The Gingerbread Man Runs as Fast as He Can to the Court
The Gingerbread Man Runs as Fast as He Can to the Court Theatre
THE GINGERBREAD MAN will be running as fast as he can on The Court Theatre's stage from 3 October.
Dan Allan, Kathleen Burns and Tom Trevella star in this new version of the classic fairytale adapted by Dan Bain and Carl Nixon into a fun-filled production "filled with silliness and surprises", according to director Melanie Camp.
In Bain and Nixon's version, the audience help a hapless chef (Trevella) figure out the recipe to create the gingerbread man before the freshly-baked biscuit (Allan) decides he doesn't want to be a snack and goes on the run from a variety of pursuers (played by Trevella and Burns).
Camp describes the show as "magically theatrical" with plenty of physical comedy, accompanied by a funky musical score by Hamish Oliver.
THE GINGERBREAD MAN is at The Court Theatre from 3 - 13 October and recommended for ages 4 and over.
