Hansel & Gretel Puppet Show

The production is a fully staged re-telling of a well known story written by the Brothers Grimm. Traditional marionette puppets perform in front of magical scenery which changes before your eyes. Can two innocent children survive when left alone in the forest? Hansel is quite smart, but it takes his sister Gretel to save the day. The show takes you on a journey into the woods, where the children are led by a magic bird to a house made of sweets.
