What the Press Said:
“Almost perfect in every way. You couldn’t come up with more ideal holiday entertainment for the kiddies if you had the purse of a Saudi Prince at your disposal, and parents will love the show just as much as the little ones will…I cannot remember anything approaching the sheer professional gloss of Hansel and Gretel…Abrahamse deserves real credit for treating his primarily diminutive audience no different to the adult ones he entertains at professional theatres. With the help of his partner in crime Meyer, who contributed the catchy and quite wonderful songs and who also designed the costumes, he has crafted something that is sure to leave an indelible impression on the young ones” THE NEXT 48 HOURS
