Cornerstone Youth Theatre presents Grimm Fairytales

Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin and Snow White must go looking for their “happily ever afters” in the new Cornerstone Youth Theatre presentation, Grimm Fairytales.

Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin and Snow White must go looking for their “happily ever afters” in the new Cornerstone Youth Theatre presentation, Grimm Fairytales.

The show that runs from Feb. 28 to March 9 at the first Church of the Nazarene in Red Deer, looks at what happens when somebody rewrites the happy endings of multiple Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

Suddenly Snow White doesn’t want a prince to wake her up because she hates the drudgery of taking care of seven dwarves. Cinderella’s fairy godmother loses the magic in her wand, Hansel and Gretel turn into sugar-crazed brats, and Sleeping Beauty’s courageous prince becomes the world’s biggest scaredy-cat.

The Frog Prince must help recover the Grimm Brothers’ Sacred Scroll before the “happily ever afters” disappear for good in this stage performance at 2 McVicar St.

The 11 shows include public and school matinees at 9:30 a.m., 12:15 and 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. evening performances. Pre-booked tickets for public performances are $12 ($11 seniors/$10 students) or $14 at the door.

Special rates apply for prebooked tickets during school day performances.
