    In a story-book world, young Hansel and Gretel get lost in the woods, chancing upon an enchanted cottage made of sweets, and an old woman who wants to bring them both to a very sticky end. This timeless tale of the perils of a sweet tooth is charmingly brought to life by Humperdinck's score, which is simultaneously highly Romantic and touchingly naive - an unlikely combination, perhaps, but one which has proved a perennial favourite since its premier in 1893. This production is being double cast to accommodate four performances over three days, and in order to involve as many students as possible; an ambitious education project will also involve young people in the local community. A great favourite with children and adults alike for over a century, and ideally suited to student voices, 'Hansel and Gretel' promises to be a thoroughly magical production.
