Hansel and Gretel is an inventive retelling of the Grimms' classic tale. Students are given an exciting opportunity to play on stage using puppetry, percussive rhythms, twists in language, and unique characterizations. It's a play for young audiences that stretches the skills of the performers.
Gretel is afraid of many things, especially the woods. Hansel delights in teasing his little sister, but when they are left in the forest, he is determined to protect her.
They are taken in by a friendly witch, who lives in a magical candy house but who is not at all what she seems. The tables are turned and Gretel has to conquer her fears in order to save her brother.
