UW German class to dramatize Grimms’ fairy tales — May 30- 31 —

25 May

What happens when you venture into the forest? For many fairy tale characters, a journey through the forest functions as a test of character and affects their lives forever–for better or worse.

Three of Grimms’ fairy tales involving forest journeys will be performed by UW German students in an original theatrical adaptation. The tales are Hänsel und Gretel, Die drei Männlein im Walde (The Three Little Men in the Woods), and Der Räuberbräutigam (The Robber Bridegroom). The plays are in German; a synopsis in English is available to the audience.

Performances are on May 30 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ethnic Cultural Theater. Der Räuberbräutigam contains graphic imagery and may not be suitable for small children.
