A brand-new Christmas show for adventurers aged 4-10
and their grown-ups.

Follow the trail of breadcrumbs to Leeds Central Library where magic hides behind every bookshelf, and there’s always more than two sides to every tale. Buckle in for a rollercoaster of magic, music and mayhem as Hansel & Gretel crash-land in an enchanted world of stories and adventure.

From the team who brought you The Princess and the Sprout (2018) and Billy Shakes: Wonderboy! (2019) comes a brand-new unmissable Christmas show for the whole family.

All performances are followed by an interactive ‘Meet and Greet’ session with the cast on stage.

Running time approx. 60 mins (with no interval).
