“Grimm Tales” is an immersive theatre experience, with five stories taking place all around the Bauer Theatre in a promenade-style show. Each story is approximately 15-minutes long and audiences will be divided into groups of 10 to be led from one story to the next around the Bauer. Our Tales include:

  • Hansel & Gretel” An intimate telling of the classic tale with a few extra twist and turns along the way through the forest.
  • Faithful Johannes” In the wake of the king’s death, esteemed servant Johannes is charged with bringing peace to the kingdom by protecting his new sovereign – no matter the cost to his personal safety.
  • Goose Girl at the Spring” A King wrongfully punishes his youngest daughter before learning important lessons about inner beauty, true love, and forgiveness.
  • Three Little Men In the Woods” In a cruel winter forest, a kind-hearted girl meets three strange men whose power to dole out punishment and reward affects everyone in the kingdom.
  • “Donkey Cabbage” A young hunter discovers a world just beyond his front door filled with evil witches, beautiful maidens, menacing giants and magical cabbage. A classic tale that shows us how one kind gesture can ripple further than the eye can see.

The show is recommended for ages 8 and up and involves walking up and down stairs and extended periods of standing.

TICKET INFORMATION: Tickets are limited to 50 audience members for each performance. There will be five groups with 10 audience members per group. Tickets are assigned based on your chosen group and the availability of tickets. The February 18 matinee performance is a non-travelling version of the show performed on the Bauer stage where tickets will be General Admission.

Please note: If you would like to be in the same travelling group as your friends or family members, please ensure you purchase tickets in the same group.

Who we are:

Theatre Antigonish is a non-profit, community theatre under the supervision of professional staff. It is based in the Bauer Theatre building on the StFX University campus. Productions during the fall and spring terms feature university and high school students, and residents of the local community. Occasionally guest artists are invited to act in or direct its productions.

Community Support:

Theatre Antigonish depends on the committed support of “town and gown” in all aspects of its operations. StFX University supports the Theatre by making its facilities and support services available, underwriting the operating costs of the Bauer Theatre building, and employing the Artistic Director and Technical Director.

University faculty, staff and students, and local businesses and individuals in the community provide generous financial and volunteer support as actors, musicians, costume makers, stage crew, and members of the Board and patrons.

Patrons:

We are most grateful for the generous financial support of patrons and program advertisers who help make our quality amateur theatre possible.
