2018 Scholastic Tour
The Grimm Brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, have written the most popular fairytales of all time! When the brothers are invited on a book reading tour to local schools to read their own stories to students, they discover that their once happy endings are not so happy after all! Someone has re-written their stories! In a panic, they realize that someone must go back to the Land of Happily Ever After to re-write all the stories and fix everything that has gone wrong! A brave young girl is chosen by the brothers for this task, and is guided by the Frog Prince through the Land of Happily Ever After, and into the Grimm Fairytales. There, she encounters some of our favorite Grimm characters; such as Snow White, Cinderella, the Big Bad Wolf, Rumpelstiltskin and more beloved characters! Join us on this fairytale musical adventure, featuring high-energy singing and dancing, as we rediscover these timeless tales, with a fun, new twist!
