Fairy tales begin “once upon a time” and end “happily ever after.” Not so fast! After all the dreams come true in this Tony Award winning musical, everybody returns to the woods for a reality check. Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame) and Rapunzel get tangled up with a bevy of other fairytale characters​—and a few new ones created to add to the chaos—and discover the unexpected consequences of having wishes come true.  Journey with the Summer Players into a fantastical world where traditional fairytales take on fractured new lives and teach important new lessons.

(SCR’s Summer Players are dedicated actors who audition for roles in the annual production after at least a year in the Theatre Conservatory.)
