In this tale of blended families’ gone horribly wrong, Hansel and Gretel try to outwit their mean stepmother, when she abandons them in the forest, but their hungry tummies land them in big trouble.
Hansel & Gretel need all the help they can get to escape from the wicked witch with a taste for pudgy boys and find their way home!
A cautionary tale of the dangers of too many sweets!
KidzStuff has produced many successful plays written by the talented New Zealand writer Carl Nixon, including The Frog Prince and The Owl and the Pussy Cat (2004) and A Dragon of an Ordinary Family (2006).
