Hansel, Gretel and The Hoff!

Have your say

A COMIC twist is given to the classic story ‘Hansel And Gretel’ when students at Holgate Comprehensive School in Hucknall stage their pantomime later this month.

For the tale is set in Olde Holgersville and centres around Hansel and Gretel, the Hasselhoff twins (!), who live in the town’s mill with their dad, Cuthbert, their stepmum, Pru, and their beautiful older sister, Lola.

It is a story of how they run away from home, afraid of their stepmother’s plans to send them away to Scotland, and end up trapped in a cage in the forest.

Characters include the witch, Scorpio, Dame Dumpling and identical twins Hugh and Stu, while there is even a visit from Cuthbert Hasselhoff’s billionaire brother, David!

Tickets for the performances, on Tuesday November 29 and Thursday December 1, are on sale at the school,
