Assembleth Theatre: Fairytales, Fables & Other Assorted Nonsense

A story of magic, wonder and rebellion. Fairy tales across the land live in fear. Fear for their lives, fear for their freedom and, most importantly, fear for their turnips. Why you ask? Because Little Red Riding Hood has taken control. The once sweet and innocent girl now rules The Fairy Tale Woods with an iron fist and a mob of incompetent wolves. The woods need someone brave, someone bold, and someone daring to free them from this oppression. Unfortunately, they’ve only got Susan. Faced with tax-collecting big bad wolves, radical talking pigs, and smorgasbords of poisoned fruit, Susan must try desperately to find a way to help the forest. If she starts a revolution along the way, well that can’t hurt anyone, can it?

Susan must team up with familiar favourites from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella and more to keep the literal wolves from the door. Ridiculous mishaps, outlandish love stories and a barnyard full of animals that won’t stop talking await in this riotous, rebellious comedy from Assembleth Theatre.

Suitable for families with children 8+years. This show is perfect for families with late pre-teens and teenagers. Assembleth Theatre has found that children of all ages enjoy the more physical and farcical elements, as well as the storyline.
