Gingerbread Man

Thursday 25 November 2021 @ 4:30 pm

Fersands & Fountain Community Project, Woodside

Thursday 25 November 2021 


Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre

Ages 3+


Imagine a world made entirely of biscuits:  trees, houses and stars in the sky.  Into this beautiful world comes The Gingerbread Man, creating havoc wherever he goes. He meets a majestic Cow, a stubborn Goat and an opportunistic Bird. 

But…….Can Gingerbread Man outwit the dastardly Fox…….?

With a foot-tapping ‘Yummy Chase’ soundtrack, reminiscent of an old movie and minimal language this is a tremendously popular story.

A visual feast specially devised for younger children aged 3 + years.

“Pure dead Brilliant” – Acre Dykes Nursery Audience

“We loved: the cable car, when the Gingerbread Man fell in the water and got wet, and of course, when the fox ate him….. “ Machanhill Nursery

“Beautiful show, very Artistic” Paint Pots Nursery

“Just fabulous” – Birnam Arts Centre

“Everyone absolutely LOVED this show – children, staff and parents! All the children were engaged and mesmorised by the clever storyline, scenery, music and props and enjoyed learning about the mechanics of the props and why the storyline was different. Would definitely recommend this and will certainly book again! Thank you!” – Miss Mill and Primary 1/2, Coaltown of Balgonie
