotte to the mercy of the wicked witch? Inspired by the slapstick greats, Gonzo Moose always bring the house down – a thrilling show for all the family!

'An exuberant mash-up of improvisation, physical theatre, slapstick and satire.' The Stage 'Wild, crazy, inspired and devilishly funny.' Oxford Times
