Fully staged string puppet production with a faithful re-telling of a traditional story by the Brothers Grimm. Left behind in the forest, can two innocent children survive? Hansel is quite smart, but it takes his sister Gretel to outsmart the evil witch and bring about a happy ending. The show combines specially composed music and magical scenic effects in Cumbria's very own dedicated 128 seat puppet theatre.

The Pied Piper of Hamelin
15/12/2013 - 03/01/2014
This will be the first production to be built for our new 128 seat puppet theatre. We have been given permission from Michael Morpurgo to base the production on his version of the story. The book illustrations by Emma Chichester Clark, are the inspiration for the scenery and costumes. Northumbrian musicians "Landermason", have composed a beautiful musical score. Master storyteller Michael Morpurgo's version of this classic tale about the mysterious piper who visits Hamelin town and leaves with its children, shows that the story is as relevant now as it ever was. All Tickets £8:00 Upfront will use the usual combination of rod and string puppets for which the company are well known. Performances: Dec. 15th & 31st at 2pm only Dec. 21, 22, 23, 24, 28,29,30 & 31st at 1pm & 3:30pm Jan. 2nd & 3rd at 2pm Please note that both performances on Christmas Eve are now sold out
