Youngsters to join 'Hansel and Gretel' performers

Tabor College Opera will present three performances of “Hansel and Gretel” at 7 p.m. Nov. 8-10 in the Prieb Harder Black Box Theater in the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts.

This year’s show will involve dance students from Hillsboro’s Studio 23 as well as a children’s chorus put together specifically for these performances. Stephenson said between dancers and singers, 35 children will participate.

“This is the second year we’ve done ‘Hansel and Gretel’ for our fall show, and we’re looking forward to continuing this tradition,” said Jen Stephenson, director of opera and assistant professor of music at Tabor.

Krista Matlock, lead instructor at Studio 23, said her 22 students will perform a 5-minute dance.

“We’re excited about it,” Matlock said. “It gives our students an opportunity to perform.”

Admission is free, but seating is limited.
