   TV Ad

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 acting, 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 24th season in 2009. 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.
