The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep is proud to present one of the most famous Brothers Grimm classic tales of all time – Hansel and Gretel. The play, adapted by Joe and Cody Powers and directed by Matt Thompson and Chelsea Whitmore, will run March 27, 28, 29, 2008 at 7 p.m. and March 29 & 30 at 2 p.m. There will also be school matinees on March 28, 2008 at 10 a.m.

Hansel and Gretel are the children of a poor wood cutter. Fearing starvation, the wood cutter's wife convinces him to lead the children into the forest and abandon them there. Lost in the forest, they find a house made of bread with sugar windows, which they begin to eat. The old woman who lives there invites them in for a special feast. Join us to see what unfolds in this splendid fairy tale. .North Coast Rep invites their audiences to experience the enchantment of this timeless story. 

 “There are many versions of Hansel and Gretel to be seen, read and heard.  In the adapting of this story Cody and I tried to stick as closely to the Grimm’s Brother story as possible. To keep the magic of the original story while making it fun, fresh, and palatable to today’s audiences and the sensibilities of young theatre goers.”  It was a pleasure to work with my son on this project thus giving it a dual perspective: today’s youth and yesterday’s child.” – Joe Powers
