Hansel and Gretel

January 2005
Written by
Judy Shone
Directed by
Linda Mayes
Music by
Peter Frost


In this traditional panto we follow the story of two children, Hansel and Gretel, who go off in search of something to eat after a famine caused their village to go short of food.

It's not long before villianry in the form of the Witch appears promising sweets and good things to eat but she's a lot more in mind than feeding children-with feeding on children more in mind! Boo!

Can the good Wood fairy save the children and provide a happy ending?

  Publicity Photos

fairy, Mayor and the Prince are in confident mood. The whole cast unite for a group photo. The Mayor gets the brush off. Gloria Kindly and her Gnashers.
Gloria's multi-coloured hair needs a good brush. Hansel poses for the camera. Goodness me Mayor what a large medal you have... Tommy Tucker is not quite ready.
