The Little Matchgirl (And Other Happier Tales) archiveStruggling to keep warm on the freezing winter streets, our impoverished heroine begins to strike her dwindling stock of matches. Each match she strikes conjures a new story, and while it burns she escapes into an enchanting world of magic and mystery. Inspired by the beautiful Hans Christian Andersen tales, we follow her through the spell-binding stories of The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor's New Clothes and Thumbelina. For adults and brave children alike this will be a truly remarkable theatre experience, full of music, laughter, puppetry and magic which asks us to consider the true meaning of Christmas spirit.
Performers Niall Ashdown, Edie Edmundson, Kezrena James, Guy Hughes, Katy Owen, Karl Queensborough, Elizabeth Westcott, Dave Johnsy (musician), Alex Heane (musician), Jon Gingell (musician).
