The scene we play in the Portland Opera's Hansel and Gretel is actually very sweet and moving, but there is a slight nudge into the weird because we are wearing these chef costumes and the faces are a bit ghoulish.
It's especially amusing during rehearsals, as we are only in the wings and heads, not the fat suits or outfits. We are fourteen silent chefs, skinny with fat heads and polystyrene wings. We are quite a spectacle.
