Entertaining, Fine cast, Bare, Curious twist

See it if you have kids to bring for a simple (mini) theater experience. The story is similiar yet different in a fun and updated holiday version.

Don't see it if you expect big production value. This is more like an introductory theater but its smal venue makes it cozy & more personal esp to the kids.

Funny, Quirky

See it if Bring a child with you. They will enjoy it. The Step Mother character was very funny.

Don't see it if you expect a Broadway style show. Minimal set & costumes.

On Stage Blog
November 10th, 2018

“The show seems to revolve less around the characters of Hansel and Gretel, and more around their evil stepmother, who is a Latina woman...It seems to perpetrate some of the worst stereotypes surrounding the Hispanic community – particularly Hispanic women...Then, there’s the rest of the show, which is mediocre at best...In an adaptation where a large chunk of the 'humor' is reliant on a racially insensitive stereotype, performances alone are not enough to save the production.”
