Children’s theatre to provide new look at ‘Hansel & Gretel’

Extra! Extra! Big news from the Wildwood! The mystery is solved! Hansel and Gretel return safely from their perilous adventure deep in the woods, and bring with them the age-old secret of the Wildwood Witch!

Don’t miss a moment as the truth is revealed. It’s amazing. It’s shocking. And, it’s very, very funny!

Get a new look at a classic story this Saturday, June 30, when the Missoula Children’s Theatre — featuring area young people — presents an original musical adaptation of Hansel & Gretel.

Some 41 area youth auditioned Monday for parts and began rehearsals for the production. Rehearsals will continue throughout the week with their MCT directors Morgan Meadows of Charlottesville, VA, and Christina Jundt of Atlanta, GA.

Hansel & Gretel will be presented Saturday at 3 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. in the Boone Central Gym at Albion. Those who attend the 3 p.m. performance do not have to pay again to attend the 7 p.m. performance.
