CCU Opera Workshop to perform 'Hansel and Gretel'

  Katie Clark, on the left, is Gretel, and Brittany Shirley, on the right, is Hansel in the Opera Workshop production of "Hansel and Gretel." Jeffrey Jones, voice faculty, in the middle, plays their father.  
The Opera Workshop of Coastal Carolina University will perform Engelbert Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" at 3 p.m. on both Saturday, Dec. 17 and Sunday, Dec. 18 in Wheelwright Auditorium.

Directed by David Bankston, professor of music, with musical direction by Steven Gross, associate professor of theatre, "Hansel and Gretel" is the first full-length operatic production performed by CCU students. The production stars students Brittany Shirley as Hansel and Katie Clark as Gretel.

Humperdinck's piece, premiering in the late 19th century, is based on the Grimm Brothers' classic fairy tale about two siblings who, while looking for food in the forest, must outwit an evil witch to avoid being baked and eaten.

General admission is $10; alumni and senior citizens (age 65 and over) are $7; CCU and HGTC faculty and staff are $7; CCU and HCTG students are $5; and children (10 and under) are free with ticket. For tickets and additional information, contact the Wheelwright Box Office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 843-349-2502.
