‘Grimm Fairytales’ takes stage at Hononegah PAC Nov. 15-24
ROCKTON, Ill. — Spotlight Youth Theater will stage Grimm Fairytales Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 23-24 on stage at the Hononegah Performing Arts Center, 307 Salem St., Rockton, Ill.
What if “happily ever after” simply … disappeared? When a social outcast is thrust into a magical world where fairy tale characters are very much alive, she realizes her visit has caused a bit of an upset. Because of her, the Grimm Brothers’ Sacred Scroll, pen and inkwell used to write the fairy tales have been stolen — and someone is rewriting the happy endings to every single story. With the help of the Frog Prince, an eighth dwarf, and a few other guides along the way, this girl must retrieve the scroll, the pen and the inkwell before Happily Ever After disappears for good!
Shows will be at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 15; 2 and 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 16; 3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 17; 2 and 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 23; and 3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 24.
Tickets are $9-$12 in advance, or $11-$14 at the door. Call (847) 516-2298 or visit www.spotlight.org for advance tickets.
