Woodstock Third Grader Ethan Lasenyik Debuts on the Stage

 

Carmel Elementary School third grader, Ethan Lasenyik, made his acting debut as Hansel in this past weekend's performance of Hansel & Gretel, a Children's Garden Theater original retelling of the classic fairy tale.  The show, under the direction of Artistic Director Don Goodner, is approximately an hour long and is performed by a wonderful cast of kids ages 4-15.  There are two more performances on Saturday, February 11th at 11am and 3pm where families can come and enjoy this kid-friendly show.  An additional date of February 18th is presently being considered.  As you may recall....tired of enduring their mother's attempts to make them eat vegetables, Hansel and Gretel go out in search of the fabled House of Gingerbread so that they can eat candy for the rest of their lives. What could possibly go wrong?!?!
