An original twist on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale. Christmas at the Citizens brings inventive storytelling accompanied by original live music in an intimate theatre where everyone can feel part of the story.
Hansel and Gretel are like any brother and sister. Cheeky and mischievous, they squabble with each other all day and live a happy life with their mother and father in the forest.
But their world is turned upside down when a dreadful famine strikes the land and an envious, twisted old witch plots to have their father all to herself. Abandoned in the forest, Hansel and Gretel must stop their quarrelling and work together to defeat the wicked witch ? and avoid being cooked for dinner!
Join Hansel and Gretel in a magical family show full of fun and suspense and beautiful songs. A new version by Alan McHugh.
Tickets: £10 ? £17
Tickets are available from the Citizens Box office on 0141 429 0022. or Book Online

Dave Anderson and David MacLennan collaborate on a twisted version of the classic children?s tale: The little-known story of a Pantomime Princess?s forbidden relationship with a Person of Shortness.
The other Dwarves ? Whiffy, Jakey, Junkey, Spikey, Fart and Stupid, ? are conveniently out of the cabin (budget issues) when Snow-White unburdens herself to Chookie, the Seventh Dwarf.
It turns out Snow White is dreading having to be rescued by a Prince: from what she knows of Princes, they?re spoilt brats who would make rubbish husbands. She is warming to the charms of the wee man, who loves to work - a relationship The Media have kept under wraps for decades ? nay, centuries.
Will Snow-White be rescued by a Handsome Prince? Killed by a Wicked Queen (is there any other kind?) or live happily ever after in a taboo relationship with the love of her life ? who may or may not be a Person of Shortness?
Book early to be sure of a ticket or get one on door on the day? but be sure to get to the front of the queue! Or at TicketWeb.
