Fairy Tales and Theatre

More Fairy Tale theatre events around the globe:

New London Theatre Presents Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood: "New London Theatre [in Gwinnett, Georgia] will present 'Cinderella/Little Red Riding Hood' opening September 18th and continuing through September 27th, 2009.

"'Cinderella' is the story of a girl who lives unhappily with her stepmother and two silly stepsisters and dreams of meeting the prince. Cinderella makes it to the ball, meets the basketball-crazy prince, but has to rush out at the stroke of midnight, leaving behind her high-top basketball shoe. The prince searches for the girl who knows all about basketball, but can Cinderella answer the basketball question? It's magic!

"'Little Red Riding Hood' is a mixed-up fairy tale where she meets the seven singing dwarves, a bashful wolf as well as a confused stagehand on her way to Grandmother's house. And there's only minutes until they turn out the lights!"

PANTO COMPETITION: Design costumes for the Ugly Sisters: "Panto season is approaching and the Maidenhead Drama Guild (MDG) [in the UK] is busy preparing for its version of the classic fairy tale Cinderella.

"Cinderella’s ugly sisters have a major part to play in the pantomime and will need suitable costumes to fit their part.

"MDG has teamed up with the Advertiser to give two local young readers, aged 16 or under, the chance to design costumes for the wicked stepsisters."

The Snow Queen is being performed as a ballet in Brisbane, Australia. There are other performances like Sleeping Beauty listed on the same page.

The Brave Tin Soldier is being performed with shadow puppets and other multimedia in Eisenach, Germany.
