The Villains return this Hallowe’en!

This autumn, North Barn Theatre presents, with generous support from The Villain’s Theatre:
Hänsel und Gretel in: der Garten von Edible Horrors: a Terrible Parable


Wilkommen! You are invited on a bittersweet adventure with your two favourite German mooches, Hänsel und Gretel. Join them on a Grimm journey around the bonfire, through the Black Forest, right into the succulent heart of evil itself, in this pitch-black comedy from the spooky, Villainous creator who brought you Zomblet, with puppets created by the incomparable North Barn Theatre (Troubling Joy, Late Night Radio). 

Playing twice nightly (7:30pm and 9pm), this 45 minute outdoor show runs from October 21-23 in Antigonish at North Barn Theatre, and October 28-31 in Dartmouth at Shubie Campground. All tickets are pay-what-you-can.
