Looking Grimm 2015
Welcome to Looking Grimm!
It is very exciting (oh yes it is!!) to welcome you to our first inclusive pantomime, which has been written by the Artistic Team (Cath and Sammy) in collaboration with our talented Company Theatre members.
The idea to create our own Cotton Shed pantomime has been cropping up over the last few years and we finally decided the time had come after a discussion with our members. We wanted a fun, uplifting and feel good production after our two recent highly acclaimed dark and moving theatre pieces, ‘Face It’ and ‘Green’.
We also wanted the Beginners and Children’s Theatre to have the opportunity to perform in one of our full-scale productions. All of the children involved have worked incredibly hard and inclusively throughout the whole rehearsal process and have had lots of fun, as have Sammy and I teaching them!
Looking Grimm is a story about the two infamous Grimm brothers, Jacob and Willhelm who are searching for the best stories in the land to include in their perfect book of fairy tales.
With their silly Mother Dumpling and even sillier brother, Dudley, as well as a few well known characters along the way, including a couple of pantomime villains (booooooo)!
Looking Grimm is a funny, uplifting pantomime and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it!
Please remember that Cotton Shed Theatre Company is a charity and we rely heavily on donations to keep running.
