Summer kids theater performs two fairy tales
The children's summer theater program - through Community Education - acted out two mixed-up fairy tales on Thursday and Friday. "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "After Ever Happily" were performed both nights in the auditorium.|
"Jack and the Beanstalk" used the traditional characters from that story but added twists to their personalities and to the plot.
In "After Ever Happily," Cinderella (Avery Davidson) flirts with her Frog Prince (Kellen Anderson). Community Education's summer theater presented two plays on Thursday and Friday nights in the auditorium.
The second short play drew from many fairy tales as it told the tale of a girl who mixed and combined them by opening an old storybook. The pages of the book were jumbled, and chaos ensued. Cinderella kissed the frog prince; the evil queen from Snow White fell in love with Rumpelstiltskin; Hansel and Gretel ate aluminum siding off a house; and Prince Charming ditched Snow White for Sleeping Beauty.
