Hansel and Gretel are coming to town! April 28th, 2:00PM Nathan Hale Ray High School

The Friends of EHFPL and the Friends of the Rathbun Library are excited to sponsor another wonderful show presented by Tanglewood Marionettes of Ware Ma. If you attended last year’s presentation of the “Dragon King” performance you know what amazing work they do.

Hansel and Gretel is based on the classic fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, and features melodies from the Humperdinck opera. The colorful set is in the shape of a giant story book; as the pages turn each new and exciting scene is revealed. All the staging, scenery, and marionettes are handcrafted by Tanglewood Marionettes and together represent over a year of construction time.

This performance is suitable for all ages and young and old alike will be charmed by this show. Tickets are available at the door and will be $5.00 each with a max of $20 for a family. Save the date and come join us for a magical afternoon!
