Hansel & Gretel is the 31st annual charitable pantomime production presented by PwC as part of its Community Affairs Programme to support the local community.

PwC's aim is to bring joy to children from inner city schools and charities. Each year it gives free tickets to around 8000 children from local boroughs, often the only chance those children get to experience the magic of live theatre, and ticket revenues help contribute towards that experience.

Hansel and Gretel live a wonderful life in the village of Great Giggleswick where their school teacher is a singer and their dad has just taken on the 'three little pigs' as apprentices. But one day they get lost in the woods and stumble across an enchanted Gingerbread house. Who is the owner of the house and what does she want with Hansel and Gretel? Can the magical woodland sprite 'Bluebell' help them? Come along to cheer, sing, hiss & boo as we meet Hansel and Gretel and a whole host of other characters from the village of Great Giggleswick and follow them on their adventure.

Hansel & Gretel has been brought to life by around 200 PwC staff and pantomime alumni, both on stage and behind the scenes. Every year, the audience are amazed that this is an amateur dramatic group. Come along and see for yourself.
