The Rehoboth Summer Children’s Theatre is thrilled to announce a return to live, in-person performances for 2021. “Hansel and Gretel” will travel to locations throughout Sussex and Kent counties from Monday, July 26 through Friday, Aug. 13. The play is the newest two-actor show created by company co-founder Steve Seyfried.
The RSCT production of the Brothers Grimm classic features the familiar elements: lost children, a hungry witch and a magic gingerbread cottage. However, as audiences have come to expect, the story takes a surprising twist that is sure to delight children and adults alike. Jared Calhoun and Leah Senseney are the multi-talented actors who bring all the characters to life in this sparking, 45-minute production.
The Cape Region schedule of free public performances includes: 10:30 a.m., Thursday, July 29, Lewes Public Library; 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 5, Lewes Canalfront Park; 11 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 12, Millsboro Public Library; and 3 p.m., Aug. 12, Georgetown Public Library. Other performance venues include libraries in Delmar, Dover, Seaford, Frankford, Bridgeville, Selbyville, and Odessa, along with Brecknock Park in Kent County and Freeman Arts Pavilion in Selbyville.
