Rumpel in the jungle


IT'S pantomime time – 'oh no it isn't, oh yes it is' – and that means our annual visit from the ever-popular Forest Forge Theatre Company.


This is always a tremendous evening's entertainment with bags of fun for adults and kiddies alike and this year's offering in the village hall on Thursday, January 3, is the tale of Rumpelstiltskin, beginning at 6.30pm.


The moral of this yarn is: never promise something you can’t deliver. You know how easy it is: “I promise to be good, I promise I will never lie and I promise my daughter can turn straw into gold.”


The Miller’s daughter is in a pickle thanks to her mother and her silly promise. How on earth do you turn straw into gold? Well there’s a certain little man who knows how…

From the team that brought last year’s hit ‘The Frog Prince and Other Tales’ Forest Forge and BumbleFly Theatre Companies present this brand-new adaptation of the classic Grimm’s fairytale.

The travelling professional players will bring their trademark anarchic storytelling and beautiful imagery to this well-known story of the short man with the long name. With magical effects and songs to have you singing your way home, this treasure trove of storytelling will shine like gold!

Tickets at £12 from Sandra Rummery (01258 840007).
