Hansel and Gretel is a play that everybody can have fun with. Your audiences will love their opportunity to participate. Adults or children can play the title roles, making the play ideal for community, university, high school or elementary theatre. This three-act version of Hansel and Gretel was commissioned and premiered by the famed Casa Mañana Playhouse in Fort Worth, Texas. It may be presented with or without music; a one-act version was added later by popular demand. It is an audience-participation play in which every child is invited to help Hansel and Gretel as they wander through the aisles trying to save themselves. This dramatization not only captures the fright, the fun and the fantasy of the fairy tale written in Germany in the very early 1800s by the Brothers Grimm, but also retains the German flavor of the tale. European folk dances and folk songs may be used. The dances and songs may also be minimized or eliminated entirely, leaving a straight fairy tale play.
