Zombie-rella and Blood Red Hood£5 - £7 Tickets
Part of the Big Imaginations Children’s Theatre Festival, 19 October – 5th November 2017
Join performance poet Joseph Coelho, winner of the 2015 Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award, as he unravels familiar fairytales to create fresh contemporary classics in an enchanting performance for young and old alike.
A mysterious vaudeville storyteller with a magical top-hat and coat unwinds the true stories behind the happily ever afters, which are maybe not as charming as you remember!
Discover the true tale of Cinderella, where she dies and becomes a zombie and falls in love with a vampire prince. And of course, there’s the true tale of Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf-hunter who never leaves her home without her shield, axe and blood-red stained cloak.
After the show there will be a chance to meet Joseph and purchase signed copies of his books, as well as talk about his work.
