Saturday November 25 & Sunday November 26 // Westfield Shopping Centre, Event Cinemas, Gympie & Hamilton Rd’s, Chermside

Fun for the whole family and a highly recommended introduction to live theatre from the best seat in the house. One of the folklore’s great villains in a deliciously wicked spin on a dark and devilish tale! Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. But money, as they say, can’t buy you everything.  This is the story of the ultimate price of greed, two people, once best friends, torn apart by a desire for things they cannot have.  The exquisitely mercurial Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting goblin whose first for vengeance may well bring him undone.
