Hansel & Gretel at Artisan Center Theater

13 May
From now through May 21, bring your kids to Artisan Center Theater to see a unique twist on the classic story of Hansel & Gretel!


When Hansel and his sister, Gretel, discover a gingerbread house in the forest, they are captured by a witch, who tries to fatten up Hansel and makes Gretel do all her work.  With Artie the Monkey’s help, the children defeat the witch and return home, never to be hungry again.

Showtimes are Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10 am.   Artisan Center Theater is located in Hurst at 418 E. Pipeline Road.  For tickets, click here.
