Hansel and Gretel: An Original Ballet

This summer we will be producing Hansel and Gretel: An Original Ballet with 9-18 year olds. It is audition only, meaning students must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production.  

About Hansel and Gretel: An Original Ballet

Hansel and Gretel, brother and sister, are left stranded in a forest where they encounter a witch residing in a house made of bread, cake, and sugar. The witch, with sinister plans to eat them, schemes to fatten up Hansel. Through quick thinking and bravery, Gretel outwits the witch by pushing her into the oven, saving her brother and securing the witch’s treasure before fleeing to safety.


This production is audition only, meaning students must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production. 

  • Auditions will be Tuesday, June 18 from 6:00-7:30 pm. If your child is also auditioning to be a member of Relevé Dance Company, the auditions are the same evening. Students only auditioning for Hansel and Gretel will likely be released prior to 7:30 pm
