Hansel & Gretel

Hansel & Gretel

We are pleased to announce our Christmas show, Hansel & Gretel, a new festive version written by Ciaran McConville, who returns to the theatre following last year’s successful adaptation of Alice in Winterland, music and lyrics by Eamonn O'Dwyer and directed by Rosie Jones.


Life is good in the little town of Freiburg. Somehow it has escaped the Great Famine laying blight to its neighbours. It has the highest of walls, the most bountiful of harvests and holds the biggest of parties. And everyone loves the town's mayor.


When young Hansel and Gretel are caught passing food to the poor, they are as surprised as anyone to be rewarded with a trip to the far side of the forest. Little do they know of the gingerbread house that awaits them and the sweet old lady who controls their fate.


Battling magical beasts, enlisting a crew of fairy tale bandits and learning the secrets of their past, Hansel and Gretel must race to save their town from the Witch's Curse. And all in time for Christmas!


Featuring young actors from the Rose Youth Theatre alongside professional actors.
