HANSEL & GRETEL Plays Brooklyn's Puppetworks, 9/8-12/16

Puppetworks has announced the fall presentation in its Brooklyn theatre: a marionette presentation of "Hansel & Gretel," based on the story published in 1853 by The Brothers Grimm.

Adapted into a gentler version by Puppetworks' artistic director Nicolas Coppola, "Hansel & Gretel" tells the story of two beloved children lost in the wood after a bird eats their breadcrumb trail, and their adventure with Rosina Sweettooth, a silly witch who tries to turn them into gingerbread, only to wind up as a cookie herself.

Puppetworks' production is accompanied by children's folk songs from Humperdinck's famous opera.

"Hansel & Gretel" is recommended for ages 3 and up and will perform on Saturdays and Sundays, September 8 through December 16, 2012, including Columbus Day, October 8, and Veteran's Day, November 12 at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Puppetworks is located at Park Slope, 338 Sixth Avenue (at 4th Street) in Brooklyn, NY.

Admission is $8 for children, $9 for adults and $7 per person in groups of 20 or more. For reservations (suggested), call (718) 965-3391 or visit www.puppetworks.org.
