This one-act condensation of the original three-act dramatization by I.E. Clark retains the fright, the fun and the fantasy of the fairy tale written in Germany in the very early 1800's by the Brothers Grimm. Also, it gives members of your audience an opportunity to participate—they'll love it. It may be done with or without music. This shortened version was made in response to requests for a version of Hansel and Gretel short enough for use in one-act play contests, workshops, classroom demonstrations, club meetings and other situations in which the full-length play could not be used. It is also suitable for showing to very young children who find it difficult to sit through a long play. Like the long version, this cutting provides the opportunity to include European folk dances and folk songs, giving your presentation the added value of acquainting your audiences with these important aspects of our American melting-pot heritage. The dances and songs may be minimized—or eliminated entirely, leaving a straight fairy-tale play.
