Hansel and Gretel come to The Met for Christmas 2014

The Met is pleased to announce that the 2014 Christmas production will be Rossendale based Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company’s adaptation of classic fairytale Hansel and Gretel, running from Tuesday 16 – Wednesday 24 December.


Brother and sister Hansel and Gretel are lost in the woods and they’re so hungry that they could eat a house – so imagine their luck when they come across a house made out of gingerbread and cake.


Sometimes, if you want something badly enough it might just happen, but getting what you want isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Inside the very sweet house is a very sour witch. Hansel and Gretel are going to need their wits about them to escape her.


Using puppets, masks, film and music, Horse + Bamboo have created a delicious treat of a show – dark, chewy and delicious at heart, yet coated with a sprinkle of something light, sweet and zesty.


Hansel and Gretel is suitable for ages 5+. Tickets to see the show start at £8 and are available now. To book tickets or for more information phone Ticket Office on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
