"Hansel and Gretel" for the holidays!

There is nothing more delicious than Engelbert Humperdinck’s Gingerbread Witch!

Long ago in 1893 Adelheid H. Wette asked her brother Engelbert Humperdinck to write some music for a group of verses she had written. The verses were based on the story by another family, the Brothers Grimm, who published a book of German fairy tales. What began as fun for both families has become famous to audiences around the world as a holiday theatrical treat. Today “Hansel and Gretel” continues to be a delicious surprise.

Two children alone in the house. Two children supposed to do their chores. Two children too hungry to work. Two children who would rather have fun. Two children named Hansel and Gretel.

Puppeteer and vocalist Jerry Bickel sings selections from the Humperdinck score live as he presents his telling of the tale. More puppeteer than fancy singer…you might forget the original was ever an operetta, but you will never forget the fun of a one man, two hand, seven puppet marionette tale well sung!
