    Hansel & Gretel may live with loving, caring parents but there is no food and the children are starving. They can’t even afford to burn their wood for warmth; no it must be saved and sold in hopes of buying food. Watching her children being raked by hunger is devastating Mother. She begs Father to take them away, with the last piece of bread in their house their only hope. Seeing this as a great game to distract them, they sing and dance and leave a trail of crumbs through the forest. Of course, the birds devour the crumbs and the children have no way of finding their way home. Sent by a bird to a glorious house made of every delicious thing, they dive in, eating everything they can get their hands on. This is just what the Witch was hoping for – now the delectable children are trapped! The children have a few tricks of their own, however, and eventually use the Witch’s gluttony to break free. Full of song, dance, laughter, and just a pinch of good-natured scariness, this fairy tale classic is sure to satisfy the entire family.
