About the Show Less...

Join the award winning Theatr Iolo as they bring to life the magical stories of the Brothers Grimm. Read More >

In the dead of the night, the moon is hiding behind a cloud, and deep in the dark, dark forest two children are lost, scared and hungry…

How are we ever going to get out of this enormous forest?

A young girl, exhausted with work and deprived of a bed, lies down in the dirty ashes. Her stepsisters, with hearts as ugly as thorns, snigger at her.

Shake your leaves and branches, little tree,
Shower gold and silver down on me.

Join the award-winning Theatr lolo as they bring to life the magical stories of the Brothers Grimm, including Ashputtel (the original Cinderella story), Hansel And Gretel and Snow White.

This show is suitable for children aged six to 11.
