Working: A Musical

Hansel and Gretel: A Creole Tale

The Performing Arts at Bossier Parish Community College and the Cavalier Players announce their 29th annual original children’s show, Hansel and Gretel: A Creole Tale, adapted and by the founder of the BPCC Theatre Program, the late Professor Stephen W. Slaughter.

This musical fable for children of all ages offers a new spin on the traditional fairy tale of the young children’s encounter with a wicked witch in the woods who plans to eat them for supper. This version is told as a Louisiana Creole tale and set in the swamps of Louisiana. It features a host of Cajun animals and characters who present the story of the young siblings, each with a dangerous “sweet tooth.” Hansel and Gretel’s quick thinking and ingenuity are put to test as they learn life lessons about safety and obedience—all while avoiding being the main ingredient in the big pot of boiling-hot gumbo.

Make plans now for you and your children to meet Hansel and Gretel and all the others in this delightful musical show.

For children of all ages.
