Tues 24 Oct, Guildhall Theatre family
As one of the great European fairy tales ‘Hansel and Gretel’ is as relevant today as it was for previous generations. It tells the story of two children, a brother and a sister, who support each other and survive foolish parents, a dark wood, a gingerbread house and a wicked witch. By setting an example to the adults, the children bring about a joyful reunion and a happy ending. During the light hearted half hour workshop some children are chosen and rehearsed into parts while the rest of the audience is taught three chorus songs. During the interval the actors and children are costumed and the show, lasting 1 hour, runs seamlessly with everyone taking part as rehearsed.
