Rapunzel, Hertford Theatre, Mon 11 Dec – Mon 1 Jan 2018

I’ve just been to Rapunzel at Hertford Theatre and I loved it. Great storytelling, wonderful music and audience participation galore. The panto has been written and produced by Hertford Theatre’s director Rhys Thomas and it’s a wonderful and joyous show.
