The Gingerbread Man
A cheeky Gingerbread Man causes all kinds of problems for the farmers and animals. No one can catch him, until he meets a sly and cunning fox…
The story also has ideas for developing oracy through rhyme and repetition. In particular, this piece also includes subjects such as size and shape, generosity, giving and sharing.

The Elves and The Shoemaker
This re-telling of the old favourite contains all the elements of Intext’s previous shows. Vivid storytelling, the use of simple props to stimulate the children’s imagination, and audience participation are all included here.
The story also brings together characters from other famous traditional fairytales and has good links to KS1 literacy. It uses speaking and listening, simple rhymes and repeated phrases. In addition to this, the piece looks at subjects such as size and shape, generosity, helping and sharing.

Rapunzel
Meet a clever princess, a clumsy prince, and a wicked witch who can’t stand to see anyone else having fun.
Princess Rapunzel has never EVER had her hair cut. Even though she is 16 and about to have a birthday party. But in the middle of the celebrations, the jealous witch spoils all of the fun for everyone…including Rapunzel and her hair!

With a flash of  bright light the witch turned the bright sky

Into thick pouring rain, so you’d never be dry.

She heard everyone laughing, she saw the girl smile

(For she could see clearly, for over a mile.)

Her fingers went click, they all started to cry.

Learn how Rapunzel is trapped at the top of a tall tower, and how she manages to escape and  rescue the prince in this new retelling of the favourite fairytale.
