Book Now  Behind The Scenes  Access

Deep in the forest lives Jub, a magical girl with six fingers on each hand. Her job is to guard the Happy Endings to stories and fairytales. But one day an otherworldly Witch steals them, and at bedtime the stories are destroyed…

Goldilocks changed the locks on the cottage of the three bears… Cinderella’s foot is now too big for the glass slipper… Little Red Riding Hood is gobbled up by the wolf… and Pinocchio’s nose never stops growing!

As the Witch starts a monstrous fire with her stolen Happy Endings it is up to Jub to rewrite them and let children dream of new and surprising endings.

Full of energy, emotion and visual magic this family show is one to watch.

Original score composed by Murray Gold, with set design by Neil Murray and narrated by Joanna Lumley.
