Hansel and Gretel’s Halloween Adventure Performed At The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre Written and Directed by Bruce Cannon and Candice Burridge with Music by Daryl Kojak October 1 – November 1, 2014 City Parks Foundation announces the return of Hansel and Gretel's Halloween Adventure, a holiday themed show inspired by the adventures of the classic fairytale duo at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre. Hansel and Gretel’s Halloween Adventure picks up where the original Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre production leaves off; with the pair’s pet swan Samantha flying the children back to their humble home after their wild escapade in the forest. Safely back at home during the Halloween season; Hansel and Gretel experience the most vivid dreams where Central Park and the Belvedere Castle serve as the backdrop for a magical explosion of music, dance and exciting encounters with a host of lovable characters. The brother and sister team once again embark on an adventure where beautiful mermaids, adorable monsters, swashbuckling pirates, charming vampires and a fabulous witch all intertwine for one unforgettable Halloween night in New York City. "Since its Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre debut in 2012, Hansel & Gretel's Halloween Adventure has established itself as a classic in its own right, having won over children and adults alike with its captivating story-line and charming cast of characters. We're thrilled to bring back this holiday favorite for another season," said City Parks Foundation's Director of Arts and Cultural Program, Ian Noble.

We work in over 750 parks citywide, presenting a broad range of free arts, sports, and education programs, and empowering citizens to support their parks on a local level. Our programs and community building initiatives reach more than 600,000 people each year, contributing to the revitalization of neighborhoods throughout New York City. The enchanting Swedish architecture and craftsmanship of the Swedish Cottage which was suggestive of a model schoolhouse caught the eye of Central Park creator Fredrick Law Olmsted, who brought it to Central Park in 1877. A traveling marionette company was founded in 1939 and in 1947 the Swedish Cottage became home to the company. In 1973, a permanent theater was constructed inside the Swedish Cottage, designed for marionette performances. Since then, hundreds of thousands of children and families from around the world have enjoyed its original productions. Under the direction of City Parks Foundation, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre and CityParks PuppetMobile continues to thrill audiences from around the world, entertaining upwards of 65,000 people each year.
