The New Jersey Ballet then returns with the family performance of Hansel and Gretel. A lively re-telling of the well-known fairy tale about a brother and sister who wander into a forest where they are captured by a witch in a fantastic gingerbread house. The spunky youngsters defeat the witch, free other children she had baked into gingerbread and are reunited with their loving parents in the happily-ever-after finale.

For more than half a century, New Jersey Ballet has thrilled audiences from Bergen to Cape May with top quality professional ballet and has given hundreds of thousands of adults and children their first introduction to ballet and inspired in many a lifelong love of the arts. New Jersey Ballet is proud to be designated a Major Arts Institution by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
