Gretel & Hansel’s Camping Adventure @ Belchamps Scout Activity Centre
Jul 31 @ 2:00 pm

Play. Make. Theatre presents the world premiere of their new family production ‘GRETEL & HANSEL’S CAMPING ADVENTURE’ for TWO SHOW’s ONLY, outdoors within the woods at Belchamps Scout Activity Centre, Hockley.

This colourful, and captivating story adapted from the Grimm Brother’s classic tale by local Hockley writer/director, Katie Patrick immerses the audience into a world of adventure, edible houses and friendship. It’s Gretel’s first camping trip with her childhood friend ‘Hansel’ the teddy bear, her troop and Helga, the Troop leader. After a silly prank, Gretel becomes lost in the woods and stumbles across a cottage made entirely of sugary treats, but all is not as sweet as it seems.

Grab your cushions, picnic blankets and baskets and treat your family to this deliciously fun coming of age show in the great outdoors.

Gretel & Hansel’s Camping Adventure is suitable for all of the family and is jam-packed and sugar-coated with humor and heart.
