Family Fun is just around the corner at Hull Truck Theatre this Half-Term

Enjoy Theatre as a family this February Half-Term at Hull Truck Theatre! Whilst the weather is still a little bit fresh, why not bring the family to warm up with some wonderfully imaginative children’s theatre?

On each weekend of this Half-Term we will be visited by acclaimed family theatre, beginning with WOLF! (inspired by Aesop’s fable, The Boy who Cried Wolf) and then The Twisted Tale of Hansel & Gretel presented by Open Theatre. Both of these shows are also included in our Family and Friends Offer; where you book four tickets in a single transaction and save £1 per ticket*.



Hull Truck Studio: Saturday 15 February – 11.30am & 2.30pm

Beneath the Moon, under the snowy mountains, amongst a flock of woolly sheep, Jack is bored.

Bored of watching sheep

Bored of counting sheep

but most importantly…bored of SHEEP

Down in the village just a whisper of a wolf will cause a panic!

Join us for an adventure and find out what happens when Jack cries WOLF! With original music, puppetry and a tale you thought you knew… from the makers of The Three Bears, Kitchen Zoo.

Inspired by Aesop’s Fable, The Boy who Cried Wolf

The Twisted Tale of Hansel & Gretel

The Heron Auditorium: Friday 21 February – 4pm and Saturday 22 February – 11am & 1pm

Presented by Open Theatre and MBD

Co-produced by Birmingham Hippodrome

Directed by Esther Simpson

A flustered storyteller is joined by a mischievous mockingbird as he follows Hansel and Gretel deep into the forest. All is not what it seems, as the characters start to tell their own version of this peculiar adventure. Come along and meet the wicked witch and her really rather eccentric chef in this truly imaginative version of Hansel and Gretel. Live music, hilarious performance and a mesmerising design ensures that this play will entertain and amuse the entire family.

All performances of this show are “Relaxed”, which means they are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed environment and include additional lighting, gentler sound effects and a friendly attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium†.

Recommended Age: 7+

Running Time: 60 mins
