About this event

Poor Polly Buckwheat, the Miller’s daughter, is in a bit of a pickle!  If she doesn’t turn a roomful of straw into gold by morning, the greedy King will turn a bit nasty.  But should she accept the kind help of an eccentric dwarf who mysteriously appears in her prison cell? 

Of all the fairytale characters, Rumpelstiltskin has got to be the most mixed up.  He is helpful yet demanding; secretive yet nosy; short yet owning a name as long as his beard.  Not surprisingly, this story of transformation will make you laugh and gasp at the same time!

Using its trademark puppets, music, storytelling and transforming sets, Widdershins aims to create gold on stage with this new version of the Grimm’s classic tale.

Please note in the Watermans' Children's brochure this show was formerly known as Rumpelstiltskin And The Wheel of Fortune. The theatre company have changed the name of the show since the brochure was printed but it is the same production.
