THERE is just one chance to see The Little Match Girl in Dorset this festive season.

After a sell-out tour of the south west and Midlands in 2017, international theatre company The Last Baguette head to Corfe Castle on December 15 to perform their touching, madcap and heart-warming family Christmas show.

In London one Christmas Eve, the snow is falling and a little girl is struggling fiercely through the cold. In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match; the flames blaze to life, and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. Follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets. Entering the tumultuous world of her imagination, we meet talking turkeys, dancing rats and Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree!

“It is a wonderful story” says director Susana Alcantud from Spain, “it goes right to the heart of what Christmas means.”

Written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award, The Last Baguette use visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale in this magic, humorous and poignant family show.

Suitable for ages 4+, see The Little Match Girl’ at Corfe Castle Village Hall at 2pm on Saturday December 15. Call 07590 352219 for tickets. Further information and ticket can also be found at
