Rumpelstiltskin & The Snail of Destiny

Poor Polly Buckwheat, the Miller’s daughter, is in a bit of a pickle!  If she doesn’t turn a roomful of straw into gold by morning, the greedy King will turn a bit nasty.  But should she accept the kind help of an eccentric dwarf who mysteriously appears in her prison cell?

Of all the fairytale characters, Rumpelstiltskin has got to be the most mixed up.  He is helpful yet demanding; secretive yet nosy; short yet owning a name as long as his beard.  Not surprisingly, this story of transformation will make you laugh and gasp at the same time!

Using its trademark puppets, music, storytelling and transforming sets, Widdershins aims to create gold on stage with this new version of the Grimm’s classic tale.

Slime

Being a slug is hard. Everyone thinks you’re disgusting.

Slug and Caterpillar are starving, and the only leaf left in the garden is just out of reach. Slug thinks they should work together. Get the leaf, eat the leaf, play a game, be friends. Caterpillar has other ideas. Slugs are gross, they’re covered in slime and they have terrible taste in music.

Things get sticky.
