“Grimm Tales” to amuse young and old


EVERYONE knows the stories of Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel – but the Brothers Grimm collected many other less known folk tales 200 years ago.
Frodsham audiences have a chance to learn about some of the others when Frodsham Players present “Grimm Tales” at St Laurence Church from Tuesday March 28 to Friday March 31 at 7.30pm.
Philip Pullman, famed for the fantasy trilogy “His Dark Materials”has skilfully reworked the Grimm stories, including some of the less well known ones, for present day consumption and Philip Wilson has adapted them for stage.
The result is a weird and wonderful collection of stories, including tales of magical cabbages that turn men into donkeys, a selfish girl rewarded by constantly coughing up slimy toads and Hans, a remarkable hedgehog who herds pigs in the dark Germanic forest while playing the bagpipes most beautifully.
Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf will also be there and the result is a show to delight children and adults.
Tickets, priced at £8 for adults and £6 for under-16s or those in full-time education, may be booked online from www.frodshamplayers.com
or by telephone at 07754 455809 or in person at Dandelion, Church Street, Frodsham.
