This play, directed by Billie Nye-Muller, takes three much loved fairy tales and puts a slight twist on the stories. The first of the three interwoven tales tells the story of Cinders Charming (Cinderella), trying to be a good princess. But that’s easier said than done when the overpowering Queen of Aboodistan storms into the Charming kingdom threatening war if she doesn’t get her way.
In the second story, poor Pinocchio is failing school because the Blue Fairy never got around to finishing the job of giving him the head of a real boy. His nasty teacher, Miss Grimsnot, becomes prey for the clever Lampwick and his friend, Foxy. When Pinocchio finds out, he uses his wooden head to save the day.
In the final story, Snow White has opened her own fashion boutique. But that doesn’t stop her wicked stepmother, up to her old tricks again, from making an encore appearance.
Bring the kids and come enjoy some exciting live entertainment. After each show, the audience is invited to a small reception to meet the cast and crew. The show with the reception will be approximately two hours long.
