National Youth Theater Presents Grimm Fairy Tales Jr. and Grimm Fairy Tales
THE WOODLANDS, TX – National Youth Theater (NYT) announces their upcoming productions of Grimm Fairy Tales Jr. (junior cast) and Grimm Fairy Tales (older cast), a story about a young girl named Red and her adventures in the town of Happily Ever After. NYT will be the first to perform these shows in the great state of Texas!
In Happily Ever After, the town is populated with characters from the Grimm Fairy Tales—numerous Prince Charmings, dwarves, the Frog Prince, and many princesses, including Snow White, Cinderella, and Rapunzel, to name a few. Rumplestiltskin, along with three witches—The Queen, from Snow White’s story, Carabosse, from Rapunzel’s story, and Lady Damara, the evil step-mother from Cinderella’s story— begin wreaking havoc on the town by rewriting everyone’s “happily ever after.” Rapunzel is now tone deaf, a brave Prince Charming is terrified of his own shadow, Snow White hates dwarves, and they’ve stripped the Fairy Godmother of her magic, stopping Cinderella from attending the ball.
Both casts are filled with phenomenal performers that will make you laugh and cheer during this hilarious musical story. The directorial team for Grimm Fairy Tales Jr. includes director Erica Gallegos, assistant director/co-vocal director Jim Hallford, co-vocal director Katrin Young, choreographer Carla Prescott, and intern choreographer Savannah Alexander. The directorial team for Grimm Fairy Tales includes director Justin Parks, vocal director Lisa Morales, and choreographer Jenny Moyado.
