HANSEL AND GRETEL – An interactive Christmas treat for families

IYAF Best of Brighton Fringe 2018: Children and Family award winners PaddleBoat Theatre Company bring ‘Hansel and Gretel’ a relaxed, inclusive theatre experience for early years and families to The Beehive on Wednesday 21 December 2022 with performances at 11am and 2pm.

Following 2018’s sold-out debut at the Exeter Northcott Theatre, Paddleboat Theatre Company are bringing ‘Hansel and Gretel’ to The Beehive. Families and anyone who would enjoy a relaxed, inclusive theatre experience are invited to join Hansel and Gretel as they venture into the woods, trailing breadcrumbs and sharing their story as they go. The mischievous siblings are searching for the magical market at the heart of the forest – but if they’re not careful they’ll find more than just sweets waiting for them in the deep dark woods…

This inclusive version of Hansel and Gretel is a sensory story full of magic, gentle interaction and integrated signing. With an enchanting woodland set, playful characters and poetic storytelling, it is a perfect first-time theatre experience for little ones.

Audience Responses –

“I came with my children and saw the world as a child again!”
“I found this a really beautiful piece of storytelling. Lightly inventive and playful, pitched beautifully for the children who were encouraged to use their imaginations.”
“This was my first experience of inclusive and sensory theatre. How wonderfully immersive and engaging it was. Perfect audience size and show length.”

Ticket prices are Adult £12, Child £8, Family £30 (2+2 or 1+3) and are now on sale here –
