Hansel and Gretel
by Colin Wakefield and Kate Edgar
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays
3M 3F

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

The show can be performed by a cast of up to 12, but the original production was staged with a cast of 6 actors (3M, 3F)
