...A STAGECOACH YOUTH THEATRE Production......Adapted for the stage by John Glore......Based on the children's book by Jon Scieszka & Lane Smith......Directed by Loki Miller
....Though the characters may be familiar, many of our favorite storybook fables are uproariously derailed in a delightful one-act play of this quintessential children's book. Everything from "Chicken Little" to "The Gingerbread Man" gets a complete makeover. Characters slide in and out of stories as Cinderella meets Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Running Shorts beats the wolf to grandmother's house, and the Boy Who Cried Cow Patty takes on "The Little Red Hen" in this hilarious tongue-in-cheek retelling of fractured fairy tales. Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around!
- "A mad hysterical mashup of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Mad Magazine, Mother Goose and literary anarchy." - Children's Book Review Publisher's Weekly
