Magical family fun for little ones this October half term at Sherman Cymru with Hans Christian Andersen inspired story for ages 2-6
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. Match is a heart-warming, magical and life affirming tale made especially for children aged 2-6 .
And Bristol’s freshest Theatre Company, Dot and Ethel will bringing their Hans Christian Andersen inspired story, Match to the Sherman Theatre from 27- 29 October.
With 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.
