It's Grimm!

Inspired by the works of Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm by Ben Kernow & Dan Bottomley
with music & lyrics by Dan Bottomley

You've heard the stories, but have you heard the right ones? Through the mystical portal, there lies a strange musical land; inhabited by even stranger people; furthermore there are people that aren’t even people; tap-dancing cats, sentient sausages and magical fish. But it’s not all fun and games, not for Gretel and Hansel anyway. Captured by a hideously unstable Witch, who is hell bent on fattening Hansel up to eat him. Now it’s up to Gretel to find and travel the perilous path to Town; negotiating all those who may seek to take advantage of an innocent wandering child along the way. Who will help her? The world weary Fisherman? The brave little tailor? Maybe even you?

 

With original music and a rich sound bed, heartily seasoned with comedy inspired by Blackadder, Shrek and sweet isolation madness; let’s face it: you’ve nothing better to do. Plug in and enter the woods if you dare and help Gretel as one bonkers story crashes into the next. 


In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre have teamed up with intoBodmin and FEAST to deliver a weekly episodic audio play that can be enjoyed in self-isolation. Each week we'll bring you a new episode in our anarchic musical adaptation of some of the most famous fairy-tales of all time. 

After each episode you, the listeners, will be able to input into how the tale unfolds. In doing so the story will develop and unfold as a direct response to our listeners. In these times when social interaction is limited for so many of us, we wanted to create something that gave audiences that same participatory and interactive feeling that comes with live theatre. ​ 

New episodes will be released every Friday at 7pm, afterwards there will be a 24 hour window to take part in that week's poll which will be just below. We'll also being running some competitions and other fun treats in conjunction so be sure to stay tuned!

Here's Your Chance To Take Part

After each episode we're asking you, our listeners, to input into how the story unfolds. This week we want to ask you for...

"If you were to go on a spending spree what is the first thing you would buy?"

With an unlimited amount of cash and the world being your oyster what is the first thing you would buy on a mad spending spree. It can be as abstract as you like!
