Hansel and Gretel

In Le Theatre de Marionette’s latest production, the puppeteers put a new spin on the classic tale of sibling camaraderie, wicked witches, and frosting used as spackle. Their pet goat Willy in tow, the titular brother and sister head into the woods to gather berries, planning to be back in time for supper. While they encounter many friendly faces along the way such as bunnies, deer, and skunks, they also run into someone more sinister: Lady Rosina Sweettooth. The maniacal witch has built a cottage out of candy, and Hansel and Gretel are likely to take a bite, thus becoming captives who must figure out a way to escape.

Le Theatre de Marionette

“It all starts with an idea and block of wood,” John Hopkins, founder of Le Theatre de Marionette, marvels on his website. While that may be true for marionette-theater productions ranging from Hansel and Gretel to The Wizard of Oz, it took a little more for Le Theatre itself. John began the operation in a defunct bus station in Arlington, drawing in families with just the skill of his hands and voice, before achieving enough success to move to Dallas and expand from one theatre to three. He also brought on a skilled team of puppeteers and voice actors. Yet despite the company’s growth, John remains hands on, helping to shape those ideas and blocks of wood into puppets, sets, and smaller blocks of wood.

“It all starts with an idea and block of wood,” says John Hopkins, founder of Geppetto's Theater & Workshop. While that may be true for his meticulously hand-carved marionettes—which star in the full gamut of classic children’s stories from Hansel and Gretel to The Wizard of Oz—it took a little more for Geppetto's Theater & Workshop itself. John began his performances in a defunct bus station in Arlington, drawing in families with just the skill of his hands and voice, before achieving enough success to move to Dallas and expand his skilled team of puppeteers and voice actors.
