As the leaves of the trees in New York are about to change to red and gold, and in between apple picking, harvest festivals and getting ready for Halloween, be sure to stop by Central Park for the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater’s new show, Hansel & Gretel’s Halloween Adventure. The classic children’s tale is getting a Halloween makeover in a special performance you won’t want to miss! As always, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater has put on a show that appeals to young kids with a festive atmosphere, colorful marionettes and infectious, lively music.
Safely back at home during the Halloween season; Hansel and Gretel experience the most vivid dreams where Central Park and the Belvedere Castle serve as the backdrop for a magical explosion of music, dance and exciting encounters with a host of lovable characters. The brother and sister team once again embark on an adventure where beautiful mermaids, adorable monsters, swashbuckling pirates, charming vampires and a fabulous witch all intertwine for one unforgettable Halloween night in New York City.
