Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel put on by the Junior Service League of Concord.

This past week I had the privilege to attend the play Hansel and Gretel but on by the JSL of Concord.  They play and performers did an amazing job bringing this age-old fable to life.  With a small cast and crew, I was amazed at what they pulled off.  The props were simplistically beautiful.  With each set change we felt transformed into the home in the village or to the witches house in the deep woods.  It was a lovely rendition of a classic.  The performers had us on the edge of our seats right till the end.  I think the highlight for my kids were on the way out where the cast was lined up engaging with the students.  I felt very welcomed and entertained.  Thank you Junior Service League for another wonderful performance.

    I was “Gretel” and I want to thank you for bringing kids to the play, and for posting this. It brings us all such joy to give local children a live theater experience, and we also all love seeing them as they leave, getting high-fives and the occasional hug. 💜
