Hansel and Gretel June 1-2 at 7:30 PM
June 3 at 2:00 PM

When Hansel and Gretel wander into the forest, they encounter some marvelous folk – an arrogant troll who fiercely guards his bridge, a talking owl, a forest sprite, and two hobgoblins in the service of the Gingerbread Witch. Kidnapped by the witch, Hansel is locked in a cage and fed nothing but fudge and cake, but can Gretel outsmart the witch and free the lost children who have been turned into cookies?
