The Gingerbread Man
Based on the much loved Gingerbread Man story, and given an extra sprinkling of magic, our show is an exciting, interactive and sensory experience for little ones, with puppetry, singing, dancing and some original characters.
The story is told by the Old Woman, who needs the children to help make some important decisions as the story unfolds. Will the Gingerbread Man trust the fox or listen to advice? Will Hecky Pecky’s egg hatch? Will there be a happy ending?
“They will all be chanting ‘Run, run, as fast as you can …’ for weeks after.”
For children aged 2 - 5 years. Duration: 45 minutes.
