Hansel and Gretel
A.R.T. Institute Season
December 15, 2012 to January 6, 2013

In the tradition of last season’s sold-out holiday hit The Snow Queen, the A.R.T. brings another classic children’s story to life—this time, the Brothers Grimm tale of a brother, a sister, a breadcrumb trail, and a suspicious gingerbread house in the woods. Graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training star in this energetic and interactive re-telling, sure to be a sweet holiday treat for the whole family.
