Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel $12.99

Colin Wakefield and Kate Edgar

Published by Josef Weinberger

3 Male 3 Female

Adapted from the Brothers' Grimm tale, Colin Wakefield and Kate Edgar magically bring the enchanted forest to life with an evocative score, colourful costumes and memorable characters

Including the sinister witch who lives in a house made of gingerbread and candy!

This beloved children's classic, devised for a company of actor/musicians but easily played by off-stage musicians instead, amazes and delights as Gretel must outwit the witch who has taken Hansel prisoner and prepares to eat him!

Told with all the hallmarks of traditional pantomimes in this fantastic adventure to delight all ages

REVIEWS

"A magical little fairy tale with a cast so sparkling with merriment that they should be bottled and given away as surprises to startled boys and girls on snowy Christmas mornings. The storybook picture set, the catchy songs and the dance and extempore flourishes will engross eager minds that love the magic of stories in living theatres" ~ stagecorner.com
