Hansel and Gretel at the Heritage May 5, 6 & 7

Driftwood Theatre School’s all-youth cast is back with a musical fairy-tale mashup for all ages. “The (Almost) Totally True Story of Hansel and Gretel” offers a hilarious alternative spin on traditional storybook characters performed by 27 talented young actors (aged 7 to 15).

Criminal masterminds Hansel and Gretel are on the run from the law. An ogre plays Snow White. A fairy godmother is wreaking havoc with a broken wand and Girl Guide Goldilocks is out to win her leg-breaking badge.

“This is a witty, wonky play with universal appeal,” said director Ingrid Bilton. “Although this is the youngest cast we’ve ever worked with, the actors are talented beyond belief. Not only are they fearless on stage and bursting with character, but they know where the funny is.”

The play runs May 4, 5 & 6 at Heritage Playhouse. Adults $15. Youth $10. Tickets online at and at the Sechelt Visitor Centre, Laedeli, BlackBerry Shop and Giggle ‘n Bloom. More on Facebook and
