Hansel & Gretel is a 45 minute long adaptation for children of Englebert Humperdinck's most well-known opera. This adaptation is sung entirely in English and will soon be touring the province, entertaining kids all over the province.
In order to do that, the entire production has to be portable. Have you ever tried stuffing an entire set, with costumes and props - AND singers - into a van?

So what exactly is going in that van? Well, we have some giant candy (actually made of styrofoam), some scary looking trees (actually made of real trees), lots of costumes and props.. and a lot of fun for all the kids who'll see the show!
