Twisted Tales

Little Angel Theatre and @Kids’ Poems and Stories With Michael Rosen present 'Clever Cakes' from the book 'Clever Cakes and Other Stories' by Michael Rosen. Donate to Little Angel Theatre: http://bit.ly/2Wilwox

In stories, as in life, it pays to be able to think on your feet - especially if you are about to be eaten by a hungry bear! This is just one of the perils that face the clever children in these seven tales, which also feature a Devil-dog, Old Greyface the wolf, Giant Gobbleguts and Dump-demons.

Based on the story written by Michael Rosen
Performed by Nix Wood
Directed by Samantha Lane
Designed by Ellie Mills
Produced by Joe Rosen
Composed by Andy Hopkins
Filmed by Matthew Dove

Clever Cakes | Free performance for children

As theatres are forced to close their doors, and as many of our tour dates have been cancelled, we're making The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel available to stream online on Saturday
25th April 2020, 2.30pm!

A flustered storyteller is joined by a mischievous Mockingbird as he follows Hansel and Gretel deep into the forest. All is not what it seems, as the characters start to tell their own version of this peculiar adventure. Come along and meet the wicked witch and her really rather eccentric chef in this truly imaginative version of Hansel and Gretel. Live music, hilarious performance and a mesmerising design ensures that this play will entertain and amuse the entire family.

Presented by Open Theatre and Metro-Bolout-Dodo.
Co-Produced by Birmingham Hippodrome. Directed by Esther Simpson.

We are encouraging our audiences to set up their very own Relaxed Performance at home. 

Please visit our website, which contains information about how to set up a Relaxed Performance at home, lots of relaxed performance resources (including an Easy Read Story, Visual Story, Sonic Story, and more), printable tickets and theatre programmes, and lots of fun activities! bit.ly/HGTwistedTalesOnline.

Please donate what you can to our #OpenTheatre30 campaign to enable us to continue providing creative opportunities for young people with learning disabilities. Your support is greatly appreciated!

The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel

The Little Prince, presented by Metta Theatre. Donate to Little Angel Theatre: https://bit.ly/3kyDgpD.

A WW2 pilot has crashed in the middle of the Sahara. If she doesn’t find water soon she’ll die. But instead of water she finds a mysterious child – the Little Prince whose imaginative adventures and tales of far off planets quench a deeper thirst.

Written and recorded entirely through lockdown Metta Theatre have created a 6 track EP of songs from their new British musical spun into a short film retelling Antoine De Saint Exupery’s much loved story through the medium of shadow puppetry. 

Eventually the stage production of the musical will be a circus musical extravaganza in the same vein as Metta’s 2018 Little Mermaid.

Metta Theatre are an award-winning mid scale touring theatre company focusing on creating new cross-artform theatre. Founded in 2005 by writer/director P Burton-Morgan and designer William Reynolds they have collaborated with Little Angel Theatre on several projects over the years including a shadow puppet production of Benjamin Britten’s Canticles in 2010, a puppetry adaptation and 2014 UK tour of Alice in Wonderland, with acclaimed puppeteer Mandy Travis; and a circus/puppetry musical adaptation of Rob Biddulph’s Blown Away in 2017.

This film will be released for free on the Little Angel Theatre YouTube channel and will be available for one year.

Once you’ve watched the show, have a go at making your own shadow puppets. You can use our activity guide to help you: https://littleangeltheatre.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/The-Little-Prince-shadow-puppet-activity-sheet.pdf
