PaddleBoat and Exeter Northcott Theatre present

Hansel & Gretel

Sat 21 Dec 2019 - Sun 5 Jan 2020

At the Barnfield Theatre

11am & 2pm (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s day)

The interactive Christmas treat for families – and anyone who would enjoy a relaxed, inclusive theatre experience – is back!

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 Christmas 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 wintry woods…

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