Many parents have requested the English production of Gretel & Hansel. We have heard you, and we are thrilled to announce that Gretel & Hansel will be performed in English during the school September holidays (4 to 8 September). There are two performances daily: 10.00 am and 2.00pm.
Gretel & Hansel
Gretel’s life is turned upside down when her new brother Hansel arrives. He gets all the attention, the cuddles and the kisses and poor Gretel is told to ‘grow up’ and remember that she’s ‘a big girl now’! But Gretel doesn’t want to be big! And she doesn’t want the annoying little brother who’s too small to play.
When Mother and Father take the children to the forest, Gretel has a chance to get rid of the little brother once and for all. But the forest is full of danger and Gretel will have to learn to get along with Hansel if they are both going to survive the adventure.
Based on the well-loved Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale, Gretel & Hansel is a heartfelt, humorous and exciting tale about sibling rivalry, family love, courage and understanding what it means to be a big sister! The two children become both characters and storytellers as they bring audiences on a thrilling and imaginative journey. Gretel & Hansel will help encourage children to work together, appreciate their siblings and understand the importance of family love.
First staged in 2019, this reimagined storytelling adapted from the well-loved fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm highlights the importance of sibling relationship amidst the rivalry.
Here are what some of the parents have to say about the production:
"The presentation was engaging and fast-paced for the children. The content was good as it provided a talking point to speak to the children about family values. As an adult, I was amazed at the way the two actors managed to pull off the whole story with multiple roles, all by themselves."
"The show is highly entertaining and share the importance of sibling relationship."
"Very entertaining for both kids and adults. Very intelligent style of narration that is clear and humorous."
