The witch and her visitors.jpgTake a break from your holiday shopping and cookie baking for a high-energy re-telling of this well-known Brother Grimm's fairytale as presented by the A.R.T. Institute in Cambridge. "Hansel and Gretel" is the story of two brave and hungry siblings who set off on an adventure to the gingerbread house of their dreams. Along the way, they find a friendly duck, deceptive birds, and a funny but dangerous witch who lives with her candy kids. Hansel and Gretel must work together to make it through the woods, overcome the sweet traps of the witch, and discover what it takes to create a home. The production is brought to life with the aid of original masks, puppets and songs. At every turn the audience, deemed "Members of Handsel and Gretel's Ultra Adventure Club," must help Hansel and Gretel choose the right path back home. Graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training star in this energetic and interactive re-telling, directed by Allegra Libonati. Dec. 15 - 16, Dec. 20 - 23, Dec. 26 - 31, Jan. 3 - 6, 11 a.m. Dec. 26, 28, 31, 3 p.m. $15. Ages 3 and up. The Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle St., Cambridge.
