Dear friends, thank you for your support in both attending our recent production of “Faerie Tales,” and also donating to our Indiegogo fundraising campaign. With your help we were able to raise most of the funds necessary to cover the costs of this production. However, we did not make our fundraising goal, and therefore we may have to conduct another campaign in order to close that gap and cover the rest of our costs.
In the meantime, we are preparing our next events – we can’t formally announce them yet, as there is still some paperwork to be done, but as soon as we can, this website will be updated with the latest news.
In addition, you may have noticed that our website has an entirely new appearance. We have upgraded our site in order to more easily bring you the latest news in a timely fashion. So whether you follow us here, on Facebook, on Twitter, or with our email newsletter (which, admittedly, we have been a bit lax in sending out – our apologies), we thank you for your attention.
Watch our trailer to learn about “FAERIE TALES” produced earlier this year — May 23-26, 2013 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Watertown, MA
“FAERIE TALES” is a new creation – a pair of one-act musicals set in the “land of faerie,” the fictional setting of all traditional fairy tales from days of yore.
Act 1 is “Goblin Market” – by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon, music by Polly Pen, based on the original Victorian-era poem by Christina Rossetti
Act 2 is the World Premiere of “The Rag Doll” – written as a companion piece to “Goblin Market,” and loosely based on the Grimm’s Fairy Tale “The Goose Girl at the Spring.” Book by Silvia Graziano, music and lyrics by David Reiffel
“Faerie Tales” featured Teresa Winner Blume and Abigail Clarke (pictured above)
Directed by Jesse Strachman * Music Direction by Dan Rodriguez * Choreography by Kira Cowan
Performed at the Arsenal Center for the Arts Black Box, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA 02472
