Merlyn Productions transports children into the world of the Brothers Grimm, which can be a little grim, sexist and darker than most contemporary kid’s entertainment.

In the first of three fairy tales, King Thrushbeard teaches his foolish princess daughter a lesson after she rejects every suitor in the land because of their looks. The youngsters will recognize her as the original mean girl. A happy ending is ensured when she mends her wicked ways.

The fisherman’s greedy wife gets her comeuppance in the second story, followed by The Elves and the Shoemaker, which sends everyone home with a comforting message.

The stories are enthusiastically presented but not necessarily received the same way by the kids.

— Kevin Prokosh

From the Fringe program:

The stories of "King Thrushbeard", "The Fisherman and His Wife" and "The Elves and The Shoemaker" come to life through the magic of live theatre and storytelling!

With twists of comedy and audience participation, Grimm's characters learn valuable lessons while all three classic fairy tales resolve in a happy ending.

From the producer of Cinderella! Cinderella! (4 STARS, 2009 Best of Fest) and Snow White the Comedy.
