About this show

The Building Stage journeys into the woods, uncovering both the dark and absurd elements of this classic fairy tale about two children on their own, a house made of sweets, a murderous witch, and the perils of breadcrumbs. Adding to the fun are an expressionist oompah band, a 1960s pop crooner in lederhosen, and two guilt-stricken parents on a rescue mission. Performed in an immersive forest setting, Hänsel und Gretel is sure to melt the coldest of hearts on a long winter night.
