"Hansel and Gretel" by the Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center
We are pleased to announce KHSPAC’s Fall production of Hansel & Gretel!
Hansel and Gretel, the classic Brother's Grimm fairy tale, tells the story of a clever brother and sister and what their father and step-mother choose to do when their family falls on hard times. The family is so poor that the step-mother convinces her husband that it will be better off for everyone if the children are left in the woods. Hansel and Gretel, overhearing this plan, hatch a strategy of their own to return home, but eventually they are lost in the woods and they encounter an evil witch in a tempting gingerbread house. Can Hansel and Gretel escape the evil witch's clutches and return home again?
