Hansel & Gretel

Hansel & Gretel

Cow Over Moon’s Hansel & Gretel is a modern twist of the classic tale. In our show the brother and sister duo, who have long relied on gadgets and technology, suddenly find themselves in a situation where they have to rely on their cunning and instinct instead.

Will they make it to the Enchanted Gingerbread House without an iPhone, and what will they do when they meet the witch?

Watch Hansel and Gretel discover the importance of teamwork and truly understand the meaning of the words family and home.

With dancing, singing, improvisation and audience participation Hansel & Gretel has something for everyone.

Join us this winter in Toronto and Mississauga for a show that is fun for the whole family!
