Local Students Performed Hansel & Gretel
Missoula Children’s Theatre offered a wonderful free opportunity for Hampshire County children to participate in a production of the classic tale, Hansel & Gretel. Students were able to show off their acting talents in a fun, modern-day musical adaptation of the classic tale, with expert guidance from 2 professional actor/directors, wrapping up with two performances July 23.
