SEATTLE, WA – Pacific Northwest Ballet presents Hansel & Gretel, a specially-created, hour-long matinee performance for children and families. Like PNB’s previous Family Matinee productions of Snow White and Pinocchio, Hansel & Gretel features almost 60 students of Pacific Northwest Ballet School along with a special guest, renowned PNB principal dancer Ariana Lallone. Based on the classic fairy tale, this narrated ballet tells the story of Hansel and Gretel, hungry and lost in the forest, who stumble upon a house made of delicious confections, and find themselves welcomed by a witch whose keen interest in them has a sinister motive. Perfectly timed for children and a wonderful introduction to dance and theater, creator Bruce Wells’ Hansel & Gretel will be performed three times only at Seattle Center’s McCaw Hall. Performances are at 12:00 noon and 3:30 pm on Sunday, March 21 and 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 27. For tickets and more information, visit or call 206.441.2424.
