Song Excerpts:

THE STORY: A faithful reproduction of the classic tale. Hansel and Gretel are abandoned during a famine by their father, the woodcutter, under the evil influence of his wife, their stepmother.


But Hansel hears them plotting and together they lay a pebble trail and find their way back home. But the famine gets worse and their stepmother again persuades the woodcutter to abandon them.


This time, Hansel and Gretel lay a tail of breadcrumbs, but it is eaten by the birds and they take shelter with a strange old crone in a gingerbread house. The witch attempts to cook Hansel for dinner, but Gretel hurls her into the cauldron, as the woodcutter, distraught, returns and rescues them.


The musical also includes some optional sections to turn it into a great pantomime style production.
