Show description

Rapunzel’s sick of people going on about her hair so she takes matters into her own hands. Janet rescues Tomlin from the wild woodland fairies by giving him a cuddle – even when he turns into a wolf, a snake and a burning stick. Goldilocks is scared of the three bears so very surprised to find that they’re totally terrified by her. The Nanny Goats Tuff aren't taking any nonsense from the Rock n' Roll Troll.

The stories offer simple life lessons for girls and boys; be yourself, be kind, be open minded and be brave. Fabulous furry fun for all ages.

“A first class piece of children’s theatre” Paul Graham, Market Theatre Ledbury

“It was the best play EVER” Cressie, age 6
