Best Bits

Featuring a life-size gingerbread house, this production follows Hansel and Gretel as they travel deeper and deeper into a dark, forbidding forest.

There, in the shadows, you might glimpse a figure in a red hood chased by a wolf, or a witch’s hut standing tall on chicken legs; all manner of magical beasts lurk in these woods.

  • A unique promenade theatre experience recommended for ages 6+
  • A brand new adaptation of one of the Brothers Grimm’s most beloved stories
  • This immersive fairytale is guaranteed to fright and delight curious children and adventurous adults alike.
  • Follow the characters through Covent Garden's Actor's Church's beautiful, rose-filled gardens.
  • From the Offie Award-winning team behind Treasure Island (Best Production for Young People, 2016/7)
  • A magical outdoor theatre experience for the whole family 
  • The perfect summer holiday treat
