Written and directed by Jill Machin, audiences will be reacquainted with Prince Rupert, who was last seen not getting the girl in the group’s 2015 show Hansel and Gretel.

He will be joined by a bumbling dame, scheming villain, a beautiful damsel in distress and a rather unusual fairy.

But will it be a fairytale ending in the land of Happy Ever After or will the baddie triumph with his evil plot?

Director Jill Machin said: “We have got a lot of young people this time, some of them are taking on leading parts for the first time.”
