In this twist on the classic fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel are actually "Hank and Gertie," two poor children from the hills of Appalachia

When a witch moves in to town and puts their parents under a spell, these intrepid siblings must outsmart and defeat her

This musical version of the story is set to a beautiful bluegrass score (Score available On Hire)

Hansel and Gretel was originally produced by the celebrated and critically-acclaimed Manhattan Children's Theatre


"Hansel and Gretel may not be the one the Brothers Grimm envisioned, but it works better as children's theatre" ~ Off-Off Broadway Review

"(The) bluegrass score, filled with energetic fiddling and earnest ballads, also leavens the proceedings. But it never seems out of place. What could be better than country music for a tale of backwoods hope and betrayal" ~ The New York Times
