(LEAMINGTON, ON) – The Bank Theatre has announced the production of 4th Wall Music’s Hansel and Gretel on Saturday, May 13 at 7:30pm, with the doors opening at 7:00pm. Theatre programming director Sharon Light is excited to be bringing the production to The Bank Theatre.
“We are thrilled to bring you this version of Hansel and Gretel featuring the some tremendously talented Windsor Essex children and actors and actresses,” Light said.
4th Wall Music’s version of the classic fairy tale comes to life featuring Abridged Opera and Kordazone Thespians and is directed by Tracey Atin. Inspired by the Grimm fairy tale, Engelbert Humperdinck’s take on Hansel and Gretel leaves out the breadcrumbs, but adds a Sandman, and a chorus of gingerbread cookie children to liven things up.
The talented cast includes mezzo-soprano Amelia Daigle (Hansel), soprano Kaitlyn Clifford (Gretel), soprano Christine Turingia (Mother), baritone Jake Flynn (Father), and mezzo-soprano Erin Dickau as the Witch.
Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased online, by calling the ticket hotline at 519-326-8805, or by purchasing in advance from Counter Effects and Wharram’s Jewellery in Leamington.
