Family musical "Hans im Glück
by Jan Rademacher and Timo Riegelsberger - freely adapted from the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm

Franz is the luckiest man in all of Lüttjenblied, he has the biggest farm, wait! Franz? Isn't this play called Hans in Luck? That's right, it is. Even if, according to the opinion of his fellow citizens, he is not particularly lucky. But Hans is happy and content with what he has. But since his beloved Lissi wants a man like Franz, Hans leaves his home village to make his fortune.
He is apprenticed to master craftsman Rieck van Tüch in Lübeck and hardly sees daylight for the next seven years, always anxious to return as a made man.

When his apprenticeship is over, Hans finally wants to return to his beloved village of Lüttjenblied. To thank him for his work, the master gives him a lump of gold as big as his head. "Am I a lucky child!" he thinks to himself and sets off on his way home. But with each step toward home, the gold seems heavier and heavier, and when he encounters a rider high on a horse, Hans thinks to himself that a horse would make him even happier. So Hans trades his gold for it. This in turn he trades for a cow, which he trades for a pig, which he trades for a goose ...
On his way, Hans meets all kinds of bizarre characters, such as the goose thief Hanna and the scissor grinder Zacharias Zwippel.

Will Hans find happiness in the end? What does happiness mean? And does it mean the same thing to everyone?

Jan Radermacher and Timo Riegelsberger have written their very own musical from the well-known fairy tale with fantastic ideas and rousing songs for the Burgfestspiele.

Be there when four actors in over 15 roles embark on this adventurous and funny search for true, real happiness.
