"Pam's full-scale operetta for children is awesome! There is lots of high drama, fine singing, and clever song lyrics set to an all-classical score. I got lots of laughs-it is a bit campy, but very appropriate for grown-ups and children of all ages. Two Thumbs Up!" ~ Rev Scott Sammler-Michael

 

"Hansel, Gretel, and the Little Green Dragon manages to be very entertaining while serving up a nice helping of classical music." ~ George Hummel

Great classical music in a sugar-coated dose featuring the hilarious antics of Alouette the Dragon, playing the part of the witch's pet.. I play the wacky witch herself, Carlotta Schmaltzenegger.
