Hansel & Gretel  

Hansel & Gretel $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
In this imaginative reworking of the children's classic, Hansel and Gretel stumble upon a colourful circus family but are tricked into following their new friends to the wicked witch's candy-covered lair. Hansel is given over to the witch in return for the imprisoned father of the circus family. But Gretel won't give in and free her brother in the same way. Helped by Orin the Faerie-King and the mysterious Monkey-boy, the children defeat the witch with a combination of kindness and courage.

In the fullness of time, I think Stuart Paterson's modern pantomimes may come to be seen as one of the outstanding legacies of Scottish Theatre -  Guardian

Stuart Paterson is the ‘master of children’s theatre’ (Scotsman). Christmas—in Scotland in particular—is never without several stagings of his plays, which include Hansel and Gretel and a Cinderella in which Buttons gets to marry Cinders. In January 2007, NHB published his adaptations of The Jungle Book and Kensuke’s Kingdom.
