Hansel & Gretel in Clemson

The Grimm Brothers’ story of Hansel and Gretel, as dramatized by Charlotte Chorpenning, has a poetic beauty designed to bring new value to a young audience. In this version, the treatment of the stepmother does not accent cruelty, and the evil witch is portrayed as a comedic character, teaching the story’s lesson through humor rather than fear. Clemson Area Youth Theatre’s production of Hansel & Gretel runs Fridays through Sundays, March 6th through 15th, at Clemson Little Theatre.
