Fairy Tale Theatre 2007

youth theatre produced by Jo Beth Britt & Richard Van Den Akker

Auditions: 2-5 p.m. April 21 & 22, 2007
Shows: June 21-24, 2007

Cast lists and photos are on each play's web page.

We are proud to present Fairy Tale Courtroom, Brothers Grimm: Out of Order, Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine, and The Dragons of Spring, an original script by Vicksburg Playwright Richard Van Den Akker.

Fairy Tale Theatre is open to children ages seven through eighteen. Through Fairy Tale Theatre, children gain experience in many of the areas of theatre such as learning lines, making costumes, helping with set construction, and helping backstage.

Fairy Tale Theatre, established in 1986 by Don and Kathryn Resio, will celebrate its 22nd season in 2007. Many of the props and sets have been made by our parents, whose participation is essential to the success of our program. We need interested adults to help in all areas.
