RESIDENTS are invited to immerse the family in a medley of fairy-tale magic fun during April.

What if the wishes were granted? What if the magic were real? Beasts and breadcrumbs, wolves and witches, frogs and fairies all join the fun in a stunning new adaptation of Grimm’s most magical tales on Tuesday, April 19 at The Lights theatre in Andover.

Residents will be able to head into the woods with Hansel and Gretel, or help the little elves to make beautiful shoes, watch a slimy frog become a prince, and meet the princess who is a champion of hide-and-seek. There is plenty of fun for everyone to enjoy when this show comes to town.
