This Weekend - Hansel & Gretel
Before you come see Hansel & Gretel this weekend, you can get to know them a little bit right now! Meet Hansel (Donnie-Ray Brearton) and Gretel (Elizabeth Silvia). We recently had the opportunity to ask them a few questions about working on the show. Here’s what they had to say -
Q: How long have you been with Kaleidoscope Theatre and what's your favorite part of working with the company?
Donnie-Ray: I have been with Kaleidoscope Theatre since 2006. My Favorite part of working with Kaleidoscope is that we get to perform at different theaters across New England and we are also like one big family.
Elizabeth: Well, I have been working with them for about three years now. My favorite part of working with them was probably playing Little Red Riding Hood. It’s really hard to decide what
was my favorite part because all of the shows that I have done are really fun!
Q: What's your favorite part of the show “Hansel & Gretel”?
Donnie-Ray: My favorite part of the show Hansel & Gretel is when Gretel and I discover the candy house.
Elizabeth: My favorite part is probably when Hansel is in the candy house and Misery (the cat), Hansel, and I have to figure out a plan to get him out!
Q. Should kids in the audience worry about being scared of the witch in the show?
Donnie-Ray: I don’t think that kids in the audience should worry about being scared of the witch because she is actually a funny character and in the show she also falls down a lot of times (ha-ha).
Elizabeth: I think the witch is the best part of the show! Kids shouldn’t be scared of her because she is sooo funny!!!
Come meet them in person this Saturday and Sunday at 2pm. Saturday's performance is at the Scottish Rite Auditorium (2115 Broad St.) in Cransto, RI and Sunday's show is at the Saugus Senior Center (466 Central St.) in Saugus, MA.
