A woodland tale

The Theatre of Widdershins presents a show unlike any other - with puppets, storytelling, original music and a treasure hunt!

"Snow White and Rose Red – sisters, twins, best friends – have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood. Not as wordly wise as their Mother would have liked, they are nonetheless kind, caring and sometimes a little over enthusiastic in their deeds! 

When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear, a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there a sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to?

All questions will be untangled in this new show from the Woods of Widdershins, using puppets, storytelling, original music and a fantastical fairytale forest."

You might remember that the Theatre of Widdershins was here in November, making props for this very show! If you come along, you will see your very own creations in the background of the show..."
