FRINGE REVIEW: Fairly Scary Fairy Tales

A refreshing look at the comical antics of three teens who must earn their “Camp Squealy Moo” badges, while following implicit instructions written in the camp director’s manual. They cannot deviate from the instructions, or all will be lost. The tempo of the play is upbeat, amusing, with the actors using a variety of theatrical elements such as singing, dancing, and acrobatics. The director skillfully juxtaposes stories within stories, with a new and whimsical twist on Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and Goldilocks which brought forth laughter from the audience of young and old alike. The actors involved children from the audience to illustrate the story plots, which added a sweetness to the overall affect of the play. Directed by Jan Taylor and Laura Rusfeldt with teen performers, Annie Pumphrey, Luc Sanscartier, and Jen Peebles.  Highly recommended for children ages three to twelve years.

Four out of five stars.
