Hansel & Gretel This is a pantomime version of the well-known fairy tale written by the Brothers Grimm. It has all the elements needed for a fun-filled family show with gags, songs and barrels of laughter. Along with the Principal Boy and Girl, the show has a Dame, an evil witch and her inept assistant, a comedy group of Wandering Minstrels and a troupe of Fairies.


Plot Summary When Jacob the woodcutter and his wife Dorothea fall on hard times and agree to let the Fairies look after Hansel and Gretel it is the start of a great adventure. Grotaboggatt the evil witch captures the children and imprisons them. Fate seems to have dealt them a terrible injustice until Argan a handsome stranger agrees to rescue them. Together with a group of Wandering Minstrels who have fallen on hard times and a trio of Fairies they set off on a perilous journey to the Witch's house in the hope of finding Hansel and Gretel.
