About the Show/Event
Information for Rumpelstiltskin and the Snail of Destiny at Arts Centre, Colchester (Kids show). 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. But should she accept the kind help of an eccentric man who mysteriously appears in her prison cell? Of all the fairytale characters, Rumpelstiltskin has got to be the most mixed up. 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, Theatre of Widdershins will create gold on stage with their version of the Grimm's classic tale.
Approximate runtime 55minutes (including any interval).
