Hansel and Gretel archiveGrimm's fairytale of a brother and sister who get lost in the woods. This year, the Lyric Theatre returns to a well-known and much-loved traditional fairy tale, Hansel + Grettel. Paul Boyd's musical of Hansel + Grettel has been staged in eight professional productions since it premiered in 1997 and has consistently been one of his most successful productions. The Lyric Theatre's 1999 version broke box office records and remains the most commercially successful musical production ever staged in the Lyric's long history, achieving 98% ticket sales over an extended nine week run. Hansel + Grettel is a full-length musical that tells the story of two clever children, two desperate parents, and an ill-advised trip into the woods where the children meet a bird, a frog and a witch with a most unusual taste in home decor. The show is performed by a multi-roleplaying cast of six and features the songs 'A World Without Children' and 'The Wish Song' as well as Hansel + Grettel's ballad 'Lost and Alone', Fats the Frog's 'The Greens', and the Witch's hysterical show-stopper 'Children's Portions' - all rounded off with Paul Boyd's most popular and exciting mega-mix finale! Running time: approx 90mins including interval.
