‘The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon’ at Flint Hill School

The Upper School Dessert Theater will present “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon,” Nov. 6-7, at the Olson Theater, on Flint Hill’s Lower and Middle School Campus. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m.

Two narrators and a large cast will attempt to recreate all 209 of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in a wild, fast-paced extravaganza. To make it more difficult, they will attempt to combine them into one gigantic fable using such favorites as: Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella, as well as other more obscure stories like Lean Lisa and The Devil’s Grandmother.

This play is rated PG-13. The performances are open to the public and there is no admission charge. Register here: www.flinthill.org/flint-hill-dessert-theater-the-brothers-grimm-spectaculathon/.
