When a little girl leaves her home one day in search of her own adventure and pursuit of her Granny, she opens the door to voyages, challenges, visions and an unexpected new beginning.
Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved classic, The Little Match Girl, Match is the enchanting story of a young child’s hopes and dreams; simple pleasures and losses.
Join us for a heart-warming, magical and life affirming tale for all the family.
Experience beautifully inventive storytelling, puppetry, song and live music in this spellbinding production. Incredibly uplifting and raw, playful and tender, it is pure delight for younger audiences.
