McKinney Performing Arts Center and Le Theatre de Marionette, an award-winning European-style marionette puppetry troupe, present “Hansel and Gretel” Feb. 22 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Recommended for families with children ages 3 and up, these performances will run for approximately one hour and include a brief introduction to the wonderfully magical world of marionette puppetry.
“Hansel and Gretel” follows the familiar siblings on their trek into the woods to find berries for dinner. Along with their pet goat, Willy, the children meet many other fun and amusing characters on their journey, which is sure to delight and amuse as they cleverly outwit the kooky candy witch, Lady Rosina Sweettooth.
