"Hansel & Gretel" by the WPA

(WPA poster, image courtesy of the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.) 

Hansel and Gretel, the story of a brother and sister lured into a house made of sweets, by a wicked witch, was performed by WPA actors in the Federal Theater. In the poster above, we see that it was performed in the Greek Open Air Theatre, in Los Angeles, California.
