MICHIANA SHORES — Dunes Summer Theatre presents this summer’s Theatre-for-Young Audiences production of Hansel and Gretel Meet the Swamp Witch.

This adaptation of the classic tale was written by Mark A. Pence, with music and lyrics by Julie Shannon. Tito Sanchez, from Valparaiso, directs the production.

This wacky, spicy twist on a fairy-tale favorite follows Hansel Jo and Gretel Lou as they journey into the Louisiana Bayou in search of a legendary long-lost pirate treasure. But danger lurks deep in the Everglades where Badweena the Swamp Witch and her wacky alligator henchmen live and they have a certain taste for…well, come see the show and you’ll find out!
