Whittier College News Release
For Immediate Release - February 22, 1999
WHAT: A staged production of "Hansel and Gretel"
As the story goes, Hansel and Gretel, the children of a poor family, are sent into the forest to gather berries for the family╣s dinner. While in the forest, they encounter a house made of candy. Not being able to resist it, they enter to find an evil witch who has wicked plans for them both. Eventually, the children outsmart the witch and are happily reunited with their forlorn parents.
This cautionary children's play will include a professional cast in authentic costumes and stage setting. Although it will delight children and parents alike, it is not recommended for children under four.
