This delightful show features all of your favourite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), the Wolf, Granny, and the Witch in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. The musical focuses on a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.
