Once Upon A Time

Toured 2011 - 2012

A group of time travelling storytellers crash land in a Welsh town somewhere near you.  Dusting themselves off they start to tell their favourite fairy-tales.  Armed with trunks of costumes, musical instruments, buckets of energy and their trusted storytelling engine, they begin where all good stories should begin "Once upon a time..."  But their trusted story engine was damaged in the crash and before they know it they are forced to tell four stories at once!  ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Snow White and The Seven Dwarves’, ‘Hansel and Gretel’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ all get an outing in this fast, furious and fun family Christmas show.


Join our group of hilarious steam punks (think eccentric Victorian explorers with a time machine) on their unique journey through some of the best stories ever told, as they struggle to keep the wolves (and bears) from the door and desperately try to make it to “The End”.  With the help of the audience, our brave storytellers will try to answer those all-important Christmas questions, like “Why are her teeth so large?” and “Why does my porridge taste of ginger bread?”


Suitable for children, adults and woodland creatures alike.
