Curtain Call’s Summer Youth Theatre celebrates its 23rd summer with this famed musical that intertwines characters and stories from the Brothers Grimm, featuring a cast of talented young performers high school to age twenty-one.
The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. The musical is tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, and their interaction with a Witch and her curse on them.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim with book by James Lapine.
Directed and Music Directed by George H. Croom.
