Strolling players appear in Muskogeee

A clever band of strolling players performs the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, according to a media release. The performance has borrowed from the Oriental theatre the mute “Propman,” who changes the set and acts out minor characters and props in mime. This troupe with a little help from their audience will recreate the story of a brother and sister, some bread crumbs, and a house made of candy, the release states.

“We’re thrilled that Hansel and Gretel will make a stop in Muskogee this year,” John Barton, president of BancFirst Muskogee said in the release. “Each year BancFirst sponsors a chosen production of Oklahoma Children’s Theatre, and the performers do a great job energizing the students and bringing a quality performance to the community.”     

Oklahoma Children’s Theatre chose Hansel and Gretel for the touring production because it is educational and entertaining, exposing children to the arts, according to the release.

Muskogee is not the only stop for Hansel and Gretel. The BancFirst tour will make appearances in several other cities throughout the state. The program has been sponsored by BancFirst for 19 years.
