Grimm Tales Poster

Lancaster’s Williamson Park is the spellbinding setting for fairy tales to be told as the audience follow the drama by moving from one fantastic location to another.  Their magical journey will take them through a world of witches, wizards, fairies and frogs in this fun and fresh adaptation of the Brothers Grimm’s beloved fairy tales.

With the enchanting park as their backdrop, it falls to some unlikely storytellers to lead the audience through all the twists and turns of these famous stories adapted by Andrew Pollard.  Full of catchy songs, fantastic sets and dazzling costumes, this laugh out loud story will sprinkle magic on summer in Lancaster.

Presented by The Dukes and Williamson Park.

Written by Andrew Pollard and Directed by Sarah Punshon.
