Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel is here! Rehearsals have started on our wonderful new show, based on Humperdinck’s much loved opera in our own arrangement and with a brand new libretto. Set in the magical forest where anything can happen, this beautiful, funny, sometimes dark story is suitable for all ages. Performances will take place 28 – 29 March in the Storey’s Field Centre.
