Modern Films is pleased to announce that the CBeebies Christmas Show: Hansel & Gretel will be in cinemas throughout December 2020 - as an encore of the great family Big Screen experience from 2019!
The much-loved CBeebies Christmas Show is coming back to the big screen from the theatre stage for a family-friendly feast of Christmas fun, including interactive “A Christmas Trail” content exclusively created for cinemas alongside the Hansel & Gretel stage performance recorded at Edinburgh Festival theatre. A welcome treat in this year of limited theatre runs and live performances.
The show is an adaptation of fairy-tale classic Hansel and Gretel and features many of CBeebies' most popular talent, including, for the first time - Waffle the Wonder Dog!
The cinema-goers are set to be taken on a winter adventure through an enchanted forest as the story of Hansel and Gretel unfolds. The siblings must overcome the perils of the deep, dark wood in which they are lost, but with the help of the forest’s magical creatures and by not giving up, the pair prove to their family that the only thing that matters at Christmas is being together.
Hansel and Gretel is set against the backdrop and energy of the 1980s, inspiring the music, costume and set to get across the core message: never give up.
