2017 - 2018 Season

Synetic Family Theater Presents: Hansel & Gretel

    Synetic Family Theater Presents:
    Hansel & Gretel
    December 1, 2017 >> December 23, 2017

    During the bustle of holiday crowds, Gretel tries to keep her brother, Hansel, out of trouble while their unengaged babysitter leaves Gretel to fend for them both. As Hansel embarks on his own wonder-filled exploration of his everyday surroundings, he and his sister fall into a magical realm that takes them far away from home. In this wordless production, the well-beloved Grimm fairy tale embraces the fantastical through the eyes of those who see the world through a different lens.

    The perfect Holiday outing for the young, and the young at heart, this wordless Family Theater production is recommended for all ages.

    Tickets are on sale now!
