Tickets for Rumpelstiltskin have come to the Southbank Centre just in time for Christmas!

The Brothers Grimm tale Rumpelstiltskin is nearly 4000 years old, but this Australian reimagining brings it firmly into 2018. A perfect holiday treat full of magic, music and laughter, this spectacular riot lands on the Southbank Centre with stunning costumes, sets and characters.

Wanting things that you can’t have has never ended well. Two people whose friendship was torn apart by their desires might have to pay the ultimate price for their greed.

Paul Capsis, Australian singer and Cabaret legend stars as the fiend with the frighteningly difficult name whose need for vengeance might just be his undoing. He joins the Windmill Theatre Company team who brought Pinnochio to life in the West End in 2016.

This riotous retelling of a classic fairytale will only be at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London’s Southbank Centre for 4 weeks, from 13 December to 6 January. If you’re looking for something a little different to do over the holiday Rumpelstiltskin is just the ticket!

Christmas is just around the corner, but luckily Rumpelstiltskin tickets are available now!

Great show, brilliant actors.

Darren Posey3rd January

Very strange interpretation of the Rumplestiltskin story. Appreciated the set design and lighting but found the story tiresome and the acting poor. Wasn’t clear if this was aimed at kids or adults, but all of us were bored through most of it.

Mr. George Buchanan3rd January

Wonderful show - original, funny and mesmerising

James Macdonald 3rd January

This was the worst show that I have ever seen. Superficial, silly and ridiculous do not even begin to describe it. The lead actor was very good but his lines were cringe worthy. Avoid this production.

A Heery3rd January

It was difficult to hear properly especially the songs as i don't know whether the music was too loud or the acoustics of the venue wasn't right but i couldn't make out the words people were singing. I liked the second half better as there was a bit more to it.

Olga Bunton1st January

It was very enjoyable, funny and colourful.

M. Dexter1st January

A far better alternative to the old traditional panto. Special effects were quite amazing. Loved by adults and children.

Christine Broadwell30th December

The music and the singing was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Had two deaf children with us who lost the plot sometimes (off stage sounds) but still had good time.

YAU30th December

This wasn't what I was expecting. Took my 10 year old girl to see this expecting something similar to the age old fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin. However, the story line was somewhat different though it did have some resemblance. Anyway, for the first 15 minutes I started wondering whether I could sit through the who 2 hours. But after giving it a bit of patience, the whole production was rather good, in fact, I would go as far as saying great. Without given any spoilers, the effects was simple but effective. A cast of only 6, it was incredibly entertaining with very good original music and songs. However, I couldn't stop thinking that a lot of children there would be wondering if the attended the correct play. Final words... approach it with an open mind and you are bound to enjoy it.

Shantell Williams30th December

Tickets are over priced for such a small and underwhelming production! Don’t go guys, it’s more like panto!

Erica Murphy29th December

Really very disappointed. Not what I was expecting.
