The classic children's tale "Hansel and Gretel" gets an updated treatment when the Philadelphia Theater Caravan opens its production Dec. 14 at Plays and Players Theater. This version by the traveling children's theater troupe touches upon such contemporary issues as divorce, unemployment and abandonment, with additional inspiration from paintings from Picasso's "rose" period. The show is a bargain, costing $5 per person, adult or child. It will be performed at 10 a.m. on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays through Dec. 23. Plays and Players Theater is at 1714 Delancey Place.

Hansel and Gretel is having a birthday - the opera, that is, not Grimm's fairy tale. Engelbert Humperdinck's opera for children of all ages turned 100 yesterday. And over at the Academy of Vocal Arts, Roy Wilbur feels glad that his company "is the only one in the country" that actually gave a performance - not to mention a post-opera party - on the actual anniversary. If you missed the birthday performance, there still are a number of opportunities to see AVA's production, which is becoming a tradition in the manner of the Pennsylvania Ballet's The Nutcracker.

A musical adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Hansel and Gretel opens Saturday at the Hedgerow Theatre in Rose Valley.

Hedgerow Theatre is at 64 Rose Valley Rd. Admission is $5. For information or reservations, call 565-4211.

In our town, we like to think we have it all at holiday time - the Pennsylvania Ballet's million-dollar production of The Nutcracker, the Philly Pops' jazz-lush standards, a Philadelphia Orchestra Christmas series of high orchestral-butterfat content, and any number of Messiahs. But there's an important piece missing in action, something you can't see and hear. Something you should. And something that's a lot more than a holiday chestnut - in fact, a piece that could be the answer to what ails a lot of arts groups both short- and long-term.

Jena Savio sat in the darkened school gymnasium, looking very much like an angel. She and the five other first graders who wore white choir gowns over their clothes were sitting in the first row, tittering together as they waited for the school assembly to begin. This was the day the opera had come to the school. And Jena and the other "angels" were going to be participants in the show rather than just spectators. "I'm not nervous," said 6-year-old Jena, talking about her walk-on part.

GRIMM. 9 tonight, NBC 10. SILAS WEIR Mitchell doesn't know who wrote the Wikipedia entry that describes him as an "actor known for playing disturbing or unstable characters.

Before he was Monroe, who practices Pilates to tame his inner Big Bad Wolf in NBC's "Grimm," the Chester County native was probably best known as "Prison Break" convict Charles "Haywire" Patoshik, who had "schizoaffective disorder with bipolar tendencies," and as ex-con Donny Jones on "My Name Is Earl," "who had a very quick temper, sort of a hairtrigger.

Most years, a theme emerges from what's being called "Presented Fringe," the hand-picked segment of Philadelphia's FringeArts festival, and "Neighborhood Fringe," the anything-goes assortment of works by local and itinerant arts groups and individuals. Last year's theme - lots and lots of naked bodies - didn't translate so well to family-friendly entertainment. But this year, everything's coming up interdisciplinary, and that's good news for children, who will probably like the concept better if it's presented as a game of connect-the-dots they play with their minds.

In the fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel left a trail of bread crumbs. In Philadelphia, police followed a trail of cartridges - and there, they found the bandit who they say was shot with his own handgun during a carjacking. The saga started in Oxford Circle early Wednesday evening, while it was still light outside. Thomas Greenwald, 23, had stopped at the Hess station on Roosevelt Boulevard near Devereaux Street. Greenwald, who lives in the Northeast, was putting gas into his Mercury Mountaineer when he leaned into the back seat to organize a few things.

Vocal recitals aren't a huge sell in Philadelphia, but for those who attend them, the sophisticated, wide-reaching program presented Monday by Finnish mezzo-soprano Monica Groop inspired no outward ambivalence - even with the name Schoenberg looming at the end of the program - and enough displays of deserved appreciation that she sang three encores. Unlike recitals that are about communing with a beloved opera star, Groop's program of Schubert, Mahler, Bartok and Schoenberg (presented at the Kimmel Center by the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society)

Fresh off a Grammy win for Best Musical Album for Children, Dan Zanes and Friends will perform two shows at the Gordon Theater in Camden this weekend. Catch That Train features Zulu folk songs, a song about the joys of farming, an old labor organizing tune, and a few essential train songs - all to encourage the entire family and community to participate in music. Zanes, whose own family includes his wife and daughter Anna, gave up the rock-and-roll life he led as front man of the popular '80s band The Del Fuegos to conquer the playground set. His discography as a children's artist includes dance albums, maritime music, and an unusual host of instruments and collaborating "friends.
