Rumpelstiltskin and the Snail of Destiny

Presented by: Theatre of Widdershins

Sat 26th Oct 2019 to Sat 26th Oct 2019

Price: £9.00 - £32.00

Running time: 11-11.50am (all ages) and 2.30-3.20pm

Ages: 4+

Poor Polly Buckwheat, the Miller’s daughter, is in a bit of a pickle! If she doesn’t turn a roomful of straw into gold by morning, the greedy King will turn a bit nasty. Should she accept the kind help of an eccentric dwarf who mysteriously appears in her prison cell?

Rumpelstiltskin has got to be the most mixed up of fairytale characters. He is helpful yet demanding; secretive yet nosy; short yet owning a name as long as his beard. Not surprisingly, this story of transformation will make you laugh and gasp at the same time! 

Using its trademark puppets, music, storytelling and transforming sets, Widdershins creates gold on stage with this new version of the classic Grimm’s tale.
