FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans AL4 0JQ
Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company have been making and touring high quality theatre for over 30 years. To sustain the company for this long they have had to keep their work fresh whilst also still providing Horse + Bamboo’s distinctive visual impact. Horse + Bamboo’s audiences leave with a mind full of lasting images that can rarely be compared to anything seen before or after.
Hansel + Gretel follows on from the company’s successful Red Riding Hood tour and continues Horse + Bamboo’s ambition of taking a traditional tale and giving it their own twist. The show, for 5 and up, is beautifully presented with lots of fun involved.
Hunger. Gnaws at the stomach like a dog on a bone.
If only.. if only there were a cake.. a cake as big as a house!
Sometimes, if you want something badly enough, it might just happen… But getting what you want isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be.
With succulent music and film, puppets and masks, Horse + Bamboo have baked up a delicious treat of a show – dark, chewy and delicious at heart, yet coated with a sprinkle of something light, sweet and zesty. Hansel + Gretel promises to be a feast for the senses.
Horse + Bamboo will tour this show extensively throughout the UK between October and March including Christmas runs at The Met, Bury and The Civic, Barnsley.
Don’t miss this superb show at Trestle Arts Base on Sunday 28 December at 2pm and 4.30pm
“… A theatrical spell, which is quite unique… And accessible to everyone.” – The Guardian
