Hansel & Gretel

Citizens Theatre

A delicious festive treat for all the family this Christmas!

Abandoned in a deep forest with no way of finding their way home, Hansel and Gretel stumble upon an extraordinary house. Tired and hungry, the siblings are lured inside by a cruel witch who plots to devour them. Hansel and Gretel must use their combined wits to foil the witch’s evil plan and find their way home with the help of some unusual friends.

This Christmas experience a colourful forest adventure filled with suspense, laughter and some unexpected twists.  Hansel & Gretel captures all the splendour of the original tale with a generous pinch of Citz magic.

A new Christmas production from the talented creative team behind our five-star production of A Christmas Carol which captivated audiences in 2014. Directed by Artistic Director, Dominic Hill.
