    Hex Tickets

    A dark and magical fairytale musical

    Celebrate Christmas at the National Theatre with a vividly imaginative retelling of Sleeping Beauty, as new musical Hex returns to the South Bank venue this winter.

    Travel deep into the woods, where a lonely fairy wishes for someone to bless. Her dream comes true when she is summoned to the palace to help the princess sleep… but it quickly turns into a nightmare, with a curse placed on the land. Frantic to make everything right, the fairy embarks on a hundred year journey to bring about a happily ever after.

    Rufus Norris (Small Island; wonder.land) directs this spellbinding new musical based on classic fairytales, developed from his and Katrina Lindsay’s original concept. The Hex musical features music by Jim Fortune, a book by Tanya Ronder, lyrics by Norris, designs by Katrina Lindsay and choreography by Jade Hackett.

    Casting for Hex in London is to be confirmed.

    This colourful new show is full of heart, magic and mischief, making Hex musical tickets the perfect gift this festive season!

    Magnificent show, outstanding voices, nice mix of actors, clever set, fascinating storyline (the details in the programme explain why some things happen). Thought provoking and such a shame more people couldn’t see it, we would go again.

    I didn’t quite know what to expect, but was. Really knocked out by this production! There was a lovely combination of musical styles from ragtime to pop, to quite dissonant harmonies. The characters were well defined and superbly brought to life by the very talented cast. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend it!

    An unusual story of sleeping beauty, very funny in parts and also sad in parts, I really enjoyed it. Acting was great and some amazing songs were sung perfectly. Set was colourful and put together well.

    I understand Hex has mixed reviews in its first incarnation, but we loved it (myself and 13 yr old daughter). It wasn't perfect, but it was a bit dark, with quite a few jokes and some lovely songs. Admittedly the songs were very good (two in particular), and had so much potential to be great but just missed the mark by a smidge. Visually it was wonderful and the acting was great. The main characters of the Low Fairy and the Queen Troll were such amazing singers, I would go and see a show just if I knew the girl playing the fairy was in it! it's suitable for children, but they may not be suitable for it, if that makes sense. The photo doesn't do the view justice, you are a lot closer than it looks.

    Fantastic show. Beautiful and very unique. However the music isn’t as catchy as other musicals - no ear worms in this show.
