The Little Match Girl, a warming tale for winter by The Last Baguette theatre company
A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s traditional tale.
Friday 15th December, 6.30pm – Warminster Library
International theatre company The Last Baguette, based at Pound Arts in Corsham, are bringing this Christmas classic to Warminster Library. The Little Match Girl is a touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show for all the family.
The show is touring from the 1st to the 24th of December to theatres, arts centres, village hall and libraries. In this magic, humorous and poignant show, The Last Baguette use visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale. The script is written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award.
The Last Baguette make fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy. Their work is entertaining, accessible and eccentric. In the show we follow Alice, a match seller in Victorian London. We meet her in the morning and follow her throughout her day, as she encounters funny and zany characters on the vibrant city streets. When Alice is cold, she strikes a match and the stage transforms. We enter the fantastic world of Alice’s imagination, with talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.
“A fun-filled family show with humour and love… It’s a must-see for people of any age” Grace Spencer, Air in G on What’s the Matter?
