(Photo/Kristin Snell) Missoula’s Hansel and Gretel performance Kristin Snell | Editor The Missoula Children’s Theater came to Lyon Coun- ty once again this year, sponsored by the River Valley Players. Nearly 60 children particpated in the produc- tion named “Hansel and Gretel.” The performance was held Friday, March 8. Modern day Hank and Gretchen find themselves in hard times and are unable to go to camp with their friends. They begin to read the book “Hansel and Gre- tel” and fall asleep in the middle of it. They awake to find themselves in funny clothes and in a strange place. They go in search of home when they meet the Wild- wood witch. Birds of the forest try to warn them to stay away in fear she will eat them, but as the story goes on, a twist of the original story begins to unfold.
