The A.R.T. /MXAT Institute for Advanced Theater Training Present HANSEL AND GRETEL, 12/15-1/6
Following last season's sold-out holiday hit The Snow Queen, the A.R.T. Institute, in association with the Loeb Drama Center, brings another classic children's story to life - Hansel and Gretel - an adaptation of the Brother Grimm's fairytale, directed by Allegra Libonati,. Performances will be held at the Loeb Drama Center, in the Experimental Theater December 5 - January 6, 2013.
Hansel and Gretel is the tale of two brave and hungry siblings who set off on an adventure to the gingerbread house of their dreams. Along the way they find a friendly duck, deceptive birds, and a funny but dangerous witch who lives with her candy kids. Hansel and Gretel must work together to make it through the woods, overcome the sweet traps of the witch, and discover what it takes to create a home.
The production is brought to life with the aid of original masks, puppets, and songs. At every turn the audience, deemed "Members of Hansel and Gretel's Ultra Adventure Club," must help Hansel and Gretel choose the right path back home.
Graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training star in this energetic and interactive re-telling, sure to be a sweet holiday treat for the whole family.
