As part of our Family Fun Days morning series, Payomet presents the Tanglewood Marionettes in Hansel and Gretel on Friday, July 12 at 10:00am.

Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of Hansel and Gretel is based on the classic fairytale by the Brothers Grimm, and features melodies from the Humperdinck opera. The colorful set is in the shape of a giant story book; as the pages turn, each new and exciting scene is revealed. All the staging, scenery, and marionettes are handcrafted by Tanglewood Marionettes, and together represent over a year of construction time.

The story itself is set in the mid-nineteenth century. As the tale unfolds, Hansel and Gretel must call upon their inner reserves and learn new methods to overcome the challenges they encounter while lost in the wood.

Hansel and Gretel is geared primarily toward children in Kindergarten through Grade 6.

The production is approximately 45 minutes in length, and includes a Puppetry Demonstration prior to the show, and a Question and Answer Session following the performance.

Founded in 1993 by Anne Ware and Peter Schaefer, Tanglewood Marionettes is a nationally touring marionette theater based in New England. Our repertoire consists primarily of classic tales performed by skilled puppeteers who have spent many years perfecting their art. We specialize in school assembly programs and have toured throughout the United States.

Ticket Price: $20*
