This musical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s much-loved fairy tale by Gillian Juckes and Rick Juckes is a timeless classic, perfect for adults and children alike and deals with universal issues such as the struggle between good and evil.

Both Gillian and Rick have many years’ experience of writing drama, music and songs for theatre, TV and radio.

Gillian recently co-wrote with Jimmy McGovern the BBC1 drama, Care with Alison Steadman and Sheridan Smith.
