The show dates in December TBC
(These are big roles with lots to learn! For the casting of these characters, due to the size of
the roles, we would prefer using two strong 16+ years performers who can play younger.
However, we will also consider casting two teams of 14/15-year olds. We would look to
begin rehearsing with Hansel and Gretel in advance of the rest of the cast.)
The Three Storytellers – No specific playing age but must be 16+
Father – playing age 40+
Stepmother – playing age 30+
Old Witch – playing age old and ugly! Could be played by a male or female.
