Grim fairytale reworked for children’s Easter treat
LP CREATIVES are bringing their new family theatre show Hansel and Gretel to the Kenton Theatre during the Easter holidays, on Thursday, April 17 at 11am and 2.30pm.
The show stars Margi Clarke as the wicked stepmother. Liverpool actress Margi has had a long career in TV and film, but is probably best known for her role as Tyrone Dobbs’ hard-up mum Jackie in Coronation Street.
The show also stars JezO as Hansel. JezO has been on CBBC shows like The Slammer and appeared at the Kenton Theatre recently with his father in the magician double act show WOW! This Show is Magic.
Jessica Hathaway, who has toured with Channel 5’s Milkshake and Tom Beard will also join Margi Clarke and JezO on stage to play Gretel and the wandering and wondering Minstrel.
A fun and light-hearted family show, based on the classic 19th century Brothers Grimm fairytale, Hansel and Gretel is the story of a brother and sister whose happy woodland life is interrupted by an unwelcome visitor.
