Edward M. Haberdasher has crafted very peculiar earmuffs for his very particular daughter Cecilia Maria. (The earmuffs come with three settings: Snowflake, Tinkly Bells and, for hardcore noise-prevention scenarios, Cheesegrater). Don’t shout about it but Cecilia Maria thinks they make her look fascinating and has whispered her thanks. This is an upbeat comedy-adventure about a sensitive musical-prodigy making a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world. Starring Genevieve Hulme Beaman and Louis Lovett Ages: 7+

In this story it seems to be as the poor woodsman’s empty stomach goes to his head, he gives in to the bony step-mother and they leave Hansel and Gretel in the forest, not just once but twice and the second time there won’t be any moonstones to follow back home. Instead they follow their noses to the sugary heart of darkness… A musical theatre version of this classic brother and sister tale of adventure…
