THEATRE OF WIDDERSHINS: RUMPELSTILTSKIN & THE SNAIL OF DESTINY - RELAXED PERFORMANCE
Colchester Arts Centre
This show is a RELAXED PERFORMANCE.
Relaxed performances are perfect for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment – including those with an autism spectrum condition or learning disability. What's different? The lights in the audience will be up so that it's not too dark - you can make noise during the show, and you can come and go as you please.

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.
Doors open at 1.30pm with the show starting at 2.00pm.
