Hansel & Gretel on a magical journey through the woods to the house of sweets and gingerbread!
Having been taken to the woods by their father and stepmother, Hansel and Gretel soon get lost amongst the trees and set out on their own adventure. Along the way they meet a host of weird and wonderful creatures, including Rupert the Raven, Soren the Hedgehog, Bille the mouse and a couple of cheeky elves! When the children start get hungry, they go on a woodland forage of song and dance, and come upon a magical house of cake and candy, with window panes of clear sugar. Of course, Hansel and Gretel are lured by this wonderful candy cottage and start to snack on the delicious roof and the delectable walls…. but all is not what it seems in this magical forest… Lurking within the house is an evil witch who cannot wait to tuck into the children as a tasty treat! Will the children escape from her wickedness? And will they ever find their way home to their own safe little cottage of bricks and mortar?
Packed with music, dancing, puppetry and of course audience participation, come along and boo the baddie, cheer the goodie and enjoy this Easter treat; we promise it will be lots of fun and downright delish!
