Youngstage is a series of plays for children performed primarily by adults (separate from Cherry Street Players). These are stories for the young and young-at-heart from well known fables to contemporary classics.
For its second, and final Youngstage performance of the 2012-2013 season, BHCT is pleased to offer one of the most lovable of folk tales, HANSEL AND GRETEL, by Madge Miller. Written with suspense and charm, this fairytale from the story by the Brothers Grimm, tells of Hansel and Gretel going into the forest to gather berries. Once inside the magical forest they quickly get lost. Guided by fairy music, they grope their way to an enchanted cottage made of gingerbread, sugar plums and lollipops. Here they are captured by the witch! But with the help of Trudi, the cat, and the Jack-in-the-box, they are able to outwit the witch, transform Trudi back to her rightful shape, release the forest fairy from imprisonment and return home to their loving father.
Performances will be held April 5-7, 2013.
