Twisted Tales

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.

Stone Soup, presented by Bronia Evers and One Moment in Time Storytelling, in association with Little Angel Theatre. Donate to Little Angel Theatre: https://bit.ly/3kyDgpD.  A new retelling of the classic European folktale. Elisabeth remembers back to a time long, long ago, when three travellers arrived in her village, claiming they could make soup from a stone…  This short film features puppetry, storytelling, original music, and a specially designed ‘crankie theatre’ with scrolling paper scenery.  The first recorded publication of Stone Soup appeared 300 years ago, yet this enduring folktale has never felt more relevant, with its themes of community, resilience, generosity and cooperative spirit.  The film will premiere at 11am on Sunday 11 April 2021 and will be available for one year.  If you were inspired by the community spirit in the story, why not make a decorative nature soup using things from your garden or local park? You can use our activity guide to help you: https://littleangeltheatre.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Nature-soup-activity.pdf  -  Credits:  Written and performed by Bronia Evers
Music and lyrics composed and performed by Martina Schwarz
Crankie theatre and shadow puppets designed by Bronia Evers
3D puppet design by Tinka Slavicek
Filmed and edited by Inti Rowland
Music mixed by Dan Barnfather

The Quangle Wangle's Hat | Free Performance for Children

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.
