Hansel and Gretel
An impoverished woodcutter finds himself trapped by the burden of famine, unable to provide steady meals for his family. His second wife, a selfish woman, sees a way to fix this. She leads their children, little Hansel and Gretel, deep into a dark forest and leaves them. Lost, afraid, and hungry, the brother and sister wander in circles until they stumble upon a cottage. But this is no ordinary cottage. In place of bricks and mortar, its walls are made of cake and candy, and instead of a friendly forest dweller, the Gingerbread Witch emerges. She uses her palace of sweets to lure in the children and fatten them up so they’ll make a fine meal. Using their bravery and wit, the children work to escape her clutches and burn off the calories they’ve eaten before beach season, encountering fairies, trolls, and hobgoblins along the way.
Fountain Community Theater
Fountain Community Theater opened its doors in 2014 in order to, in the staff's own words, "bring Fountain together through theater and arts." Though their professional backgrounds are in other fields, every founding member shared a passion for family entertainment, along with a drive to inspire young audiences. And while they admit their beginnings took some trial and error, and some improvisation, the team stocked its inaugural season with a staggering 10 productions that include musicals, comedies, dramas, murder mystery plays, and children's theater. If its debut dectet of plays is any indication, Fountain theatergoers will enjoy countless outings in the years to come.
