Hansel and Gretel

Derby Theatre Productions , Family Shows
Friday 30 November 2018 - Saturday 5 January 2019

Follow our trail of breadcrumbs into the woods next Christmas for a deliciously festive treat, perfect for ages 7+ and their families and friends.

Hansel and Gretel need to get back home in a hurry, but in the enchanted woods there’s a cottage made entirely of sugary sweets and gorgeous gingerbread, not to mention a wicked witch to contend with. Can Gretel save the day and rescue her brother? And can Hansel leave the lollipops alone and actually help?

Derby Theatre’s Christmas production team bring another magical and enchanting tale to the stage. With lashings of original music, heaps of colourful costumes and a super scrumptious talented team of actor-musicians, Hansel and Gretel cooks up a mouth-watering show.

Relaxed Performances: Tuesday 18 December and Thursday 3 January at 2pm

Relaxed performances are specifically aimed to appeal to audience members who are on the autistic spectrum or have sensory sensitivities, or those who would benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere as regards to making noise or moving around. 

Each Relaxed performance will be adapted for the specific needs of the audience – house lights may remain on at a low level throughout, other lighting effects will be toned down and the volume of sound effects reduced.  Audience members will also be free to leave the auditorium during the performance and a ‘chill out’ area will be available.  There will also be some support materials such as a social story and synopsis of the production available beforehand.  All of these adaptations are intended to make the theatrical experience less stressful for our patrons with specific needs.


Prices from: £12.50 - £28.50
