Music and Lyrics by Lewis Finn and Sam LaFrage  |  Book by Sam LaFrage

Follow the troupe of poor “Italian” actors as they present a twisted musical romp through the fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel” with PTA Moms, a raccoon dressed as an owl and a cottage made out of Mucinex boxes. Done in the style of Commedia dell’Arte, the show is highly-interactive — incorporating improvisation and loads of audience participation. Anyone from 3 to 103 is guaranteed to have a hilarious time! Winner of the Best Performing Arts Company (KidsPass Parent’s Choice Award), Ragtag Theatre Company is dedicated to creating fresh and inclusive theatre for families.
