Hansel and Gretel sing their way onto the stage
0530-GO-Gretel-Hansel-Witch
Hansel and Gretel, played by Cash Laws and Christie Taylor, meet a witch, played by Trey Smagur, in the musical adaptation of the children’s fable. “Hansel and Gretel” will be on stage this weekend at the Habersham Community Theater.

Based on the well-known fairy tale by the brothers Grimm, “Hansel and Gretel” has morphed into a musical to entertain locals May 30-31 and June 1-2, at Habersham Community Theater in Clarkesville.

The story of “Hansel and Gretel” focuses on two poor children (played by Cash Laws and Christie Taylor) lost in the forest and watched over by angels (portrayed by dancers from Premiere Dance Academy in Cornelia). The children are almost captured by a witch (played by Trey Smagur), but are happily united with their parents (played by Jane Marie Price and Drew Townsend). The play ends with the moral that wickedness is punished and everyone praises God.

Evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children and full-time students. Call 706-839-1315 for reservations.
