A musical theatre version of this classic brother and sister tale of adventure and magic where we’ll have you humming along throughout and cheering as the witch slides down into our flaming oven.

Is hunger stronger than love? 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 the forest where the witches are waiting. Hansel and Gretel’s musical journey takes them from a house with empty cupboards and a step-mother who doesn’t like children to a house made of sweets and someone who just loves children – on toast!

Lyngo serve up a musical theatre treat with their own special recipe of multi-roled performances, captivating songs and beautiful imagery.

Turn up early for the show to explore ‘Lost in the Woods’, our interactive family experience. Push past trees in the entrance to our studio theatre, The Box, to find a darkened room filled with silvery trees. Use a torch to follow a trail of pebbles to find a secret room filled with music and illuminated by stars. We advise you give 10-15 minutes to explore ‘Lost in the Woods’ before seeing Hansel & Gretel.
