Glass slippers, poisoned apples and magic lamps. The stuff of fables and legends. But over the centuries, through countless retellings, some of the important details have been forgotten.
This Christmas, Jacksons Lane invites you to gaze into the magic mirror and see the truth in this collection of tales. Did the princess really need rescuing? Was the witch all that wicked?
This is your chance to see Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood and two very charming princes as you’ve never seen them before, stepping out of the storybook to dance in the air, fly across the stage and dazzle with their fantastical feats.
A Christmas Circus Fairytale is directed by associate artist and Nearly There Yet’s Kaveh Rahnama, who created the much-loved, sell-out shows, The Party and Pinocchio.
**** “Sweet and playful… a barrel load of acrobatic charm” The Stage on Pinocchio
For all the family (recommended minimum age 3)
