An enchanting Christmas show for 5 to 11 year olds and their families.

Based on the famous tale of ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ by the brothers Grimm, this is a story of a simple miller and his hapless daughter, a treasure-obsessed King and a strange impish creature who can spin gold from straw (at a price) all set in the enchanted woods of Eastern Europe.
Travelling storytellers and musicians weave a comic tale of pride, mystery and greed using puppetry, drama, clowning and live music. Come and join us in the frosty glade as the story unravels!

The production toured regionally for xmas 2006 and 2007.

It was fantastic! All the children were amazed by the performance and couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed it!
