The Musicians of Bremen

Fireside Folktales Performance
Coming soon…

After a lifetime of hard work, four loyal old animals are each in danger of being put to death or sold by their unkind masters, who only valued them for the service they could offer while young and strong. Banding together, they decide to run away and head to the town of Bremen, where they hope to become musicians and sing – rather than slave – for their supper. Making their way through the deep, dark forest at night, however, they spy a glimmering light through the trees and another rather more dangerous, but ultimately rewarding, option presents itself…

  • This performance runs for around 30 minutes.
  • It is recommended for ages 4 and up.
  • It includes mild staged fighting and therefore may suit a slightly older audience than Aesop’s Fables.
  • It can be performed in the open air, in our own 8m Bell Tent, or indoors in a large enough space.
  • It would work particularly well at children’s birthday parties or as the entertainment for children at grown-up events, such as village fetes, corporate parties, weddings or other private celebrations. It will also appeal to animal lovers and anyone interested in European myths and fairytales!
