Sweet tale on show until November
October 22, 2013 by Lisa
Having got underway last weekend, a classic fairy tale is now being presented in the area for children between the ages of five and twelve. No doubt poster printing has been among the recent methods used to make people aware of this performance of the Brothers Grimm tale.
This production is considered a junior musical and is being directed by Gracie Arviza and Patty Quiroz. For those who do not know the story, Hansel and Gretel are sent into the woods to deliver a special package to their grandmother and, along the way, they meet some interesting and strange characters, including two hobgoblins, a forest sprite, a temperamental troll that stands guard over a small wooden bridge
Another key character is an evil, if amusing, witch who locks Hansel in a big cage and feeds him too much cake, and it is left to Gretel to outwit the witch. Those who remember this tale from childhood will no doubt enjoy this adaptation as it is brought back to life on stage.
Tickets for this event cost $12 general admission, while seniors and students can claim a $2 discount. The Story of Hansel and Gretel will be on stage every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until November 9 at 2:30 pm at the Chino Community Theatre located at 13123 Seventh Street in Chino, California, just a short drive from Norco. To find out more about this production, or to purchase tickets, please visit the Chino Community Theatre website or call its box office.
