Grimm Tales
Grimm Tales

Grimm Tales are coming to The Place Theatre in Bedford - but don’t be alarmed as this is a fantastic, family-friendly show full of magic and comedy.

The tales feature wicked witches and golden geese, queens and princesses with a magic donkey, seven dwarves, a mother spirit and a host of other fairy-tale characters.

The shows start on Thursday, February 12 and run until Saturday, February 14, at 7.30pm.

Adapted by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Grimm Tales is a rich feast of storytelling with lots of physical theatre and narration by senior pupils from Act One Theatre School.

With six separate stories, this production will be a showcase of talent.

Principle Sally Hammelev said: “This is such an ambitious production as it tests the seniors in so many different discipline. Be prepared for humour and the recreation of fairy tales as they used to be, certainly we aim to bring you an evening of storytelling at it’s best.”

Tickets are £7.50, concessions £6, children £5. The show is suitable for children aged over 12. Visit www.theplacebedford.org.uk
