The popular fairy tales of Red Ridinghood, Jack (and the Beanstalk), Cinderella and Rapunzel are interwoven with that of the Baker and his Wife and their quest to have a child
However this re-telling goes beyond ‘happily ever after’ as the familiar characters find themselves in unfamiliar circumstances and hopes and dreams are questioned and revisited.
With music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by James Lapine, this musical reshapes the traditional fairy tale stories. Made into a film with an all star cast in 2014, the musical now comes to Helston and is presented by the award winning Helston Theatre Company.
21-25 April, Epworth Hall Helston.
