Hansel & Gretal


Children’s classic part of children’s double-header

The Marlowe Studio - a performance space within the Canterbury theatre complex - is to host a fascinating production of children’s favourite Hansel & Gretal.

Produced by the Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company, the show features music, film, puppets and maks.

Recommended for those aged five and above, it tells the traditional tale with a twist.

It has two performances at 11am and 3pm on Saturday, January 31.

Following hot on its heels will be another children’s favourite.

Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus is descrived as “a lively show full of fun and feathers, and features original music and lots of audience participation”. It’s suitable for children aged three and above.

Author Mo Willems has won six Emmy Awards as a writer and animator for Sesame Street and is the creator of The Cartoon Network’s hit shows Sheep In The Big City and Codename: Kids Next Door.

It is at the theatre at 11am and 3pm on February 18-19. Tickets for both are £8.50.
