What really happened after “once upon a time”? You’ll find out in this fun, fractured fairy tale! A substitute narrator is called in on short notice to present stories from a stack of fairy tale books. But just as each tale begins its ”once upon a time,” the main characters show up to interrupt and correct the newbie narrator’s telling of their story.
Turns out, these characters have hysterical idiosyncrasies: Rapunzel is an insufferable diva, Cinderella is a clean freak, the Three Little Pigs are hypochondriacs, Little Red Riding Hood is a lawyer defending the Wolf, and more. The chaos continues until the frustrated narrator finally breaks down. It’s up to the characters to comfort the narrator and explain what really happened after “once upon a time.” Wouldn’t you know? Everyone lived happily ever after, of course!
What Happened After Once upon a Time, directed by Jennifer Sparks, will be presented in X*ACT's Kettering Health Network Theater starting Friday, December 8 and offered through Sunday, December 17. And as a special extra, there will be two Sunday matinees, December 10 and the 17th and each will start at 3:00 p.m. Our Opening Night Santa Gala FUNDRAISER will feature a visit by the bearded fellow himself.
What Happened After Once upon a Time is sponsored by Xenia Shoe and Leather and Better Images Photography. Our 2017-18 Season "Defying Expectations" is sponsored by Greene Memorial Hospital, Caesar Creek Vineyards, and WBZI Radio. We are supported in part by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
