Hansel and Gretel, Eye
The castle ruins made an excellent venue for this musical version of the fairytale with the emphasis on comedy and updated dialogue.
After two perfect evenings for the first outdoor performances by Eye Theatre, it was third time unlucky for the matinee which went ahead in a thunderstorm.
Most of the audience stayed put but the credit must go to the cast, who had to work hard to make themselves heard.
This musical version of the fairytale with the emphasis on comedy and updated dialogue, created an appealing show on the lines of a summer pantomime.
The castle ruins made an excellent venue. The audience was involved throughout, being cast as the woodland creatures.
